With its lack of polish, surplus of attitude, crackling personalities of rising stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg, and anything-goes crime narrative, Jean-Luc Godard's debut fashioned a simultaneous homage to and critique of American film genres. Jazzy, free-form, and sexy, Breathless helped launch the French new wave and ensured cinema would never be the same.
Jean-Luc Godard's subversive foray into commercial filmmaking is a star-studded Cinemascope epic. Contempt stars Michel Piccoli as a screenwriter torn between the demands of a proud European director (Fritz Lang), a crude and arrogant American producer (Jack Palance), and his disillusioned wife, Camille (Brigitte Bardot) as he attempts to doctor the script for a new film version of The Odyssey.
Band of Outsiders
Two restless young men (Sami Frey and Claude Brasseur) enlist the object of their desire (Anna Karina) to help them commit a robbery--in her own home. French New Wave pioneer Jean-Luc Godard takes to the streets of Paris to re-imagine the gangster genre, spinning an audacious yarn that's at once sentimental and insouciant, romantic and melancholy.
