I recently took the opportunity to see Roman Polanski’s The Tenant at the Gene Siskel Film Center. I left the theatre completely speachless (and for those that know me, that’s no small feat). For anyone that loves independent or avant-garde films, I would add this one to the list.
The Tenant reminded me at times of Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Delicatessen, another wonderful film. I would love to see a modern indie director, such as Darren Aronofsky, do a remake of The Tenant with a Delicatessen flare. I’m adding “create remake of The Tenant” to the list of things that I should do once I’m rid of these shackels that bind me to my computer.
