Thoughts on Breathless

-Jean-Paul Belmondo plays a Bogart-impersonating thief and, as the film opens, murderer, with Jean Seberg as his American wannabe-journalist girlfriend. Lengthy conversations about beauty and shit proceed.

-I shall maintain that none-Anna Karina Godard films are useless to me. Although it's always interesting to spot this fabled American accent in French.

Masterpiece. That ain't a hyperbole.

Conversations about shit? I need to rewatch this movie then.

I had to watch this in class a few years ago. It was good and all, and I get that the frenetically random editing and jumpiness was on purpose, but it gave me a hell of a headache afterwards

Franz: I'd expect nothing less.

Okinawa: Pourqoui?

Sugary: Yeah, I prefer his latter films, just because he seemed like he at least had a tripod.
