Resnais and writer Alain Robbe-Grillet’s mind-fuck of a motion picture was a huge crossover success back in the day—we’re told that you couldn’t go to a chic dinner party without somebody starting a conversation about what, exactly, happened at the end. Make all the “come-dressed-as-the-sick-soul-of-Europe parties” jokes you want; this collaboration between the Alains still holds up as a testament to style over narrative coherence.
