"A story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end . . . but not necessarily in that order."

"All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl."

"I pity the French Cinema because it has no money.
I pity the American Cinema because it has no ideas."

"Cinema is the most beautiful fraud in the world."

"Montage is, in effect, bringing out the soul under the spirit, the passion behind the intrigue, to make
the heart prevail over the intelligence by destroying the notion of space in favor of time."

"Our task is no longer to make political films, but to make films politically." – in April 1970

"All you need for a movie is a gun and a cat."

"There is no opposite of an idea. So an idea goes everywhere."

"Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality."

— Jean-Luc Godard

"Godard is about ideas, Melville is about style, and Truffaut is about people."
G.E. Nordell

Godard & The New Wave

"Breathless" ("Á Bout de Souffle")

Breathless 1960  One of the films that began the French 'Nouvelle Vague' [New Wave] movement, the story of a small-time crook who finds love (maybe) when his life is at its most dangerous point. This triumph of cinema noir reveals the truth behind our truths, thru the lives in the movie that are contaminated by American movies and avant garde posing. The viewer is left uncertain where truth may indeed exist. Directed by Jean-Luc Godard, written by Jean-Luc Godard & François Truffaut [1932-84]; starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg & Jean-Pierre Melville; Prix Méliès co-winner 1960
