Last Year at Marienbad remains the late Alain Resnais’s best-known work, elegantly epitomizing European art-house cinema of the 1960s. Decked out in stunning Chanel couture, Delphine Seyrig plays “A,” a mysterious woman vacationing at a baroque château. Realizing Alain Robbe-Grillet’s enigmatic screenplay, Resnais flashes forwards and backwards in time to produce a narrative never to be resolved. (93 mins., 35mm) The charming and beloved Il sorpasso is the ultimate Italian road movie. Starring the unlikely pair of Vittorio Gassman and Jean-Louis Trintignant, the film veers from slapstick to tragedy as the two travel by convertible from Rome to Tuscany discovering the pleasures (and consequences) of the good life. (105 mins., DCP)
