My American Uncle
Dir. Alain Resnais (1980). The last movie made by Alain Resnais before he jumped the shark and landed in the realm of terminal cuteness, My American Uncle (Mon Oncle Amerique) is newly topical in its evocation of mid-career job loss, constant its rumination on behavioral psychology, and amiably absurd in its use of lab rodents.
