Eric Rohmer – The Classicist

Eric Rohmer, one of the original French New Wave, died Monday at age…89. He is one of the giant figures in cinema, but one who I am almost totally unfamiliar with. I’ve seen many Godard, Resnais, Truffuat films…but somehow missed Rohmer. I’ve added many of his films now to my Netflix queue. There is an excellent article in today’s NY Times entitled:
Rohmer the Classicist, Calmly Dissecting Desire

that is an excellent (I think) summation of his work, and approach.
