Godard’s pre-’68 postmodern Pop Art spectacle dives deep into the poses and postures of Anne Wiazemsky, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Juliet Berto, and more as they form a Gallic Maoist cell on summer holiday. Wall-to-bright-red-wall with French rock, comic book effects, self-referential asides, aphorisms, and everything else under the sun, Godard’s revolutionary radical chic comedy—“a film in the making”—investigates the fine line between politics and performance art, and somehow seems more timely with each passing year. A Kino Lorber release.
