“Cinema is truth at 24 frames a second.” – Jean-Luc Godard
Cinema’s original enfant terrible, Jean-Luc Godard was one of the leaders of the French New Wave, a key influence on American cinema of the 1970s. A maverick force from the beginning, when his debut film tore up the cinematic rulebook, Godard continued to inspire and challenge moviegoers throughout a career that spans more than four decades. To honor his legacy, we present 7 of his films on the big screen. All films are in the French language with English subtitles.
A cockeyed fusion of science fiction, pulp characters, and surrealist poetry, Godard’s irreverent journey to the mysterious Alphaville remains one of the least conventional films of all time. Eddie Constantine stars as intergalactic hero Lemmy Caution, on a mission to kill the inventor of fascist computer Alpha 60.
