    The film was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or in the main competition section at the Cannes Film Festivalwhere it won the Jury Prize. Free floating without an evident thesis, the film bounces between wide-ranging issues—war, the environment and the potential for revolution. The blending of film and video recalls the statement from Sauve Qui Peut, in which the tension between film and video evokes the struggle between Cain and Abel. He also, sordidly, suggests the weaponization of Jewish suffering in the creation of Israel, in a quick sequence featuring a woman wearing a compulsory wartime Star of David, superimposed with an image of hands holding a rifle high above her head, as if she herself were wielding it. In Breathless, his citations include a movie poster showing Humphrey Bogart —from The Harder They Fallhis last film [39] whose expression the lead actor Jean-Paul Belmondo tries reverently to imitate —visual quotations from films of Ingmar BergmanSamuel FullerFritz Langand others; and an onscreen dedication to Monogram Pictures[40] an American B-movie studio.

Disjointed and direct, exhilarating and soporific, cerebral and squirrelly: The Image Book is lots of contradictory things at once. His ontological enquiry into the image continues to be one of the most moving in history. He uses his own voice, reminiscent of those of Leonard Cohen or Bob Dylan in the twilights of their careers, to guide us through the fascinating labyrinth of his mind. Related Stories.

    In Notre musiqueGodard turned his focus to war, specifically, the war in Sarajevobut with attention to all war, including the American Civil Warthe war between the US and Native Americansand the Israeli—Palestinian conflict. InGodard directed Alphavillea futuristic blend of science fiction, film noirand satire. Cool Posts From Around the Web:. One of his earliest features, Le Petit Soldat, which dealt with the Algerian War of Independencewas notable for its attempt to present the complexity of the dispute rather than pursue any specific ideological agenda. There was, however, a distinct post-war climate shaped by various international conflicts such as the colonialism in North Africa and Southeast Asia. Still, if Godard lives in a bubble where he has never heard of the man who made Transformers: Age of Extinction, who am I to pop it?
