Godard Does Himself

May 30 - Jun 03

Godard is on an almost 60 year exploration into the heart of cinema, and Contempt is his standard bearer of films about filmmaking.  At its heart it is a mystery, examining why a wife (Brigitte Bardot) suddenly falls out of love with her husband (Michel Piccoli).

In Contempt, his first (and last) big-budgeted film, Godard took the money from Carlo Ponti and Joseph Levine and delivered the goods (lush CinemaScope photography, exotic locations and requisite Bardot cheesecake) and then some. In fact, to call it simply a film about film or relationships is too facile: Contempt contains multitudes.

With Fritz Lang as the director of the film within the film (representing the argument for cinema as art), and Jack Palance as the crass producer (representing cinema as commerce).  The remarkable final shot has Godard himself as the Director of Photography, turning the camera to the audience, as if to ask: "which side are you on?"
