“There are musicians who practice all the time but we actors are not able to do that. We don't have an instrument, except if you say we are our own instrument, and yet I always try to continue searching and working for the moment where you have to deliver.”

    LA BELLE NOISEUSE

    JACQUES RIVETTE France, 1991

    To the scratch of a nib and the squelch of paint, Rivette’s sonorous and newly restored drama, immerses us in the artistic process, as a battle of wills unfolds between Michel Piccoli’s aging painter and Emmanuelle Béart’s reluctant muse. Roll up your sleeves because things are getting messy.

    DEATH IN THE GARDEN

    LUIS BUÑUEL France, 1956

    Shot in brilliant Eastmancolor, Death in the Garden is one of Luis Buñuel’s most overlooked gems: a pulsating, far-side-of-the-world adventure film alive with the master’s surrealist gestures and subversive attitude. The star-studded cast includes Simone Signoret and Michel Piccoli.

    THEMROC

    CLAUDE FARALDO France, 1973

    Known for his suave, bourgeois characters, Michel Piccoli underwent a brutish and animalistic transformation in Claude Faraldo’s provocative cult film, which dispenses entirely with dialogue. Comprising grunts and gestures, Themroc is an antiestablishment battle cry against society’s conformism.
