Alain Resnais has died. Here is the New York Times obituary: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/03/movies/alain-resnais-acclaimed-french-filmmaker-is-dead-at-91.html?smid=fb-share

 

And here's Richard Brody at his New Yorker blog

And Glenn Kenny has an interview with him here: http://somecamerunning.typepad.com/some_came_running/2014/03/alain-resnais-1922-2014.html

 

Not to annoy Ricardo Montalban fans, but if he gets a TCM tribute shouldn't Resnais get one?

Hardly likely. One of the most neglected of major directors on TCM. It looks like the only movies of his we've seen is Mon Oncle D'Amerique, Last Year at Marienbad, and the surpassing La Guerre est finie. But, incredibly, not Hiroshima, Mon Amour. If there is only one movie that will show up on TCM as a result of his death, I hope it is Je t'aime, e t'aime, the most achingly beautiful love story I've ever seen. It's not told conventionally, so I suppose it would not appeal to many. Still, it is magnificent.
