L'eau froide

Olivier Assayas France, 1994

F.Bieberkopf's rating of the film Cold Water

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.
