Jean-Luc Godard’s WEEKEND
August 10, 2017 @ 9:15 pm
“This apocalyptic farce-Alice in Wonderland as re-conceived by the Marquis de Sade-would mark both the high point and the end of Godard’s meteoric career as a popular artist.” – J. Hoberman, Village Voice
“As long as cinema like this exists, there’s no end in sight.” – Time Out
“A fliply comic scorched-earth rejection of the allure and gloss of modern life.” – The New Yorker
Roland Durand (Jean Yanne) and his wife Corinne (Mireille Darc) embark on a weekend getaway to the French countryside. Each is contemplating adultery as they head for the coast, but end up ensnared in a traffic jam along the way. Hilarity ensues in this absurdist romp as it devolves into all manners of human folly and destruction, and the fated couple encounters such colorful characters as the leader of the FLSO (Jean-Pierre Kalfon) and Saint-Just (Jean-Pierre Léaud).
Jean-Luc Godard. 1968. 105 min.
