Like Shoot the Piano Player, this felt like Godard trying to do a “new wave” style that he helped define (except I really dig Shoot the Piano Player, not so much this).
Love the widescreen compositions, blocking, camera movement, and performances… just feels comparatively slight and pandering. But damn — how iconic is Anna Karina’s first dance sequence at the club?! A star was born.
My least favorite 60s Godard (but still better than most things that exist).
