My Dinner With Andre: The Criterion Collection

In Louis Malle's captivating and philosophical My Dinner With Andre, actor and playwright Wallace Shawn sits down with friend and theater director Andre Gregory at an Manhattan restaurant, and the two proceed into an alternately whimsical and despairing confessional on love, death, money, and all the superstition in between. Playing variations on their own New York-honed personas, Shawn and Gregory, who also wrote the screenplay, dive in with introspective, intellectual gusto, and Malle captures it all with a delicate, artful detachment. A fascinating freeze-frame of cosmopolitan culture, My Dinner With Andre remains a unique work in cinema history.
