PIERROT LE FOU
Thursday, May 12
Directed by Jean-Luc Godard
Starring Anna Karina and Jean-Paul Belmondo
(1965) “The last romantic couple,” as Jean-Paul Belmondo, fed up with wife and Paris, heads for the south of France with old flame Anna Karina, a classic pulp fiction moll of a gang of crooks. Echt 60s Godard, with sun-splashed color & Scope photography by Raoul Coutard, a cameo by tough guy director Sam Fuller, and an explosive finale. DCP. Approx 110 mins.
“The most ravishing and romantic film ever made…The dazzling mise-en-scène alternates Lichtenstein with Cézanne, pop art with impressionism, the shadow of Amerika falling across the Provençal sun.”
– Amy Taubin, Village Voice
