José Bénazéraf - Nuit la plus longue AKA Sexus (1964)



As we all often learn in life, it's the little, simple things that can have a big impact. Bénazéraf doesn't go for complexity here, and his plot is pretty simple for the most part. Yet Sexus does leave it's mark on the mind, and sometimes a director can communicate things without even realising it. With it's odd framing device, throbbing score and luminous imagery, Bénazéraf lets us in on his obsessions, and if you are in the right frame of mind, you can dive right in with him into the whirlpool. I look forward to covering more of his films in these pages. Though not quite in the realm of some of the more obvious Sinema covered here, the blood pumping under the filmic flesh would appear to be the same. It's a hip, jazzy feast for the senses, if you can track it down.
