• Dir: Jacques Tati

  • France/Italy, 1971, 97 minmins, DCP

  • Cast: Jacques Tati, Marcel Fraval, François Maisongrosse

Will Mr. Hulot ever make it to the auto show in Amsterdam, with his newly-designed, gagdetpacked camper that he’s delivering there personally from Paris? The epic traffic jam in Godard’s Weekend (1967) doesn’t look quite the same once you’ve seen the comic pile-up in Traffic. Tati’s take on motor culture is every bit as hilarious as Hulot’s previous outings, while boasting one of the loveliest moments of slow motion in the history of film: an antidote to our addiction to speed and modernity’s oppressive obsession over rapidity.
