MODEL SHOP (1969) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Anouk Aimée, Gary Lockwood, Alexandra Hay, Carole Cole, Severn Darden, Tom Fielding
Directed By:  Jacques Demy
Composed By:  Lou Adler

“Jacques Demy’s first American movie looks and sounds like a film made by a sensitive tourist…You aren’t likely to forget a movie in which someone speaks of the ‘Baroque geometry’ of Los Angeles. I know that I won’t.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times

In [Model Shop], Demy did more than revise his sense of style – he put his meticulous craft to the stringent test of documentary filmmaking and, in the process, revised the very idea of cinematic style…The movie is a virtual documentary about the city, a visual love poem to Demy’s new world.”
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Model Shop (1969) offers the great French filmmaker Jacques Demy’s take on America of the era, and specifically, on Los Angeles. Bringing his celebrated character, Lola (the divine Anouk Aimée, reiterating her eponymous role from Demy’s 1960 film), to the City of Angels, he introduces an American, George (Gary Lockwood, giving a sensitive performance): unemployed, broke, about to be drafted to Vietnam, and suddenly madly in love with Lola, a woman he has only briefly glimpsed. As George searches for his potential amour, Demy gives us a portrait of the city that captured his heart in the same, lightning-bolt way.
