Jean-Luc Godard is turning 80 today. I wouldn’t be surprised if he turned out to be — in 50 or 100 years — the major late 20th century movie-maker. I’ve been slowly working my way into (can’t say ‘through’ yet) the monster (900+ pages) biography of Godard by Antoine de Baecque published earlier this year by Grasset. A formidable tome that I hope will eventually find a translator into English. Below, an interview with Godard from 1972. Many happy returns! Maybe for the occasion & my own pleasure I’ll re-watch Pierrot le Fou, my favorite Godard movie, tonight, for the nth minus 1 time. And well, below the interview, the trailer for that movie.
