Thank you for including my piece on Garrel in this forum. May I suggest that you also include Tony McKibbin's great articles on Garrel. They can be found on his website, tonymckibbin.com.

It was nice finding that my essay, "Colloidal Images: The Silent Films of Philippe Garrel," was included here while I was searching for information on the upcoming Garrel film today! I've had another essay on Garrel published concerning his rare 1968 film La concentration, which I saw at its only screening at the Lincoln Center in 2017 in 35mm. Here's the essay: http://www.flickchart.com/blog/philippe ... e-present/

Le Berceau de cristal was screened here in Stockholm this passed weekend. The nearly immaculate print, advertised as Garrels' own, was preceded by the most recent Cinémathèque Francaise logo - has this film received restoration recently? (Fighting against a swedish spell-check on an old iPad).

Apparently there is a blu-ray edition from Mexico of Amante por un día/Lover for a Day/L'Amant d'un jour. As far as I know this would be the fourth Garrel film on blu after the three blu-rays of his earlier films via Re:Voir.

Can anyone recommend a good place to start here? The extent of my Garrel knowledge begins and ends with the still used for the cover of Desertshore.

So much! L'enfant secret is one of his classic mid-career works; I think you'll get a good sense of whether you like his style from that (some of his more recent films have slightly more conventional narrative structures, but the poetic imagery + music + melancholic romance is all there!) My absolute favourite Garrel film is Regular Lovers, but that's a bit of an outlier in its historical focus – still, if you want to see a stone-cold masterpiece, that's it. Otherwise, I really liked Jealousy and Lover for a Day and, from his earlier, more experimental period, Le révélateur and La cicatrice intérieure are both a lot of fun (but each very, very different in style from his later work and from one another).

Thank you, fur. Regular Lovers has an Artificial Eye dvd (and I'll start there) but other than Jealousy, I'm not seeing anything else you mentioned. Some of his other 70s works are available though.

Re:voir has quite a few early films with English subtitles, including L'enfant secret and La cicatrice intérieure:

I just had a look for Lover for a Day, and sadly it looks like it's only out in a Spanish Blu-ray without English subtitles:

But it does appear to be available for streaming here: https://loverforaday.mubi.com/

Mon dieu!
According to The Salt of Tears, France’s own national moral dilemma is far simpler: getting your dick wet.

It's definitely a strange one. It starts magnificently, with an almost silent romance between two different people, each from a different heritage and social background (Luc is middle class, white and classically "French", while Djemila is working class, of color and from an immigrant family). It works beautifully as narratively the romance is all sparks, like a Linklater or Rohmer crossed with the quietude of Edward Yang or Tsai, with the social inquisitions firmly in the background. Sadly, the romance soon returns to classical late Garrel, with obvious cheating and a lot of anger and dissapointments. It's still interesting, but it turns the film to a study of male toxicity that's nothing you for Garrel.
Of course it is filled with only beautiful people of both sexes, so there's that. But if only it could have sustained that aching, touching first love in the beginning, we might have been talking about film of the year.

Lost it at "Claire Denis, whose work is riddled with problematic images of racial fetishism". Oh dear...

Does anyone have a copy of the DVD booklet for Zeitgeist's release of Regular Lovers featuring an essay by Kent Jones?
