Some insight from actor Daniel Ludwig: “Godard is not to be spoken to directly”. But he does anyway.
Today, some links to Dr. Roland-Francois Lack’s The Cine-Tourist. Acknowledgement of the brilliant work on this site by Cinema=Godard=Cinema is long overdue.
“All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun” is a phrase long attributed to Godard. Lack’s excellent research teaches us otherwise.

Thanks to Sean Young for alerting me to Ted Fendt’s great new article continuing the criticism of Richard Brody’s Everything is Cinema: The Working Life of Jean-Luc Godard begun by Adrian Martin and Bill Krohn. Fendt provides an important contextualization (as well as a corrective to Brody’s misleading reading) of Adieu au TNS (1998).
