Jean-Luc Godard
Director, Breathless (1959)
Godard's directorial abilities seem to me to be rather flash-in-the-pan-ish. He lacks intellectual and artistic integrity. Breathless upholds, and promotes, the idea that theft, murder and amoral nihilism are legitimate reactions in contemporary society. Any society which abets such propaganda is doomed.
(Henry Hart, Films in Review)
A film in the veins of which runs not the healthy turbulent blood of anarchy but the thin, grey fluid of nihilism.
