Synopsis:
Perhaps best known as the writer of Alain Resnais' classic cine-conundrum 'Last Year in Marienbad', and as a leading novelist in the nouveau roman movement, Alain Robbe-Grillet was the director of a number of playful, stylish and controversial films which starred such icons of French cinema as Jean-Louis Trintignant and Isabelle Huppert. Impossible to see for decades, these enigmatic, erotically charged films have now been collected together for the very first time.

The Man Who Lies (1968)
On the run from pursuing soldiers, a man hides in a small European town.
Successive Slidings of Pleasure (1974)
A young woman is questioned by the police and the judges, suspected of being a modern witch. The girl who shared her apartment has been found dead, and a pair of scissors impaled through her heart, as she lay attached to the bedposts. Apparently, the girl does have powers, to make all people around her fall prey to her spell, sliding progressively into desire, lust, and the unknown.

Apart from the lovely women... - The Man Who Lies / Successive Slidings of Pleasure review by CP

Spoiler Alert

... Unwatchable. Typical early 70s arthouse stuff, plotless, directionless and self-indulgent. Nice women, though.
