Irregular Film Club no.4

Posted in Film, irregular film club with tags , , , on July 3, 2008 by Lightborne

Next week will see the fourth installment of my irregular film club. We’re going to be watching Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain (I think its about time for a reappraisal) and Claude Lelouche’s C’etait un Rendezvous (which has to be seen to be believed).

The Irregular Film Club


Darren Aronofsky’s
The Fountain


Misunderstood genius or misjudged folly? You decide on:

Thursday 10 July

7.30 pm – Room 056

plus bonus feature:

Claude Lelouche’s infamous C’├ętait un rendez-vous (1976 – 9 mins)

The cult film that perversely survives mostly because of its whispered fame amongst petrol heads and car clubs. It is surrounded by myths (Lelouche’s arrest after the first screenings, the question of who drove the car, whether its really real or not, the communication failures that could have led to multiple deaths), that are overshadowed by the audacity, simplicity and insanity of the film itself.


Open to members and students of the University of Warwick Film & TV Studies Dept.
