Lelouch's C'etait un Rendezvous Online, With Bonus Netnerd Features

Although it was released on DVD last year, C'etait un Rendezvous, Claude Lelouch's classic/notorious underground film, has turned up online. The film is a Ferrari-eye view of a flat-out race across Paris, shot in a single 9-minute take using a gyro-stabilized camera mounted on the car.

Now the web is filling up with stuff that should've been on that DVD. Folks have mapped out Lelouch's route [from Porte Dauphine to Sacre Coeur] and analyzed the car's average speed, landmark to landmark. I was discussing this with Alain Robbe-Grillet last night at dinner. [thunk. Sorry, did I just drop something?]

Find a download/streaming source at Jerry Kindall's C'etait un Rendezvous post
Here's one Googlemap of the route
Here's a breakdown of the average speeds from The Physics Factbook

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
