FRENCH REVOLUTIONARY: THE FILMS OF JEAN-LUC GODARD
Double Feature!
WEEKEND / LA CHINOISE
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.


LA CHINOISE
1967, Kino Lorber, 99 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

Philosophy student Anne Wiazemsky, actor Jean-Pierre Léaud and friends, crashing at an apartment lent to them for the summer, form a Maoist cell; and then ... Jean-Luc Godard’s tour de force of idealism, naivete and flat affect includes red accents in nearly every shot. "Amazing! Like a speed freak’s anticipatory vision of the political horrors to come!" – Pauline Kael. In French with English subtitles.
