John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection, dir. Julien Faraut, France 2018, 95 min., English
An impressionistic rumination on imperious tennis legend John McEnroe at the height of his career, compiled from reels of unseen 16mm archival footage.
Through acute analysis of McEnroe’s forceful persona and irrepressible drive, as well as broader reflections on sport, cinema and time, the film offers a unique portrait of an iconic figure.
