Weekend ★★★½

"What a rotten film. All we meet are crazy people."

I may not love Goddard but I can't deny his sheer blunt power as a filmmaker. The formal breaks and conscious disruptive edits (along with that famous tracking shot) are a force to behold. I nearly always wish I feel more watching Goddard (even cold distance can procure a certain kind of emotional effect) but still, I can never truly disregard him either (aside from the normal historical reasons you can't)
