John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection

5 Feb 2019

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.
