  1. Aditya Watts's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    Ugh. Juvenile. ARG is toooo intellectually motivated for my tastes and although I could admire The Erasers, this is just intolerably vapid. Reminiscent of Jarmusch's Limits of Control.

  2. Royce Jr.'s rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    pretty much sum up what i hate about French cinema, half-wit experimental, artsy-fartsy, excessive obsession for naked women

  3. natalieb's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    fascinant et super bien construit. Jean-Louis Trintignant est parfait.

  4. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

  5. -REM-'s rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

  6. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

  7. rllr's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    Watching a film in a film + biking home afterwards in the exact same streets as in Trans-Europ-Express gave this screening an extra Robbe-Grillet dimension (I haven't noticed Marie-France Pisier around though...).

  8. Gyseltrut's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    Somewhere between 3,5 and 4 stars.

  9. Ebru Yörükoğlu's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

  10. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

  11. HSBilly's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

  12. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    Very 'meta' and just a little bit kinky. A winning combination.

  13. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    I dig it when French movies are silly. Godard definitely should have done more silly films. I met Robbe-Grillet. Jealous? You should be. Only problem with him is that he kept speaking French even after I shouted, "I can't understand you!" Of course he lost his mind right around 'Eden and Apres' and started doing nudies. Sacré Bleu, mes amis! Pas possible! Oui! Non! Oui! Pain perdue!

  14. Odile~'s rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    Trintignant era DEMASIADO ♥

  15. santiago alzate botero's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    the award for creepiest misogynist director goes to

  16. noice's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

  17. mpho3's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    I usually don't enjoy movies about making movies, but Trans-Europ-Express is clever and entertaining. Loved el fin: "Those true stories are always boring." Hahahaha.

  18. Timbo of Boston's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    Three poor writers try to put together a spy movie on the titular train and we watch the results. Characters and crime tropes come and go and fold back over themselves. It moves along w/o any real sense of real cause and effect. The clichés and scenes are lodged in our collective memory from decades of thrillers. Music peppers it randomly. A real New Wave precursor to Jarmusch's The Limits of Control!! Great . . .

  19. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    Perhaps the only Robbe-Grillet film that could be called a "romp". This goofiest entry in the New Wave takes place in a realm where artists and their creations share the same reality, exploring the link between our world (where story ideas are born in bullshit spit-balling sessions) and the world of genre fantasy. A bit too self-satisfied at times, but also brain-tickling & a wicked satire of James Bond's 60s.

  20. Weston Campbell's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    True-to-form french new-wave picture, too aloof to really work.

  21. El Biffo's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    The cinematography is fabulous, and the actors so great, that it doesn't even matter that the plot and dialogue are deliberately insipid. This is a perfect example of when I wish I could turn off the subtitles on MUBI. They are a distraction. The bondage scenes and sexy lingerie are a fun bonus. 4.5 stars.

  22. Corriel's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    An nice new wavish film with an interesting and original cinematography and a beautiful Marie-France Pisier. ♥

  23. mooniac's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    The story was very well constructed by Grillet but wasn't it too mechanical and even unemotional?

  24. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Trans-Europ-Express

    Proof that Robbe-Grillet could be Oulipo-hilarious as well as Nouveau Roman po-faced. On the evidence of this film he was no threat to Queneau in terms of richness and complexity of yucks, but T.E.E. is no less fun for that. Even after decades of self-referential cinema -- both experimental and less so, successful and much less so -- this madcap crime-caper delivers an effective metanarrative high, avec venom.
