Weekend
New 35mm print! Jean-Luc Godard, 1967
Tue, Jan 24, 2012 7 PM
Jean-Luc Godard’s scathing late-sixties satire is one of cinema’s great anarchic works.

The story focuses on a bickering bourgeois couple whose attempt at a country getaway turns into a hell-bound odyssey populated by cannibalistic guerrillas, uncontrollable fires, and massive automobile fatalities. Celebrated for its single take of an endless traffic jam, Weekend is a surreally funny and unnerving expression of social oblivion that ended the first phase of Godard’s career—and, according to the credits, cinema itself. (105 mins., 35mm)
