Jean-Luc Godard (1930-), French/Swiss director

Forming Couples: Godard's Contempt
Leo Bersani and Ulysse Dutoit
Special Lecture Series 61 December 2003

  • ‘Perhaps more than those of any other director, the films of Jean-Luc Godard attract the attention of smart people who devote immense time and energy into figuring out what they mean... Certainly, Bersani and Dutoit are masters of this game and their recent essay represents something of a model exercise in this genre of criticism.’ — William S. Lewis, French Review 80.5, 2007, 1134-35
