Alain Resnais keeps sprouting marvelous artistic herbage at an age when most of his contemporaries are pushing up grass from a different perspective.
August 12, 2010
At age 88, Resnais hasn't lost his capacity to confound.
July 29, 2010
What can you say: The French sure know how to make pretty pictures.

Wild Grass might be the strangest film I've seen all year. Maybe all millennium. Is it any good? Quite frankly, I have no idea.
July 22, 2010
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...
July 15, 2010
At 88, the legendary French director Alain Resnais has earned the right to make whatever movie he wants, even a smug deconstructionist parlor game like Wild Grass. Thankfully, this doesn't require you to watch it.

Wild Grass is carefree and anarchic, takes bold risks, spins in unexpected directions.
July 9, 2010
Technically facile grope at dark romance.
July 9, 2010
Revered French director Alain Resnais, now nearing 90, proves he still has spring in his step with the irrationally provocative romantic comedy Wild Grass.
July 8, 2010
It exhausts its welcome after 10 minutes and keeps exhausting it for 90 more.
July 8, 2010
"After the cinema, nothing surprises us," the narrator intones, and this is perhaps the only idea that Resnais wishes to gently leave with us.
July 8, 2010
At first it isn't clear whether the film that unfolds is a thriller, romance, or mystery. As it happens, it is all of the above.
July 2, 2010
I guess we're supposed to think these two are made for each other but ultimately Georges and Marguerite are filmic conceits.
June 28, 2010
I found its high comedy very potent.
June 28, 2010
Too oblique, too arch.
June 25, 2010
Many will be transported by its gorgeous construction and breathless emotion. Others will find it patently ridiculous.
June 25, 2010
A tiresome whimsy.
June 25, 2010
Doesn't advance film language, but it does confirm its director as one of the giants of the art.
June 25, 2010
Wild Grass is a French movie for people afraid of French movies.
