WEEKEND
1967, Janus Films, 105 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

A portrait of society on the brink of collapse, this provocative black comedy from Jean-Luc Godard is among the director’s most rewarding films. An amoral couple (French TV stars Mireille Darc and Jean Yanne) drive to a country home to claim an inheritance, encountering radicals, cannibals, literary characters and endless traffic (in one of cinema’s great tracking shots). With Jean-Pierre Léaud. In French with English subtitles.
