French director Alain Resnais has died. I had read about his work, but I didn't see any of his movies till I saw Last Year at Marienbad in a film class. The whole class found it confusing, even after a vigorous discussion. Then I took a class where we read translations of two novels by Alain Robbe-Grillet, The Voyeur and Jealousy. When I saw the movie again, I found it more digestible.
