There have been no small number of breathtaking restorations made available of late, but to my mind that of DIAMONDS OF THE NIGHT represents a new peak, and not only because Němec has meant so much to me for twenty years. A remarkable feat of preservation. The film has Buñuel's ants. There are the two others Bs (Bresson, Bergman). It exists on a continuum between Resnais and Nick Roeg. But it is a singular rapture.
