Pierrot le Fou

At this point in my life I’ve seen most of Jean-Luc Godards films and there is something to love in just about all of them, but I didn’t think that I’d be surprised yet again, but I was by Pierrot le fou. It takes the energy and joy of his A bout de souffle and adds brilliant, beautiful colour as well as a bigger budget and a more sophisticated array of equipment. The problem with Godard and a film like Pierrot le fou is that it makes it all look so casual, but with Godard directing and Raoul Coutard shooting, it’s a series of virtuoso shots that constantly seem to gleefully shout watch this!” Released in France in 1965 it lovingly alludes to all of Godard’s earlier films and combines his sense of humour with his politics and love of cinema together in an almost perfect balance.
