Pierrot le fou
Jean-Luc Godard, 1965
France | English and French with English subtitles | Format: 35mm | 110 minutes

Anna Karina and Jean-Paul Belmondo leave middle class life behind for a life on the run, out in the trees under the sun and the stars, by the wide blue sea. "The cinema is, as always, a director’s art," wrote Andrew Sarris, "and feelings are expressed through actors rather than by them, but the point is still to see what is felt rather than to figure out what is meant, and in this respect the bleary-eyed Belmondo undoubtedly looks the way Godard felt when Godard was making Pierrot le fou, and the resultant unity of features and feelings is beautiful to behold."
