Avant Garde Jean-Luc Godard

Jean-Luc Godard once attended a film symposium at which a fellow filmmaker (Georges Franju) remarked that "movies should have a beginning, a middle, and an end." "Yes," Godard interjected, "but not necessarily in that order."

[Godard's films were frequently criticized for being inaccessible, difficult to follow, self-indulgent, self-conscious, and too short on action. Though he made more than 100 films and directed France's most celebrated actors (from Depardieu to Brigitte Bardot), only one of Godard's films -- Breathless, his first feature -- was a financial and critical success.]

[According to Woody Allen, during the production of King Lear, Godard often showed up on the set wearing his pajamas.]
