FRENCH REVOLUTIONARY: THE FILMS OF JEAN-LUC GODARD
Double Feature!
CONTEMPT / KING LEAR
CONTEMPT
LE MEPRIS
1963, Rialto Pictures, 103 min, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

The brilliantly vivid color palette is almost as ravishing as Brigitte Bardot in this masterpiece by Jean-Luc Godard. Bardot plays Camille, a woman whose marriage to her screenwriter husband comes to a swift, inevitable end over the course of a day on the Isle of Capri. With a score of aching beauty by Georges Delerue. In French with English subtitles.


KING LEAR
1987, Park Circus, 90 min, USA, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

Shakespeare’s tragedy serves as a jumping-off point for this strange deconstruction of film and storytelling. Noted theater director Peter Sellars stars as a descendant of the Bard of Avon working to restore his ancestor’s plays in a postapocalyptic world; he finds inspiration in gangster Don Learo (Burgess Meredith) and his daughter (Molly Ringwald). Norman Mailer and Woody Allen appear in bizarre cameos.


Screening format: DCP (CONTEMPT) and 35mm (KING LEAR)
