    i can very simply sum up how i feel about this title one cannot possibly go wrong with the words straight from jean luc cinema godard s mouth made up of interviews with godard over the decades of his career, this book illuminates godard s various phases and his astounding ideas on cinema and art and life in general the man is an amazing artist, and if you are at all familiar with his films, you owe it to yourself to read some of what he has to say his insight into filmmaking and his personal output greatly increases any understanding of his cinematic works i recommend this book to any student of cinema, academic or just curious, or to anyone who has ever watched a godard film and still had many questions after the screen turned dark and of course, if you re a godard nut like myself, you should buy this right now and thank me later this is required reading for godard devotees.

    Along with GODARD ON GODARD, this book is a must have for any serious cinema affecionado The interviews with Jean Luc Godard are relevatory and thought provoking, and are essential to read alongside viewing his films It covers his work from his popular early mid sixties films through his video work in the eighties and back to his films of the nineties Highest recommendation.
