This volume examines the films of Jean-Jacques Beineix, often seen as the best directorial example of the 1980s "cinema du look" with cult films, such as "Diva" and "Betty Blue (37 degrees le matin)". After an introduction which places Beineix in the context of the 1980s, the volume devotes a chapter to each of Beineix's feature films, including the work which marked his return to feature film making after the break of a decade, "Mortel Transfert" (2001). Beineix, the director and his films, have often been at the centre of controversy. This text explains these controversies, but atempts to keep at arms' length from them, and to analyze the films for their intrinsic interest.
