Luc Moullet, original member of the French New Wave and long-time critic for Cahiers du Cinema, directed these distinctive documentaries that resonate with his absurdist view and maverick vision. Anatomy of a Relationship (1975, 79 mins.) is a delirious dissection of the dilemmas of two intellectuals who can't quite make their sex life work. Moullet stars as himself in this fearless confessional about his relationship with his wife. Genesis of a Meal (1978, 112 mins.) involves an economic comparison, from the production to consumption stage, of a can of Senegalese tuna, a French omelet, an Ecuadorian banana, and a reel of 35mm film--all staples in Moullet's diet. "A powerful non-comic documentary" (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader). In French with English subtitles.
