Austin Film Society: Godard vs. Truffaut: Weekend

Godard envisions the end of civilization in Weekend, which is probably the French master's best and most inventive film. The film also champions the death of cinema, and was made as Godard's thinking veered into the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist analysis that shaped his next period of filmmaking. Yet, here, Godard still holds on to the narrative, barely, while still skewering bourgeois culture. The 10-minute tracking shot of an epic traffic jam is one of cinema's great set-pieces.
