Made in USA (France, 1966)

It’s good to catch a previously unseen mid-late ’60s Godard. This was made in a few weeks and the uninitiated may say you can tell cos the narratives a mess. However, though it may be a mess due to its hasty conception, it fits comfortably within the Godard oeurvre. It looks terrific (shot by Coutard) with its red, white & blue mise en scene and Anna Karina. The scene in the bar, where language is deconstructed by a worker, is great.
