I must admit that I am a bit up and down with the films of Louis Malle. Some I like very much and some leave me very cold.
His 1975 feature, BLACK MOON, is one of the most haunting films I have ever seen though. I couldn't even began to describe this very strange and hypnotic film. I can say that, after seeing it for the first time last year, that it stuck with me for days, like some sort of vivid dream that I just couldn't shake.
The film stars the lovely Cathryn Harrison, the fantastic Joe Dallesandro and features cinematography by the legendary Sven Nykvist.
The film is available on disc in Europe but outside of the occasional tv airing, it has never been released on home video in the US.
