    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    Is anyone here an admirer of the work of French avant-garde director/screenwriter Jean-Luc Godard? If so, what are your favorites, if any, in particular?

    These are some of my favorites, and are worth checking out if you're unfamiliar with Godard's work....

    Weekend (1967)
    Alphaville (1965)
    Breathless (1960)

    Always heard of him, but don't know anything about him! I plan to watch his best movies as soon as possible, though. Maybe I'll ask my mom about him, because I think she's a fan...

    Since we are on the topic of french movies, has anyone seen 'Love Me if You Dare'? It's pretty cool, a french love movie. It's kind of like Amelie, but not as good, of course. It would be pretty fuckin hard to top Amelie, anyway.
  6. I did a film paper on the French New Wave and yep, Godard was one of the stars.

    My favourite of his is Breathless...though at uni we were forced to call it by it's French name A Bout De Souffle, due to the fact the shitty 1983 remake (starring Richard Gere!) goes by Breathless

    Godard is my favorite director, his movies - Pierrot le foe, A bout de souffle, Alphaville - are my favorite, they are genius.

    Jean-Luc Goddard once gave a lecture at the 'National Film Festival' on the South Bank in early 1969.He punched the Actor who was in 'The Fearless Vampire Slayers' Ian someone on the nose & walked off the stage &went home.(touchy man).
    His 1970 Films all seem to deal with 'Sex'.Sadly most of them are not out on DVD.[​IMG]
    'Week-End' is good & 'One plus one'.
