PRÉNOM: CARMEN (iTunes) – About 10 minutes in, I was begging for it to be over; this is part of what makes it a real Jean-Luc Godard production in my books. I made it through my body attempting to reject the film, and it got better. Godard plays with audio, sometimes with birds or music playing in place of the dialogue. It’s almost as if what is said by the actors is the least important part of the film.
Kids today are scum! They haven’t invented cigarettes or blue-jeans. Nothing!
They invented unemployment.
Not really. They didn’t go looking for it.
