Trans-Europ-Express (Alain Robbe-Grillet, 1966)

Wouldn't mind checking this one out.

This stylish, cult 1966 erotic thriller stars French new wave icons Jean-Louis Trintigant (Amour, The Conformist) and Marie-France Pisier (Stolen Kisses, Bed and Breakfast).

Trintignant plays a drug courier smuggling a stash of cocaine from Paris to Antwerp on the Trans-Europ-Express. Matters are complicated by surreal encounters with police, three filmmakers who are also on the train making a film about drug-traffickers and erotic-fantasy sequences featuring Pisier being bound and subjected to Trintignant's will.

Originally banned by the BBC for scenes of sexual sadism and bondage, Trans-Europ-Express was written and directed by ground-breaking and daring filmmaker Alain Robbe Grillet, best known for his experimental novels, and for writing Alain Resnais ,Last Year in Marienbad.

This is one of the first releases by the BFI in a series making many of Robbe-Grillet's films available in the UK for the first time and on Blu-ray for the first time worldwide.

Great news! Robbe-Grillet gets a chapter in IMMORAL TALES along with Rollin and Franco. I've only managed to see LA BELLE CAPTIVE, but on the basis of that, he's definitely operating on a similar level of creative derangement.
