John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection

PG certificate
Dir: Julien Faraut. France, 2018. 95 mins.

Narrated by Mathieu Amalric, director Julien Faraut’s experimental film documents tennis legend John McEnroe’s performance at the 1984 French Open, when he was No.1 in the world. A beguiling and delightful film essay culled from hours of beautiful 16mm footage shot by Gil de Kermadec, this is a fascinating treatise on film, spectatorship and the meaning of perfection.
