I've decided to start a film journal - something to jot thoughts down onto and maybe a quote or two. My first entry rewritten here for your pleasure is from Godard's Pierrot le Fou.
>"In the end, the only thing of any interest is [sic] the paths people take. The tragic part is that even when they know where they're going and who they are, everything is still a mystery... And that mystery, forever unsolved, is life." -> a summation of Godard's work (?) or at least of Pierrot le Fou.
>completely irreverent. ridiculous!
>Godard would often ask himself what Hitchcock would do if he were stuck. In this case Hitchcock would say, "You're on your own pal."
>Anna Karina is incredibly charming/beautiful, even though she has funny teeth
Jean-Paul Belmondo is beyond cool
-> is this the only thing keeping me interested?
I think so
>pure definition of post-modernist art in film
>I hate Godard. I love Godard.
