Although Wild Grass doesn't reach the heights of Resnais' earliest works, it provides ample evidence that the director can still produce vibrant and thrilling work and hopefully will continue to do so through his 90s as well.

When a director of his pedigree and years brings so much life to the screen, inconsistency hardly seems to matter.

Every image is an artistic gem, and like a great expressionistic painter Resnais leaves nothing on the table as his vivid imagination runs gloriously wild.

Along with such fantasy elements as rich, primary colors and an ending that suggests we've jumped to some other cinematic dimension, Wild Grass, like compulsive filmmaking, embraces the intensity of subjective experience...

Parts of it are befuddling, but it's a privilege to be befuddled by a film that has been put together with this much insight and precision
