L'Intrus (2004)

Handily beating me at my own attempt at focused discourse, Reverse Shot has just published a symposium on Claire Denis that covers her entire oeuvre and then some. Particularly exciting: Kevin B. Lee's video essay on that most impenetrable of her films, L'Intrus. Synthesizing the film's dialectics through a parallax of words and images, Lee and his collaborators have created an invaluable study guide for a film that's very much worth the cogitation it requires.

On a separate but perhaps equal note: Strand Releasing (they of the best studio logo ever) just put out the trailer for Lucretia Martel's Headless Woman, which I plan on catching in New York the weekend after next. Just enough time, given my lax viewing habits, to finally catch up with her first two films in the interim.
