Wondering why times are missing?

Weekend (1967)

Take a look in any film history book, and this 1967 film by French New Waver Jean-Luc Godard will be hailed as a hallmark of cinema. There's no arguing that Godard rewrote the laws of filmmaking with this anarchistic set-piece of a film. Still, it's not the easiest thing to sit through. A bougeois Paris couple takes a car trip into the country. Rapidly, their vacation descends into a nightmarish traffic jam of chaos, destruction and cannibalistic hippies. It's supposed to be one big apocalyptic metaphor for the rapid collapse of Western capitalist society. It made more sense back in the '60s, but is still one fucked-up head trip of a movie. 105 minutes
