CLASSICS FROM THE COHEN FILM COLLECTION
Double Feature!
PIERROT LE FOU / HAIL MARY

The screening of HAIL MARY is part of our monthly series of treasures from the Cohen Film Collection.

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.


HAIL MARY
JE VOUS SALUE, MARIE
1985, Cohen Film, 107 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

This contemporary take on the Christian Nativity envisions Mary as a teen basketball player and Joseph as a dropout cabbie. Highly controversial on original release, this beautifully shot meditation on sexuality and divinity is one of Godard’s best films of the 1980s. With Juliette Binoche. “It’s my favorite foreign film since THE MOON IN THE GUTTER (the BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS of ‘art’ pictures).” – John Waters, Crackpot. In French with English subtitles.
