Lancelot du Lac; or, The Failure of Identification and Totality
This chapter reviews Bresson’s Lancelot du Lac, in which he remains concerned with the problem of revolution in the aftermath of its perceived failure. His turn to Arthurian legend in 1974 makes explicit the concerns of his late work. In Lancelot du Lac, color traces a process of social disintegration, describing the obstructions to collectivity at a moment in French life where every effort at unification is monitored and disrupted by a newly fortified state of surveillance. The film records the change and variety of human experience in an effort to understand pressures and problems of enacting a revolution in contemporary France.
