Une histoire d’eau (1961, François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 6, 2019

Une histoire d’eau has a sense of humor, which ought to do it some favors, but none of the humor connects. The short, which co-director Truffaut apparently intended to be a romance, is instead this rushed, peculiar… blathering would be the best word for it, I think. D’Eau is about college student read more

Charlotte and Her Lover (1960, Jean-Luc Godard)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 10, 2019

Somewhere around minute seven–of an unlucky thirteen–Charlotte and Her Lover's ending started to seem inevitable; predictability makes the last six minutes even more tiresome. Writer, director, and de facto lead Godard (he looped in the ranting monologue for onscreen lead Jean-Paul read more

Weekend (1967, Jean-Luc Godard)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 7, 2015

The best part of Weekend is Jean-Pierre Léaud singing his dialogue while in a phone booth. He then gets into a fight with leads Jean Yanne and Mireille Darc as they try to get a ride from him. Weekend is about the unreality of bourgeois life when it gets into the wild–in this case, the French read more

Every Man for Himself, Jean-Luc Godard, 1980

Criterion Blues Posted by Aaron West on Apr 4, 2015

Apr 4 Posted by aaronwest Back in my early days of cinephilia, I remember taking a survey film class. I had watched a couple of Godard titles by that point and was less than impressed.

To celebrate JLG’s 81st birthday, I’ve decided to make my Top of all his films. Since he is a living legend and one of the most influential directors of all time this list is a work in progress because I haven’t seen all his films. His final film; Film socialisme is the conclusion read more

Jean-Luc Godard: Audience detachment through narrative delay

Studies in Cinema Posted by Jeremy Carr on Feb 10, 2010

Should a film have a beginning, middle and end, it was once asked of Jean-Luc Godard. Yes, he famously responded, but not necessarily in that order (Sterritt, “Films” 20). Indeed, straying from formulaic narrative conventions has been a hallmark in the French filmmakers’ more than read more
