I have a soft-corner for early Assayas. A definitive post-68 film that is filled with visual and aural tropes that is a signature of the generation. And the music, oh that music! Especially in that party when GNR, Cohen and Nico play one after the other. And Janitor of Lunacy. Musically perhaps the most significant film of its time.
i just can't believe i discovered this film after such a long time!!!!!! i vaguely remember watching its trailer when i was 12-13, but i couldn't find it cuz it's quite rare so i totally forgot about it. this film=perfect frames of all teen-all. KUDOS MUBI
Seeing as I'm the first to write on this movie's wall, and the first to put it on a list, I'm inclined to ask WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE. Is that a particle of dust on my screen? No, it's a freaking PIXEL on the last star. Come on 42 fans beside me, commit.
