You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet! Reviews

July 12, 2013
What affects us most is Resnais's ingenious idea. And that affect is magnified by a surprise ending.
July 5, 2013
Resnais' occasional use of split-screen and other traditional special effects enhances the picture's various dualities, dreamy quality and decided staginess.

Despite some hyperbolic excess, the process of Resnais' production is unexpected and free, and revisits the very nature of cinema, and theater, with a wondrous eye.

There is something both mischievous and moving about a world-famous director who, closing on his 10th decade, designs a movie that celebrates his actors: their varying ages, their versatility, their heart.

"You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" is a sly, elegant meditation on the relationship between reality and artifice. But it is a thought-experiment driven above all by emotion.

Complex yet lighthearted, as diverting as it is meditative.

Equally inspired by comics and experimental fiction, Resnais makes movies that don't so much break filmmaking conventions as circumvent them; at 91 years old, he remains one of the world's most unpredictable filmmakers, and one of its most idiosyncratic.

What elevates the film is a pervasive, palpable sense of loss-between lover and beloved, young and old, stage and screen.

The title isn't meant to be taken as ironic: This is the work of a director very much capable of surprise.

It's, like, totally, like, "meta." Metaphorical, metaphysical. It's also pretty amusing.

Alain Resnais reflects on some lifelong themes, and though this drama is characteristically eerie, it also conveys a calm that's rare in his work.
September 24, 2012
Digital technology meets lyrical drama and classical myth in this puckishly daring, intricately original work of docu-theatre from the ninety-year-old director Alain Resnais.
May 23, 2012
Not since Altman went out with A Prairie Home Companion has a director fashioned such a natural swan song.
May 23, 2012
Though Resnais' gamble seems to have failed, it's encouraging to see a director on the brink of 90 still willing to experiment in a way most helmers half his age wouldn't dare.
May 23, 2012
Whether Resnais will complete another movie remains to be seen, but if this were by any chance to be his swansong, with its distant and resonant echoes of 'Hiroshima Mon Amour' (made 63 years earlier), it would certainly be a lovely one.

This reflection on the past, love and death through the prism of layers of theatrical endeavor is both serious and frisky, engaging on a refined level but frustratingly limited in its complexity and depth.
