Directed by Jean-Luc Godard

Starring Anna Karina

(1966) Trench-coated Anna Karina arrives in Atlantic City (apparently a provincial French town) to track down boyfriend Richard Widmark (a character, not the actor), only to find… And then the bodies start dropping, amid encounters with gangster M. Typhus, his nephew David Goodis (a character, not the Shoot the Piano Player author), Goodis’s singing Japanese girlfriend, and a reel-long Hegelian bar bull session. A (very) metaphorical treatment of the murders of JFK and Ben Barka… and Godard’s Karina swan song. With Marianne Faithfull and Jean-Pierre Léaud as Donald Siegel (the character, not the Dirty Harry director).  35mm. Approx. 85 mins.

Reviews

“Offers the cinema after Pierrot le fou what Finnegans Wake gave to the novel after Ulysses.”
