Jean-Luc Godard never goes out of style. They’ve chosen this arresting image from his Le Mepris and emblazoned it on the Cannes Film Festival poster this year, featuring that amazing house on Capri where the climax takes place. I think I’ll be getting myself one of those for the office wall.
Anyway, JLG was the subject of a great retrospective at BFI Southbank just a month or so ago – I had a great afternoon and evening there getting slowly drunk with Godard’s muse Anna Karina, even getting to dance a vague approximation of the Madison with her, as featured in my latest giveaway: Bande A Part. Those august keepers of the cinematic flame at the BFI have offered us one pristine, remastered, shiny Blu-ray of this must-have film for you classy visitors to jasonsolomons.com. It really is a key text, a freewheeling ode, a masterpiece of cool, a cornerstone of nouvelle vague playfulness and a masterclass in the ancient art of smoking.
Under what title did they release the film in North America?
