    what films have you seen?

    I particularly like Godard's films, like Breathless. The French New Wave had an enormous impact on world cinema. Particularly the 60s new hollywood was influenced by the way these new french filmmakers made movies.

    My favorite is My Life To Live and the stuff he did for Six In Paris. I felt Band A Part got a little too convoluted towards the end. Alphaville is another great Goddard flick.

    :up: , saw it in a lecture a couple of weeks ago. The dance scene was the influence for Uma & John's dance scene in Pulp Fiction, Tarantino gave them the clip to watch. Its also why his production company is called Band Apart.

    The dance scene is definatly the high point of the movie. Goddard's use of narration in that film is a really good example of auter theory in action. The way he makes the movie read like a book is one of the reasons why Goddard is one of my favorite directors.

    BUMP

    Dammit people! This thread needs more posts. Would a question help? Okay, here: do you think the auteur theory has bettered filmmaking or hurt it?

    :up: . Great use of narration in Band Apart. Another great feature of this film is the moment of silence. What other film has allowed total silence for so long? Most times it used for slo-mo scenes but this was an ingenious use of silence.

    Anyone here seen Night and Fog by Resnais? I've been dying to see it, but I still haven't had the chance.

    Breathless is a really cool movie. I've also seen some slightly pre-New Wave stuff that was INCREDIBLY brilliant, like Elevator to the Gallows, with a score by Miles Davis. Great little film.
