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.

... a delightful reminder of the romantic streak and cinematic whimsy still in this 88-year-old cinema elder.

Director Alain Resnais? roundabout romance about missed connections and misplaced intentions is gorgeous to watch but difficult to track.

I recognize the Resnais I love in this movie, poking through here and there, a fumble-fingered god experimenting with his creation: a wobbly, lopsided world warmed by its maker's affection.

Alain Resnais keeps sprouting marvelous artistic herbage at an age when most of his contemporaries are pushing up grass from a different perspective.

Wild Grass is the vision of Alain Resnais. He suggests that anything can happen in movies. Or in our imaginations.

Resnais' funky, frothy bonbon of a film is nevertheless a breathtaking sight to see.

Camera movements, graphic matches, and strange tonal balances carry a lot of expressive weight in this story about chance encounters, creepy follow-ups, and abrupt changes of heart.

Resnais is as restlessly, impishly experimental as ever.

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

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

In new-wave icon Alain Resnais' chin-scratcher "Wild Grass," the grass is wild all right and apparently smokable.

Wild Grass wants to give us a lot of options and force us to figure things out for ourselves.
