The Trailer Project with Alexander Miller #40: Olivier Assayas’ Irma Vep (1996)
Back to the world of Assayas! The French auteur breaks the meta barrier with righteous aplomb in his singular and wonderful Irma Vep. One of the best explorations of the creative pursuit committed to film. More to come!
The Trailer Project devoted to the moving image, the trailers that promote the movies we all know and love and some other random movies that you might not know or care about. Here we also like to feature essay shorts, and music inspired videos using varied film footage. This week’s movie is Olivier Asssayas’ Irma Vep.
