Weekend, Jean-Luc Godard (France, 1967)
Godard brilliantly and satirically depicts the horrors of bourgeois ideology in this, his most Buñuelian film; L’age d’or meets Road Warrior in the spectacle of Parisians fighting for their weekend leisure. Weekend is an explosion of images and ideas screeching toward a car wreck of a plot, along the way shattering all illusions of fiction or comfortable “art.” Here we see une femme mariée—Mireille Darc—romping through car-nage and forest in her Paris fashions.
