Maribou's rating of the film Les hautes solitudes

Jean Seberg has a great face for close-ups. This silent, Warholesque film-portrait of her (and a few friends) couldn't maintain my interest alone but with my own music soundtrack playing it was fitfully diverting. Les Hautes Solitudes is at its best when Seberg makes direct eye contact through the lens and we are pulled into her emotional orbit. Overall though: flat and unengaging. Better on the big screen?
