Film: Godard

Reading this review by Chris Petit of a book on Godard ( full of interesting facts about the man and film) of Richard Brody’s Everything is Cinema: The Working Life of Jean-Luc Godard is a reminder of how sometimes it is often better to stick to the art itself rather its creator.

After reading the review I had welling up within me a feeling that if  that was what he was like and  that was his attitude, then did I really want to watch or re-watch his films? Well of course I do.

the life and the work problem for novelists has been discussed in several of my posts, e.g. on V S Naipaul.
