Godard, Woody Allen and Me

By Film Department (New York)

The most literal elaboration of "Godard and me" took place in 1986, when Jean-Luc Godard asked me to act as the translator for his short film, now known as "Meeting Woody Allen." We already knew each other, as I had translated for Godard at the Telluride Film Festival and interviewed him for THE NEW YORK TIMES. He was aware that I taught his work at Yale as well as Columbia Universities, and was always kind with me.

Godard Cinephilia

By Film Department (New York)

Few things are more seductive onscreen than wholehearted enthusiasm convincingly portrayed. I suspect that the seductive pull that Godard’s early work exerts on cinephiles stems from the love of cinema the films portray so enthusiastically. From Breathless’ experiments in editing to the manic pop thrill of the colors and rhythms of Made in USA and 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her, the films of the early and mid-1960s bear abundant witness to a filmmaker so in love with the language of cinema that he effortlessly invents new ways to use it.

"This guy puts everything, I mean everything in his movies.”

By Film Department (New York)

I came to Godard a bit late. In Dallas, where I grew up in the 1960s, foreign films played regularly. But, to be honest, the local selection slanted more toward A Man and a Woman than to Masculine Feminine. My undergraduate professors of French preferred the humanist tradition of Renoir and Truffaut. But when I arrived at the University of Chicago for graduate school in the 1970s Godard seemed to be everywhere in discussions of cinema.

My First UFO (Unindentified Film Object)

By Film Department (New York)

To me, Jean Luc Godard existed as a symbol long before he every existed as a filmmaker. He wasn’t even a name but an idea that floated in some space inside my mind reserved for things I had yet to figure out how to qualify. I couldn’t connect the word with any images, or find any relation to it in my everyday life, but it kept hovering, like some unidentifiable mass; something about the three words refusing to be forgotten.

Jean-Luc Godard – An Art Object

By Film Department (New York)

Although I had met him a few times before I organized his 1992 MoMA retrospective, “Jean-Luc Godard Son+Image, 1974 to 1990”, an exhibition of his films and videos from “Ici d’Ailleurs” through the complete “Histories(s) du cinema” whose various chapters had premiered earlier at the museum, I was eager to spend time with Godard, a brilliant conversationalist, when he came to open his retrospective.

Godard Essay

By Film Department (New York)

After three short films and working steadily as a film critic, Godard literally burst onto the scene with his first feature film, Breathless. A friend who saw the film during its initial run in Paris told me that at one screening she attended a well-dressed gentleman rose from his seat during the film and shouted, “He can’t do that!” Full of jump-cuts, narrative ellipses and extraordinarily self-consciousness, Breathless took as the raw material for its art the cinema itself—it was in its essence a movie about movies, or more specifically movie watching.

Carrying Things

By Film Department (New York)

A lot of my memories of Godard’s films involve people carrying things. I remember my hero Holly Devaud dragging a cart of 16mm reels into our classroom sometime in the mid-eighties, excited to spring Breathless on a gaggle of unsuspecting seventeen year-olds. Or years later, just outside Osaka, me lugging a friend’s vcr across town in a shopping bag so I could copy the vhs of Nouvelle Vague I’d dug up at the video store. I’ve still got that tape.
