Pierrot le Fou and Post-New Wave French Cinema

This GoogleBook chapter is complete and could be classified as the complete guide to Godard’s Pierrot le Fou, for those who watch art house films but often don’t have the faintest idea what is going on. If you have a deep knowledge of all aspects of culture, you might watch this and understand it fully first time. I didn’t. I got something about it being a film as a cartoon, in which the characters in the film spent some of their time reading out the cartoon in which they were acting out. Plus a few other bits.

Here it’s explained in full, so you can now watch it a second, or is it third time, with greater understanding.
