So if you wanna talk about Goddard, do it here, if you wanna talk about Fellini use the other one…

Why is it that directors like Oliver Stone have so many replies, but one of the greatest directors of all time remainds un-touched?


#7

i started talking about this guy. Albundy didn’t even know who Godard was. Now thats fucking crazy.


#8

I saw Breathless a couple of weeks ago. I loved it. I mean Goddards inovative style of jump cuts and great dialouge really works. The story is top notch. Man I loved it. I need to watch Pierrot Le Fou.


#9

His most accesible film is probley Band of Outsiders. Though it’s a bit pricy being on the Criterion Collection it’s great.

I couldn’t stand Breathless. Sure the the cuts and camera movemtns are new and very innovative but i thought it was just plain boring. I mean i had no ider what they were talking about. I much rather prefer Francis Troffout who was also part of the French New Waven and made films such as Jules et Jim or The 400 Blows.

Jean Luc Godard tells the truth. Yes indeed!



When you are asked during the lecture whether lightweight digital cameras are going to save cinema you don’t respond.



I wanted to keep the scene short. But in any case I know nothing about it. What’s bad is that students think that because they’ve got a little camera, they can film something. The manufacturers, even the critics, say: ‘It’s great! Everyone can make cinema!’ No, not everyone can make cinema. Everyone can think they’re making cinema, or say, ‘I make cinema.’ But if you give someone a pencil it doesn’t mean they’re going to draw like Raphael or Rembrandt. If I’d said all that, however, it would have been too long for the scene.

Why the double DD’s in this topic? Is this ed, edd and eddy?


#15

Godard was part of the French New Wave which has greatly influenced Tarantino AND Wes Anderson…the sweeping, one-take shots. I love it. Breathless is fantastic.


#16

#17
