    It’s time for a revolution! Inaugurating New Wave icon Jean-Luc Godard’s overtly political cinema, La chinoise is both a prelude and prophecy of May ’68. In pop colors, this Molotov cocktail mixed raw Maoism, savage satire, and the romantic timelessness of Anne Wiazemsky and Jean-Pierre Léaud.

    Hail Mary

    Godard’s ’60s films are legend, but his career went far beyond the French New Wave. Roundly condemned by the Vatican for its risky retelling of the Virgin Mary’s story, this is a highlight of his under-rated ’80s period, as cinema’s great experimenter refused to soften his provocative edge.

    The Headless Woman
