John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection

L'empire de la perfection

Réalisé par Julien Faraut
France, 2018
Documentaire, Sport


In the 80s, director Gil de Kermadec attempted to use film as means of analysing the game. His meticulously shot footage of John McEnroe matches during the French Open forms the starting point for an ironic look at the parallels between film and the sporting world: cinema lies, sport does not.

Statistics-driven godliness isn’t the sort of perfection that fascinates Mr. Faraut. His movie is a dream of Mr. McEnroe, an amusing, hypnotic, whimsical, expertly constructed adventure in craft.
