French New Wave: “Breathless”
September 6, 2012 § Leave a comment
In a couple of week I will start a pretty intense period of shooting for a couple of different projects. (including something I am planning for all of you!) In preparation for the many hours that will be spent behind the camera I’ve begun my own French New Wave retrospective. Something in my gut seems to be pulling me in this direction. There is something here that I need before going forward, I just don’t know what that is yet.
I am starting, of course, with the quintessential French New Wave film Breathless (1959, dir. Jean-Luc Godard). Jules and Jim is probably next. (In case you were thinking of starting your own retrospective, this is an excellent guide on where to start.)
