Duelle ★★★★

If other movies depict mystery, Duelle embodies it, inventing the Lynchian by standing actors and crew in a room like they're an enigma in a riddle. What could be more fantastic or uncanny than the ordinary, Juliet Berto unfurling incantations with her decisive hands. Rivette revisits the baffling locations of film noir, an aquarium, a botanical garden, a locker room, while women play dress up as an essential part of battling for their place in the world. Endlessly associative and open, making – like Anger's Puce Moment – the past, future, and present one.
