Tag Archives: Jean Luc Godard

This is what I assume Jean-Luc Godard is like at all times.


The new Godard premiered in Cannes today.

I was not there. 😦

But here’s his amazing 4:06 trailer that condenses the entire film.

And here’s a new Godard interview (by Daniel Cohn-Bendit!) translated by Craig Keller that really puts Film Socialism in perspective.

Oh, and just for kicks:

“The legendary French film director Jean-Luc Godard, whose latest work, Film Socialisme, is showing at Cannes this week, has decided to run its subtitles in ‘Navajo English’ as in old Westerns where the Native Americans spoke in choppy phrases. Because the drama takes place on a cruise ship where no one speaks the same language, Godard has fashioned his subtitles concisely to say the least. If a character is saying “give me your watch”, the subtitle will read ‘You, me, watch.’ “

To consider on the last day of the decade.

Jean-Luc Godard is 79 today.

Happy birthday to my favorite artist, who has a new film (Socialisme) that will be out next year.

This weekend I met a Canadian Mountie that looked like Jacques Tati. So now I post this clip from one of the strangest Godards, his homage to Tati. This is how my mind works.
