Story | Nov 19, 2012 | 1:55 PM“Weekend” is the last of the 15 features Jean-Luc Godard made in his first eight years as a director. (He made a similar number of shorts in the same period.) It was as though his brain was so intoxicated with the possibilities of cinema that he couldn't get his ideas onto the screen fast enough. “Weekend” is, like many of these works, a fractured narrative, and arguably the last to have anything resembling a story. Immediately thereafter, Godard spent several years making political film essays, most of which are much harder to approach.
