HELLO GODARD, GOODBYE LANGUAGE
Double Feature!
PIERROT LE FOU / CONTEMPT

Before the Aero's special engagement of Godard's latest film GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE 3D begins January 23, we revisit some of the French auteur's 1960s classics.

PIERROT LE FOU
1965, Rialto Films, 110 min, France, Italy, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

Jean-Paul Belmondo, fed up with his wife and Paris, heads for the South of France with old flame Anna Karina, a classic pulp-fiction moll of a gang of crooks. Essential ’60s Godard, with sun-splashed color and CinemaScope photography by Raoul Coutard, a cameo by tough-guy director Sam Fuller and an explosive finale. "The most ravishing and romantic film ever made. ... The dazzling mise-en-scene alternates Lichtenstein with Cezanne, pop art with Impressionism, the shadow of Amerika falling across the Provençal sun." - Amy Taubin, Village Voice. In French with English subtitles.


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.


Screening format: 35mm (PIERROT LE FOU) and DCP (CONTEMPT)
