a pierrot le fou fanfic [27 Oct 2011|09:13pm]

La Mer
Pierrot le Fou;
322 words;
She closed her eyes, gently, savoring the picture, the angles of his lips, the languid smoke of his cigarette, dark islands in his eyes.

Criterion Collection sale [20 Jul 2010|01:26am]


There is a sale on all of Barnes and Noble's Criterion Collection films. They are 50% off their list prices. I just purchased Breathless for $20.00 and there are a few other Godard's sprinkled in there. I believe Vivre Sa Vie is around the same price. And the rest are only $15.99. It's a really great deal. Here is the link if you're interested: 50% off

 the song is from Le Petit Soldat and is when karina is smoking a cigarette in a cafe and the dude is sitting with some blonde chick

the translation of the lyrics are:

my girls doesnt act like a starlet
doesnt wear sunglasses
she doesnt pose for magazines
she works in a factory outside of town

First off, I'm so excited this community exists!

Secondly, can anyone tell me the typeface Godard used for most of his films?

Here's an example from Masculin Feminin:

Thanks in advance.

Le Mépris soundtrack, anyone? [03 Jan 2008|03:04am]

I'm not sure if this is allowed, but if not, let me know and I will delete my post as soon as possible.

I recently just rediscovered Le Mépris and trying to find the soundtrack online has been extremely difficult to me. I really hate resorting to doing this, but if any of you could help me download this soundtrack I will be extremely grateful. I'm absolutely obsessed with the music from the movie and it's been all I've been thinking about for the last week or so.

Thanks for any help!

Oh, Jean-Luc! [06 Oct 2007|08:41pm]


When I think that I have found my favorite film, and a new one comes along, new for me anyway, and I'm blown away.  Oh, Godard, of course I love your À bout de soufflé, Bande à part, Masculin-Feminin, and Une femme est une femme.  It wasn't until last evening that I saw, for the first time, Tout va bien.  It is my new favorite film of all time, surpassing even Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris.  It's the most participatory thought provoking film I've seen in my life.  It raises questions about what constitutes a film?  What are the necessities of film?  Are there necessities?  It questions communication, and it communicates with the audience.  I seriously was blown away and wanted to watch it again immediately after I had finished it!  It's initiates so many questions, conversations.  If I was in a film society, it would be the first one I would suggest.  Oh, Godard!  How is it possible for me to fall even more in love with your work?  So political, and not usually my sort of fare at all, yet!!   See Tout va bien!!!  You don't understand how much I admire and respect this film.  It's such a catalyst for conversation and thought.

Have any of you ever noticed in Piazza New York Catcher by Belle and Sebastian how he says "Elope with me Miss Private and we'll sail around the world, I can be your Ferdinand and you my wayward girl". Godard reference? Perhaps.

Masculin Féminin Soundtrack [24 Mar 2007|03:32pm]


I feel like sharing since I don't post in this community so much.
Actually, this is my first post. :)

I was wondering if it was worth posting,
as I don't feel like uploading if only one person wants to grab it...
so if anyone wants it, comment!

I recommend it to everyone who likes yéyé...

I'm trying to brush up on my French, so I have acquired a Chantal Goya compilation..

Yes, it is her singing in "Masculin Feminin", she was a bona fide pop chanteuse. Ended up being most famous for her children's songs. She's very fun to learn french to as well, if you have a weakness for polished sixties girl groups every once in a while, as I do..
