I would change my header but all the snyder cut posters have gal gadot in them. got to show my support for my man the same way i have always (with dawn of the dead 04 poster)

@evan i would trust coutard to take camille's side

when you think about it, since Le Mepris is a film about itself as a film, and the drama of Le Mepris is about what the camera does, and the first shot introduces Coutard to us as the cameraman, Raoul Coutard is the main character of Le Mepris

its quite funny to me that some of the nouvelle vague guys tried to lean hard into the auteur thing, all the while they were all working on each others films and raoul coutard was shooting all the best ones (all complete coincidence im sure)

@evan i have!! its so brilliant. ive heard the score so many times and it still gives me chills. also "le nouveau film traditionnel de jean-luc godard" is hysterical. it saddens me how rare it has become for directors to cut their own trailers

Contempt is (just in terms of the literal plot) about three guys fighting over their visions for a movie and in a meta sense Pierrot is Godard fighting his own conceptions of what a movie is and what it can be. a purposeful expansion of and iteration on Breathless. both films share a cinematographer as well and they both have some of the most beautiful shots you will ever see.

Show thread

both very similar in the details of their endings too, with Contempt playing out as more of a tragedy and Pierrot as more of a comedy. a very, dare i say it, Jokerfied film.

Show thread

pierrot le fou especially, i could go on for hours talking about that one

Show thread

i kind of want to go off about godard's Le Mepris (Contempt) and Pierrot Le Fou. two of the best films of all time, and quite possibly the two best films of all time

Contempt: Best movie ever? Maybe. probably. best trailer ever? without a doubt

Just a beautiful ending I haven’t stopped thinking about since i saw it. that whole third part is just DARING you to get emotionally invested, actively pushing you away but at least for me it fully works

Show thread

been thinking about my top 10 movies ever since i mentioned it offhand. i think southland tales makes it on that list

Pirates 5 reversing will turner’s fate is the weakest shit on earth. undoes what is in my opinion one of the greatest film endings

Show thread

John Lithgow in All That Jazz is possibly the best supporting performance of all time. the scene in the restaurant is, like, top 5 funny
