BREATHLESS / BAND OF OUTSIDERS
BREATHLESS
A BOUT DE SOUFFLE
1960, Rialto Pictures, 90 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

Lip-stroking pug Jean-Paul Belmondo is on the run, shooting cops and stealing cars - and cash from the handbag of Herald Tribune-hawking girlfriend Jean Seberg - with the couple engaging in boudoir philosophy, staring contests, sous-blanket tussles and plenty of smoking. The start of Godard’s decade of supreme hipness and seemingly compulsive, often outrageous innovation. In French with English subtitles.


BAND OF OUTSIDERS
BANDE À PART
1964, Rialto Pictures, 97 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

French New Wave master Jean-Luc Godard told his backers he was delivering a sequel to BREATHLESS, but instead he created this offbeat meditation on politics, philosophy and the American gangster movie. Combining playful slapstick with sudden bursts of violence, this tale of three bumbling thieves (one of whom is played by Godard's then-wife and muse, Anna Karina) is one of the director's most original and entertaining works. Musical score by Michel Legrand. In French with English subtitles.
