Richard Linklater Jean-Luc Godard

Boyhood, Richard Linklater's award-season heavyweight that looks most likely to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards come February, has been beaten in one of the final major awards hand-outs before the Globes and Oscars.

In fairness, Linklater's movie almost snatched the award, needing one more ballot in the first round of voting to secure it. In the end, it was beaten by Godard's movie 25-24.

Jean-Luc Godard Cannes Farewell: ‘Goodbye To Language 3D’ Is A Baffling Extravaganza


Jean-Luc Godard

Swiss-French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard despatched a film full of 3D images to the Cannes Film Festival this year in what many are perceiving to be a farewell to the festival from the 83 year-old, who did not attend the annual celebration. Critics seem to be having a hard time trying to decide what to make of Goodbye To Language ('Adieu Au Langage') described as a "70 minute cine-collage" by some and a film "full of moving paintings" by others.

Weekend Review


Excellent
Weekend is probably Jean-Luc Godard's most renowned, disturbing, and controversial film finally comes to DVD, where old school fans can rediscover it, and modern filmgoers can give it a spin and say, "What the hell!?"

The film is a broad indictment of consumerism, politics, and pretty much everything about humanity in general. In essence it's a story about a couple who try to take a weekend vacation in France, only to be stymied at every turn by traffic, revolutionaries, and ultimately murder in the woods. It's basically a comedy, inasmuch as any film in which a civil war erupts and people get eaten by each other can be considered comedy.

Pierrot Le Fou Review


Good
Perhaps the greatest entry into the theater of the absurd, Godard's Pierrot le fou starts out as ridiculous and gets progressively sillier. Jean-Paul Belmondo stars as a family man named Ferdinand, who up and quits his family man life to jet through France with a mobstress (Anna Karina), who inexplicably calls him Pierrot. Their adventure through strangely tinted sets and with occasional dialogue drawn from TV commercials. Totally bizarre and ultimately without much point -- Godard's message about commercialism is drowned in a sea of oddity.
