A scintillatingly deconstructed filmic essay that’s as lyrically persuasive as it is visually and sonically fractured, Film Socialisme might be Godard’s most rigorous and thorough reinvention of cinema yet. Opening on a cruise ship in the middle of the Mediterranean sea , the film unfolds elegantly into a global tryptic whose second panel shows us a family-run garage in France, and whose final segment explodes across a half-dozen historical Mediterranean nexus points. A humanist critique of how culture and commerce intersect and collide across international borders, Film Socialismes kaleidoscopically color-saturated screen overflows with life – spies, would-be-presidents, ornery children, Patti Smith(!), immigrants, and even a llama help make up the film’s populist panorama. The soundscape is an even more densely populated, intricately edited polyglot maze of overlapping languages and ambient recordings. For all its fractured experimentation, Film Socialisme is nearly seamless — it doesn’t so much shatter cinematic conventions as melt them. Our screenings of Film Socialisme are presented with FULL English subtitles (for the first time ever in the U.S.!), rather than previous international screenings’ “Navajo English” subtitles.

Masculin Feminin + Film Socialisme

The latest film from Godard + a 60s classic!

Masculin Feminin – 7:45pm
Ever-adorable yé-yé girl Chantal Goya befittingly plays pop star Madeleine, adjusting to her newfound fame while torn between relationships with a teenage subversive (Jean-Pierre Leaud, of Truffaut’s “Antoine Doniel” cycle) and her two flirtatious roommates (Marlene Jobert and Catherine-Isabelle Duport). Using the talents of documentary/newsreel cinematographer Willy Kurant, Godard sets Masculin Feminin considerably apart from the other films in his ouevre it comes between with a stripped-down, more voyeuristically patient approach, mainly focusing on extensively improvised interrogations between its characters. Featuring a lush cast of young non-actors (with the exception of Leaud) who carry each sequence with the kind of grace and mod coolness reserved only for the French, as well as a remarkable score of playful pop and rich musical numbers, this absorbing portrait of “The Children of Marx and Coca-Cola” is a revolutionary masterpiece from start to finish.
Dir. Jean-Luc Godard, 1966, 35mm, 103 min.

Pierrot Le Fou + Film Socialisme

The latest film from Godard + a 60s classic!
filmsoc_pierrotlefou_newsite
1/25/2012 - 7:45PM

Pierrot Le Fou – 7:45pm
A profound turning point in Godard’s cinema, Pierrot Le Fou recalls the gangster cool of Breathless and Band of Outsiders, while also pointing towards the increasingly essayistic, apocalyptic visions of Two or Three Things I Know About Her and Weekend. This is Godard in full-on Pop Art mode, firing on all cylinders; cross-cut voice-overs, subjective tinting, high art/low art collage, jolting hairpin turns of plot, and delightful non-actors (or at least one elderly Lebanese ex-princess) all punctuate Raoul Coutard’s gorgeous widescreen cinematography. Anna Karina is as alluring here as she is scissor-wieldingly crazed; meanwhile, the more the unflappably cool Jean-Paul Belmondo tries to escape mid-’60s Paris, the more entangled he becomes in Godard’s girls-and-guns/drunk-on-the-movies madhouse of style and provocation — a stew so dense and exciting that fellow French director Chantal Akerman once said “I saw Pierrot Le Fou by chance — I decided to make movies the same night.”
Dir. Jean-Luc Godard, 1965, 35mm, 110 min.

