"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 7000 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

Description: Michel Poiccard (Jean-Paul Belmondo) is a petty Parisian criminal who aspires to be Humphrey Bogart. After he steals a car and shoots a police officer his life starts to resemble the plots of American gangster films as he dodges cops and plans his escape from the law. His "girl" Patricia--an American student [Jean Seberg]--is torn between following Michel and staying in Paris. Her final decision leads to a fatal conclusion and one of the most memorable endings in cinema. Regarded as one of the best films of the French New Wave, "Breathless" launched the careers of director, Jean-Luc Godard, Belmondo, and Sebe ... (more)

"Watched: March 02, 2020. Director: Jean-Luc Godard Starring: Jean-Paul Belmondo as Michel Poiccard Jean Seberg as Patricia Franchini First of all, I'm not really a fan of Godard. I don't understand the appeal of most of his films. The dialogue is often hard to follow (and I speak french myself, can you imagine?). It was often the case in this film, and I often found myself thinking: "What's going on? Why are they talking about this? Did I miss something? He's still trying to convince her t"

Slant’s 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time (100 movies items)

"With its too-cool-for-school bevy of film and literary references, Jean-Luc Godard’s masterpiece both foresaw and helped to launch the now-dominant notion of pop-culture obsession as badge of honor. We may smile at Jean-Paul Belmondo’s rapt idolization of Humphrey Bogart, for instance, but it’s more knowing grin than disconnected smirk. Then there’s the ooh-la-la chic of Raoul Cotard’s black-and-white cinematography; the simmering yet self-aware dance of seduction enacted with such arc"

My favorite movies from all over the world (9 movies items)

"Original Title: 'À bout de souffle' Directed by: Jean-Luc Godard With: Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg Plot: A young car thief kills a policeman and tries to persuade a girl to hide in Italy with him. Note: It used to be a 5 star but and was probably my favorite but I watched it again and it dropped 1 spot because there were a few dull moments. But still it remains a great movie and one of my favorites. - check the list: My favorite French movies"
