Posted Tuesday 25 Jun 2019

If you've been inspired by the masterful director Claire Denis, you'll be interested to learn which films inspired her. Le Cinema CLub calls Denis, "One of contemporary cinema's great iconoclasts, a restless formal experimenter whose work is marked by its sensuality, empathy, and acute psychological insight." From her debut, Chocolat (1988), to Beau travail (1999), 35 Shots of Rum (2008) and her most recent work, High Life (2019) her films remain "beguiling, daring reflections on genre, race, memory and emotion."
