92 minutes · 1969

Which translates (not well) as The Joy of Knowledge. Jean-Luc Godard's 1968 film was his first flat-out didactic effort, and decisively marked his break with the narrative tradition. Jean-Pierre Leaud (as "Emile Rousseau") and Juliet Berto (as "Patricia Lumumba") sit in a darkened room and discuss the corruption of language in capitalist society for 92 minutes. It's not easy going, but it does establish many concepts essential to an understanding of late Godard.
