"There's no need to lie. It's like poker. The truth is best. The others still think you're bluffing, so you win."

Even several decades after its initial release, French director Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless is still considered a defining, influential classic drama. Every few decades, a film emerges that presents a breakthrough in filmmaking. In the case of Breathless, the technical ... read more

By now, I have seen almost 5000 movies. Among those, there are a few movies which I consider milestones in my movie watching history and this movie is definitely one of them. It is one of those movies which you keep hearing about and when you watch them, they basically hit you like a train. The first time I watched it, I must have been 15 or 16 years old, I thought it was just awesome and it becam... read more

I haven't yet seen any French New Wave films or any Godard films, so I was pretty eager to check this film out, the one that is considered the granddaddy of them all. I really do have mixed opinion, though. The technical side of the film was amazing: the directing, the acting, the editing, and, above all, the awesome script, but there was one huge thing that completely detracted from my experience... read more

Films I Should Re-Watch (14 movies items)

"Don't know why but I was pretty bored in several parts of the film, even though I did enjoy it overall. However, it did grow on me a lot and I've been pursuing more of Godard's films and I wasn't used to his style before so another watch is mandatory. "

“I haven't yet seen any French New Wave films or any Godard films, so I was pretty eager to check this film out, the one that is considered the granddaddy of them all. I really do have mixed opinion, though. The technical side of the film was amazing: the directing, the acting, the editing, and, above all, the awesome script, but there was one huge thing that completely detracted from my experience, and that was the fact that I don't think I understand French New Wave. It took me about 45 minutes to get used to the whole thing, but, even now I'm still unsure as to what the point of it - and this movie - was. Both seem rather aimless.

Like I said before, I don't really understand the point of this film. It was sort of style-over-substance, but it was still very well done. The stor” read more
