“Le révélateur” on YouTube

Not sure what you’ve got going on today vis-à-vis traveling (I’m expecting a good long snow delay for myself), but if you have a free hour, I implore you to watch Philippe Garrel’s “Le révélateur” (1968), which can now be viewed in not-so-bad quality on YouTube. I’d like to write much more about Garrel in 2010; “Le révélateur” is an utterly gorgeous illustration of Jean Cocteau’s claim that cinema “is a first-class vehicle of ideas and of poetry that can take the viewer into realms that previously only sleep and dreams had led him to.” The DVD of Garrel’s most recent film, “The Frontier of Dawn,” will be released on January 26th.
