Godard's tribute to Eric Rohmer
Eric Rohmer (Maurice Scherer) was never my favorite film-maker, but I found this tribute to him by Jean-Luc Godard (brought to my attention via Ron Silliman's blog) rather touching.It's Godard's usual mixture, used to such great effect, of word, text, music and voice. And it's good know that even here, Godard is pretty much as incomprehensible as ever. Maybe that's one reason I like even his later work. Also, I only just realized- I don't know why it never to me before- that his first film, Breathless, is most clearly based on Joseph Lewis's Gun Crazy.
