L'amant d'un jour

Philippe Garrel Perancis, 2017

Jason's rating of the film Lover for a Day

Gestalt Therapy, Psychodrama. As a formalist, as a through-a-microscope analyst of the molecular emotional life of the organism, Garrel is a scientist but also something like 17th century haiku, though his very mindful direction of actors, interface with actors being the whole deal, is all about completely incongruous emotional truth-worlds, all of them one man's. Is Garrel our truest-bluest auteur of transference?
