Last Year At Marienbad (2008) Dir.: Alain Resnais; Giorgio Albertazzi, Delphine Seyrig. Not just a defining work of the French New Wave but one of the great, lasting mysteries of modern art, Alain Resnais' epochal visual poem has been puzzling appreciative viewers for decades. A surreal fever dream, or perhaps a nightmare, "Last Year at Marienbad" (L'année dernière à Marienbad), written by the radical master of the New Novel, Alain Robbe-Grillet, gorgeously fuses the past with the present in telling its ambiguous tale of a man and a woman who may or may not have met a year ago, perhaps at the very same cathedral-like, mirror-bedecked chateau they now find themselves wandering. Unforgettable in both its confounding details (gilded ceilings, diabolical parlor games, a loaded gun) and haunting scope, Resnais' investigation into the nature of memory is disturbing, romantic, and maybe even a ghost story. New, restored high-definition digital transfer, supervised and approved by Resnais. Extras: Audio interview with Resnais; new documentary on the making of "Last Year at Marienbad," featuring interviews with many of Resnais' collaborators; new video interview with film scholar Ginette Vincendeau on the history of the film and its many mysteries; two short documentaries by Resnais: "Toute la memoire du monde" (1956) and "Le chant du styrene" (1958); booklet featuring essays by critic Mark Polizzotti and film scholar François Thomas, and Alain Robbe-Grillet's introduction to the published screenplay and comments on the film.

My Dinner With Andre (2008) Dir.: Louis Malle; Wallace Shawn, Andre Gregory. In Louis Malle's captivating and philosophical "My Dinner with Andre," actor and playwright Wallace Shawn sits down with friend and theater director Andre Gregory at a Manhattan restaurant, and the two proceed into an alternately whimsical and despairing confessional on love, death, money, and all the superstition in between. New, restored high-definition digital transfer.
