Quickly: Earlier this year we mourned the passing of the great cinematographer William Lubtchansky, the backwards-looking eyes of the French New Wave in winter. I praised then, as I will at every opportunity, Lubtchansky’s sleek-gorgeous, grainy-intimate black-and-white work with Philippe Garrel, especially the trancelike, gorgeous post-’68 flashback Regular Lovers, a movie about a hopeful, charismatic generation turning inwards and disintegrating, shot through with heartbreaking glamour and very personal nostalgic reflection. It plays this very night at the 92Y Tribeca, as part of a weekend Lubtchansky tribute—put together by curator and L critic Miriam Bale—also featuring some woozy Rivette.
