Episode 467: Last Year at Marienbad (1961)

Guest Co-Hosts: Samm Deighan, Jim Vendiola

French Month continues with a look at Alain Renais's Last Year at Marienbad (1961). Based on a script by , the film tells the tale of three characters, M, A, and X, as they wander the halls and grounds of a vast hotel in Marienbad. What are their relationships? What are they doing in Marienbad? How does this film take apart everything that we think we know about narrative storytelling? We do absolutely nothing to answer those questions.

Samm Deighan and Jim Vendiola join Mike to discuss this challenging film.
