The Films of Luc Moullet highlights
the work of an underrated French New Wave icon.
The Films of Luc Moullet pays tribute to a long unappreciated master of the French New Wave. Featuring one of Moullet’s classic films and a documentary about the filmmaker, the collection paints a complex portrait of Moullet as artist and subject.
In The Sieges of the Alcazar, a film critic - and Moullet stand-in - finds himself caught up in a cinematic plot of his own when he is tailed by a rival writer. The meta-comedy explores the French film scene through the eyes of two distinct generations.
In The Man of the Badlands, the camera is turned on Moullet by documentarian Gérard Courant in an engaging look at the director’s place in French New Wave history.
