LE MÉPRIS (1963)

One of the stereotypical European Art Films from Jean-Luc Godard, but if I’m honest its not the cinematography many viewers are going to remember.

CLÉO DE 5 À 7 (1962)

The earliest big international hit of the great Agnés Varda follows a female singer on a nearly-real-time journey through the Left Bank of Paris as she waits on the results of a cancer test, but it’s actually about a lot of other things.


Francois Truffaut’s debut about his own wayward childhood still feels fresh today.
