Two or Three Things I Know About Her (France, 1967)

How to film semiotics? This is Godard’s suggestion with Satre’s ‘being and nothingness’ lurking too. The film seems dated; that may be because this sort of didacticism is associated with the late ’60s. However, it’s critique of consumerism (women are prostituting themselves to pay for their lifestyle) is still relevant (do we now prostitute ourselves to credit card companies?).

Godard’s distinctive red-white-blue mise en scene is evident throughout and this captures the moment, just before May ’68, very well. (DVD, 2) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060304/
