Slaughterhouse-Five

Kurt Vonnegut’s quirky sci-fi novels didn’t always adapt well to film, but George Roy Hill’s 1972 effort is a faithful winner. The filmmaking craft used to ‘unstick’ Billy Pilgrim in time is nothing short of brilliant, highlighting the camera talent of Miroslav Ondricek and the editing skill of Dede Allen. The book even has a built-in sex angle that the film doesn’t shy away from — providing our first encounter with Valerie Perrine as a starlet kidnapped by aliens curious about human mating habits. The somber, sometimes spiritually-defeatist tone of the show represents the book well; it ought to be better known.

Je t'aime je t'aime Returns to the Big Screen at Film Forum
It is a tragedy of human existence to be helplessly aware of time's passing, and to lose time during the act of longing for it. Something in this is also funny. For over 60 years Alain Resnais has made sharp and sweet tragicomedies about our relationship to time, including his new Life of Riley and 1968's long-unavailable Je t'aime je t'aime, which screens at Film Forum in a new 35mm print.
