9:16 pm - a pierrot le fou fanfic

La Mer
Pierrot le Fou;
322 words;
She closed her eyes, gently, savoring the picture, the angles of his lips, the languid smoke of his cigarette, dark islands in his eyes.

1:43 pm - The Nouvelle Vague Remembered: Focus on Charles Bitsch

To celebrate more or less the 50th anniversary, Senses of Cinema has an interesting retrospective on the French New Wave seen through a much lesser known contributor...

"When, in the light of a potential 50th anniversary tribute to the French New Wave, Sally Shafto proposed that we consider looking back at the movement, not from the perspective of a Jacques Rivette or Jean-Luc Godard, but rather through a focus on one of their collaborators, Charles Bitsch, we did not exactly ask, “Charles who?” His name was, of course, familiar to us. First, as a contributor to Cahiers du Cinéma in the 1950s and, second, for his sustained association with Godard throughout the ’60s. However, we were surprised at how much more was to be revealed."

"In speaking with Bitsch, my purpose was twofold. First: to have a better idea of the quotidian life of Bitsch and his friends. Second: to gain a greater insight into Godard’s approach as a filmmaker."

For those interested, read interview here

9:22 pm - Paris Trip

so I'm going to Paris this summer and I want to plan the ultimate new wave experience, unfortunately since this will be my first visit to paris I'm not sure where to go to achieve this. So far I have La Cinemateque Francaise (includes the Henri Langlois cinema museum) and trying to do the Band a part thing of going through the Louvre really fast.

What else is there? I'm trying to figure out where the overpass is that they run through in Jules et Jim and I don't know where else to go.

Suggestions please.

11:56 pm - Paris Nous Appartient and First New Wave Experience

Has anyone seen Jacques Rivette's Paris Nous Appartient? I've been trying to track it down for a long time because I have read a lot about it being one of the seminal new wave films, but as far as I know there is no DVD in print (at least no region 1 DVD) and I don't know how else I am ever going to see it. I've been hoping criterion will put one out soon, or maybe I'll be lucky and the Brattle (in Cambridge) will have a screening of it, but neither of those seem likely right now.

Also Just a random question:

What was the first French New Wave film you saw?

for me it was Masculin Feminin, i blind bought the criterion edition based on a suggestion by a friend that I would like the French New Wave, and I have never looked back. Those gunshot sounds he uses in that movie are so amazing, and it's just a crazy film in general. I'm glad that was my first introduction to the Nouvelle Vague in a way, but it isn't really that representative, I wonder what I would have thought if I had seen Breathless first, or maybe something not so great like Tout Va Bien, which is cool, but definitely not Godard's best by any means.

7:12 am - Une femme est une femme...

I posted this on Youtube. This scene breaks my heart,
but then when Alfred (Belmondo) goes outside hitting his head against the wall...
it just cracks me up.

edgy_uncool I may well be asking something too obvious, yet I couldn't find French (and esp new wave) film scripts anywhere on the net, could anyone please share some invaluable links? (It would be ideal if they were in French)

8:42 pm - "Masculin Feminin"

I just saw "Masculin Feminin" for the first time this week. Although I thought that the film was beautifully shot, overall, the film made me feel a little uncomfortable due to its portrayal of women. It seemed to insinuate that women are shallow, self-absorbed, and unconcerned with worldly affairs. Is this pretty typical of his work? I've only seen two other Godard films (Weekend and Pierrot le Fou) and didn't really get that vibe from them.

i'm thinking of having a little film-fest for a friend of mine next time he comes to visit. he's not very familiar w/ the french new wave at all but he likes obscure films from the 60s and old james bond movies. lol. i know that he would love bande a part. so, i was wondering you'd help me pick out a few more good ones to narrow this down a bit... i'm really indecisive. if you had to choose three other films to show someone to get them hooked which would you choose?

(sorry if similar questions have been asked recently)
