Faustina

Catherine is a whirlwind. She is a black hole. She is wild and reckless and feels so authentic. She is not a great person, but she sure feels like a real one! She (apart from the style) is the most enjoyable part of this masterpiece of French New Wave.

Like a French Woody Allen movie, for better or worse. Well-made and well-acted, but ultimately kind of silly.

Now I know what Thelma and Louise was inspired by. A heartbreaking yet provocative piece of work.

Vivre sa vie

Lola
Jacques Demy's crystalline debut gave birth to the fictional universe in which so many of his characters would live, play, and love.

The Bakery Girl of Monceau
Simple, delicate, and jazzy, the first of the "Moral Tales" shows the stirrings of what would become the Eric Rohmer style: unfussy naturalistic shooting, ironic first-person voice-over, and the image of the "unknowable" woman. A law student (played by producer and future director Barbet Schroeder) with a roving eye and…
Breathless
There was before Breathless, and there was after Breathless. Jean-Luc Godard burst onto the film scene in 1960 with this jazzy, free-form, and sexy homage to the American film genres that inspired him as a writer for Cahiers du cinema. With its lack of polish, surplus of attitude, anything-goes crime…
Shoot the Piano Player

The Fire Within
After garnering international acclaim for such seminal crowd-pleasers as The Lovers and Zazie dans le metro, Louis Malle gave his fans a shock with THE FIRE WITHIN (Le feu follet), a penetrating study of individual and social inertia.

Weekend
This scathing late-sixties satire from Jean-Luc Godard is one of cinema's great anarchic works.

Umbrellas of Cherbourg
An angelically beautiful Catherine Deneuve was launched to stardom by this dazzling musical heart-tugger from Jacques Demy.
