Reviews - What do customers think about For Ever Godard?
An excellent collection of original essays Jul 5, 2006
This is a pretty amazing collection of new writings on Godard. I've read pretty much every book on Godard, but nothing matches the depth and breadth of For Ever Godard. While there are many great studies of the nouvelle vague films, there are very few that cover his later films. Until now. Additionally, the topics are original and interesting: Godard as an experimental multimedia artist, the importance of voice and music, the influence of Benjamin and Blanchot, new aspects of production and representation, and many more. My personal favorite is called, "The Written Screen" on Godard's creative use of text and intertitles.
If you're interested in Godard, you'll enjoy this book. There's something here to engage even the most well read Godard connoisseur. Buy without hesitation.
