My friend Sib wrote this guide in text message form — so I converted it into an easy to use file with letterboxd hypertext links.
For French new wave stuff, if you don’t like Godard, watch Éric Rohmer.
For surreal shit, Raúl Ruiz is god.
For cinema made purely on feeling, Philippe Garrel is the dude. Le Révélateur it’s his most experimental, maybe start with The Virgin’s Bed. L’Enfant secret and Elle a passé tant d’heures sous les sunlights… are my favs though. Pure dream cinema.
