RIP Jean-Luc Godard

I fell in love with Godards’s work in film class, watching À Bout De Souffle. He was a pioneer of the French New Wave, a genre characterized by hand held cameras, jump cuts, long panoramic shots, on location shoots, close-ups etc… Giving the director more story telling control. As a francophile this is my favorite genre of film. I try to get as much in as possible. I recommend the aforementioned masterpiece and Vivre Sa Vie. Currently finishing Masculin Féminin (let’s see if this ends violently as well), with plans of watching all his work. Rest in peace you fucking icon and complete legend, thanks for the art and revolutionizing cinema. Omg I wish I could speak to Serge Becker about this. Which of his films is your favorite?