Contempt + Film Socialisme

The latest from Godard + a 60s classic!
filmsoc_contempt_newsite
1/24/2012 - 7:45PM

Contempt – 7:45pm
Filmed in glorious, panoramic Technicolor on location in gorgeous coastal Italy, and starring the iconic Brigitte Bardot(!) as the wife of a screenwriter alongside Fritz Lang(!!) as Fritz Lang(!!!) directing an adaptation of Homer’s “Odyssey,” Contempt shows that when Godard goes big, he goes tres, tres big. Three years after he made his groundbreaking debut Breathless for mere pennies, Jean-Luc was able to shoot this subversive million-dollar meditation on moviemaking (and its marital consequences), bankrolled by two of the biggest producers in the industry. Managing to celebrate and subvert the language of mainstream filmmaking simultaneously, Contempt trades Godard’s trademark kineticism for a style that’s as solidly graceful as the Greek sculptures in Lang’s film-within-the-film. Part love story in reverse and part meditation on the commercialization of art, Contempt is one of the most aesthetically disciplined and visually distinct entries in Godard’s pantheon of films about films, and just might be the most poignant.

Vivre Sa Vie + Film Socialisme

The latest film from Godard + a 60s classic!
filmsoc_vivresavie_newsite
1/23/2012 - 7:45PM

Vivre Sa Vie (aka My Life To Live) – 7:45pm
One of Godard’s saddest and most influential films, the masterpiece Vivre Sa Vie streamlines the director’s defiant aesthetic into the sharpest crystalline vision out of all his earliest efforts — and also acts as a microscope under which his emotions toward wife/frequent collaborator Anna Karina can be viewed through highly engaging formal rigor. The film eavesdrops the viewer into the vicinity of Karina’s bob-coifed “Nana”, a young, beautiful Parisian who dreams of becoming an actress, and, in a series of increasingly heartbreaking tableaux, falls into casual prostitution to makes ends meet. Though Godard tackles the heavy-duty thesis of the sexual alienation of women with aplomb, Vivre Sa Vie’s greatest heights occur in its brief narrative asides: Nana’s late night, tear-stained spiritual with Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc, her existential café debate with philosopher Brice Parain, and her seductive-yet-sad jukebox-accompanied stride around a grimy pool-hall — a moment which forever cements Nana as the most haunting out of any Godard character creation.

A Woman Is A Woman + Film Socialisme

The latest film from Godard + a 60s classic!
filmsoc_womanisawoman_newsite
1/21/2012 - 7:30PM

A Woman Is A Woman – 7:30pm
Godard’s first in color and Cinemascope, A Woman Is A Woman is a bright, playful opera of opposition to the very end, with every moment a potential opportunity to burst into song and dance. In fact, the score is intrinsically linked to the characters’ melodic cadences, and their flippant, free-spirited actions. Youthfully veiling topics like politics, relationships, and the inherent challenges of love with care-free quips about correct pronunciation and book titles, characters casually break fourth walls, ride bicycles ’round dining room tables, and engage in highly competitive pose-offs. In her feature debut, Godard muse Anna Karina plays free-spirited beauty Angela, an impassioned striptease artist who yearns desperately for a child, tearing her between two men (Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean-Claude Brialy) engaged in lively competition for her affections. Every visual and aural element in this no-questions-asked, self-referential smoky dreamscape of conceptual editing and musical direction is lightheartedly collaged into a delectable New Wave melting pot of experimentation, producing one of the ultimate paradigm-shattering takes on the classical romantic comedy.

Breathless + Film Socialisme

filmsoc_breathless_newsite
1/20/2012 - 7:45PM

Breathless – 7:45pm
Godard once said that “all you need for a movie is a gun and a girl” — and that’s about all he had at his disposal when he changed the course of cinema with this raw, impossibly stylish and eternally youthful 1960 debut. The girl, of course, was alluring American actress Jean Seberg as a brainy romantic expat, and the gun was held by Jean-Paul Belmondo, oozing the absurdist cocky machismo of an art-school young turk in his role as a small time crook. Armed with a handheld camera and chaotic hand-scrawled script notes written the night before to maximize spontaneity, Godard attacked the streets of Paris guerilla-style, bottling the energy of the entire city on film before employing some of the boldest editing yet seen in film, to whittle a radiant pop art masterpiece out a B-movie crime story’s skeleton. Like its onscreen couple, Breathless itself is an eager and wildly entertaining Franco-American romance: a love letter to American cinema that’s all at once dizzying, conflicted, and eloquent.
