John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection


JOHN MCENROE: IN THE REALM OF PERFECTION
Dir: Julian Faraut, 2018, France, 95 mins, Cert: tbc

Tue 25 June // 20:00
Tickets: £5 (full) / £4 (concession)

Written and directed by Julian Faraut and narrated by Mathieu Amalric, ‘In The Realm Of Perfection’ revisits the rich bounty of 16mm shot footage of the left-handed tennis star John McEnroe, at the time the world’s top-ranked player, as he competes in the French Open at Paris’s Roland Garros Stadium in 1984. Close-ups and slow motion sequences of McEnroe competing, as well as instances of his notorious temper tantrums, highlight a ”man who played on the edge of his senses.” Far from a traditional documentary, Faraut probes the archival film to unpack both McEnroe’s attention to the sport and the footage itself, creating a lively and immersive look at a driven athlete, a study on the sport of tennis and the human body and movement, and finally how these all intersect with cinema itself.
