“Jean–Luc Godard not only reinvented the cinema; he also challenged film viewers to become engaged cinephiles, whether in terms of politics, theory, gender, or the history of film itself. Godard’s work is and has always been provocative, and that it has remained so since the beginnings of the New Wave attests to the magnitude of the director’s achievement. Tom Conley and T. Jefferson Kline have assembled a remarkable collection, representing a wide range of perspectives on Godard’s achievement. The book is a must–read for anyone who has ever been entranced or frustrated, fascinated or enraged with Godard’s cinematic imagination.”
Judith Mayne, Ohio State University
"In generating this superb and intellectually diverse collection of original essays, the editors have accomplished the crucial work of critics, which is to demonstrate the vast range and immense depth of a great artist’s work."
Ted Perry, Middlebury College
From the Back Cover
Enigmatic and visionary, pioneer of the French New Wave movement, Jean–Luc Godard remains one of the most influential filmmakers of the post–war era. A Companion to Jean–Luc Godard presents a compendium of original essays by top film scholars that focus on a wide range of issues relating to Godard’s illustrious cinematic career.
Featuring contributions from an international cast of major film theorists and critics, the majority of essays focus on several of the major films in Godard’s remarkably prolific film oeuvre – some 70 features in nearly 60 years. Other readings bring fresh insights into the great director’s biography, including reflections on his personal philosophy, politics, and connections to other critics and filmmakers. A Companion to Jean–Luc Godard offers invaluable insights into the life and works of one of the most important and influential filmmakers in the history of cinema.See all Product Description
