"Accompanied by a visual filmography, For Ever Godard is the indispensible compendium for film buffs and discerning observers of European cinema." --The Times Literary Supplement
"For Ever Godard will surely remain the standard work on Godard for years to come." --Arlis
For over 50 years now, Jean-Luc Godard's work in cinema and video has innovated, provoked and inspired. Since the completion in 1998 of Histoire(s) du cinema, Godard has featured strongly in debates about audiovisual art and culture, especially regarding questions of historical memory, technological change, and the future of cinema in all its forms. This historical moment provides the perfect opportunity for a critical reassessment and redefinition of Godard's entire corpus and its key role within contemporary culture. With 22 lavishly illustrated chapters, as well as a photo essay and visual filmography, "For Ever Godard" aims to do critical justice to the full sweep of Godard's artistic interests and preoccupations. The volume presents material by scholars and practitioners from film and media studies, art history, musicology, philosophy and aesthetics, museum studies, French studies, European history, cultural studies, and feminism and gender studies.As an important marker of current methodologies, research and practice across these different disciplinary areas, "For Ever Godard" is an invaluable resource and of major importance to current discourses and debates on cinema and visual culture.

My reason for the '2-star' score is the binding of the book which is so disappointing. I am careful with books, however even in my hands the book has started to fall apart within a week. There must be a problem with the glue used to construct the book, meaning that the spine will not flex but just fracture and as a result deconstruct itself! Interestingly (or not) a friend had a similar problem with a different 'Black-Dog' publication a while back. As others have advised, it may be worth hunting for a hardback version of this title. Such a shame, because I really like this book a great deal.
The reason for the 1 star rating is that my copy collapsed during the reading of the first essay! The binding of the paperback is just absolutely shocking and not fit for purpose. How the book was released with such bad glue and oddly bound chapters that also look like they will clearly split apart from their stitching I don't know.
I can only advise that you obtain a Turtleback Binding edition of this book!
