LADY IN THE CAR WITH GLASSES AND A GUN REVIEWED
“The Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun” took nearly a third of the narrative to finally find a plot. The film slowly becomes everything I hate about modern French cinema. Yet, Freya Mavor does enough to keep me focused. I can see how this kind of story would be edgy in Europe, but it feels so passe in North America. The film is understated to the point of almost turning into Zabriskie Point. Mood, sensibility and atmosphere steals focus rather than leading the film create a world populated with realistic characters.
I think that it might have helped if I read the source novel. Referencing back to Antonioni, I can see that this film wanted to be a throwback. But, throwbacks usually have points. Where is the point in following a hot chick moping around on an attempted murder charge? Hopefully, nobody tries to adapt this for American audiences.
