30 Day Film Challenge: Day 09

Day 09: A Film With Your Favorite Actor (Male)

The Mother and the Whore (Jean Eustache, 1973)

French New Wave icon Jean-Pierre Léaud has been my favorite actor for a couple years now and this is his greatest work. The film is sadly unavailable (legally) but it is well worth seeking out (illegally). The Mother and the Whore reveals a newfound depth from an actor we thought we all knew.
