Infinite Pleasure: Todd Haynes on Max Ophuls’ Le Plaisir

Todd Haynes, whose FAR FROM HEAVEN tellingly referenced Ophuls’s THE RECKLESS MOMENT, provides a concise analysis of LE PLAISIR’s sexual politics and stylistic sophistication. Haynes discusses each of the three episodes of the film and offers shot-by-shot commentary on what he finds particularly striking.
