Fucky Film Review!

Mon Oncle d’Amerique

Alain Resnais 1980

It’s a pretty original film. The director is very good at mixing media — splicing the main narrative thread with a talking head scientist going on about human behavior, metaphorical and abstract landscape cinematography, and life size rats walking into scenes with the actors. Some of the film’s philosophical probing comes at the expense of emotional depth and character development, but for the most part it walks the line and offers a captivating contemplation on the impact of sociology and behavioral psychology on our ideas about love.
