“I never had any special appetite for filmmaking, but you have to make a living and it is miraculous to earn a living working in film. Luck, I never looked to make difficult movies on purpose. You make the films you can make and every film I’ve made has been an assignment.”
June 3, 1922 - March 1, 2014
I was just emailing with a friend last night, not knowing that Resnais had died, talking about his films. How sad. Although he’d lived a long, and a very creative and productive life, it’s always tough when we lose an artist of Resnais’ stature. The world is a better place for his having been in it.
RIP: Alain Resnais (1922-2014)
