- (CÉLINE ET JULIE VONT EN BATEAU) 1974, Jacques Rivette, France, 193 min. With Juliet Berto, Dominique Labourier, Bulle Ogier "The experience of a lifetime...The most radical and delightful narrative film since CITIZEN KANE." —David Thomson, Biographical Dictionary of Cinema “There’s cinema, and then there’s CELINE AND JULIE GO BOATING...the ‘Ulysees’ of moving pictures.” —David Fear, Time Out New York Screening in a new 35mm print, Rivette's metafictional masterpiece is a dazzling jack-in-the-box of a movie that combines elements of “The Arabian Nights,” slapstick comedy, Hitchcock, Proust, AN AMERICAN IN PARIS, Henry James, “Alice in Wonderland,” and much more. Berto and Labourier give exuberant performances as two hyper-imaginative young women who meet, mingle personalities, and enter into a mysterious story-within-the-story set in a haunted "house of fiction." DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN, SLEEPWALK, and MULHOLLAND DR. are among the films influenced by this seminal work. In French with English subtitles. 35mm. (MR)
