La tête contre les murs [1959]

02Mar12 – 4 – La tête contre les murs (Georges Franju: 1959)

LA TÊTE CONTRE LES MURS (1959) is the film for you if you’re a Georges Franjou or Anouk Aimée or even Charles Aznavour completist, or if you’re still on the fence over how to treat the mentally ill (lock ’em up and throw away the key vs love them, understand them, befriend them into wellness) and have a hankering for hopelessly contrived arguments. One thing that can be said for the film is that Franju (or his cinematographer, anyway) sure knows how to shoot outdoor scenes in dim light; some shots in the film are stunning. 4/10. [3/2/12]
