Haven't seen very many of his films, since I'm not a fan. But A Bout du Souffle is still enjoyable. Godard's plaufulness, which grew a little arch and political in the worst way by the late 'sixties, is still fresh in 1959.

I've been asked this question many times in the past and I always respond with a resounding "Hmmmm..."
I always have a hard time picking favorites from the extensive Godard catalog of works. I always get a kick out of watching "Peirrot le Fou", but my favorite is still a tie between "Week End" and the ever-engaging popular favorite "Alphaville".

I'd say Breathless followed by A Band Of Outsiders. Alphaville was also good. Of course those are the only three I have seen hehe.

hmmm...Godard usually bugs me...I've seen a lot of his stuff, hoping it would be better than it usually is...I really liked "Weekend" and "Masculin/Feminin", but "Contempt" is the one that I always go back to...

In Sept on friday nights Turner Classic movies is apparently doing a tribute to the French New Wave. Off the Top of my head I know that they are showing at least 5 Godard films including the rarely seen Le Petit Soldat, & Les Carbinieurs. They are also showing Alphaville, Vivre sa Vie & A Woman is a Woman. They are also showing films by Charbrol, Resnais, Trouffaut & others. Check out Friday night on TCM in Sept. & you won't be disappointed.
