Episode 24: Beau Travail (1999)

On the outside, Claire Denis' Beau Travail (1999) is slathered with homoeroticism, which is exactly why the French Legion wasn't too happy that she made it.  However, it's really a film about alienation and one man's downward spiral into isolation, insanity, and tragedy.  (And, yes, I've just described every other French film prior to 2000 ever made.)

The film is currently available on DVD, and those of you who frequent speciality shops (or want to drop $30 for a copy of your own) may be able to find it.
