35 SHOTS OF RUM
The latest film by Claire Denis ( Beau Travail) examines four blue-collar workers who live in a suburban Paris high-rise. The director shows how people fail to connect with other people — even with those they live with, hold affection for, and see every day. Beautifully shot and edited, with a wise script,
35 Shots of Rum exudes a quiet confidence, embodied by lead actor Alex Descas. Not rated. 100 minutes. In French and German with subtitles The Screen, Santa Fe. (Robert Benziker) See review, Page 54.
