A new digital restoration of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s celebrated Le mystère Picasso features the famous artist in the act of painting for the camera. Clouzot, who built a reputation for suspenseful French thrillers like Le Corbeau (1943) and Le salaire de la peur (1953), invited his friend Pablo Picasso to explore the “mystery” of creation within a documentary format. The resulting film, interestingly, contains many cinematic tricks and surprises. (Henri-Georges Clouzot, 1956, subtitles, 78 minutes)
