le gai savoir by jean luc godard : A FAKE REVIEW

    fake review:
    a film about film.

    anecdote :  i decided to pause the film at the very same moment someone said “the first image”. there, the first ever black and white photograph.

    above: a brief installation on the wall of my studio.

    the editing is playful, the dialogue is playful, the audio itself is often non-sequitur; a great mess wrapped around a central conversation godard has sought directly with the viewer free from the conceit of narrative. box blurb: le gai savoir continually breaks ‘the fourth wall’ like a motherfucker. a lynch pin to godard’s late 60′s freeform work; as essential as breathless if you hope to understand it.
