I love libraries!!!
This just keeps getting better and better as it goes along. Sort of a haunting, autumnal, French equivalent of Dazed and Confused. Every scene is a banger. The music cues had my jaw hanging open. I’ve always wanted to see Nico’s “Janitor of Lunacy” used exactly the way Assayas uses it here: as the soundtrack to lost souls in a cold, rainy, pastoral landscape, captured in a glacial tracking shot that would have made Tarkovsky proud.
