Yes,I understand Histoires du Cinema is excellent,was wondering whether to include it but haven't seen it.Will do so a.s.a.p.I didn't like Eloge de l'Amour at all,either, but was trying to be objective and had the impression it was considered by many a significant return to form.A Belgian woman at our film society was telling me how much she enjoyed it the other day;i had to admit i wasn't at all enamoured-which she attributed to British taste.(usually we tend to agree,though)

I think some Dziga Vertov group films need to be in here. Or perhaps this part of his career constitutes such a radical break that it would need to be sideboarded. In any case, I'm quite fond of Letter to Jane. Not so much so Wind from the East. As for others, haven't seen them. I'm both slack and fickle.

mmmm!

I like Breathless one of my favourite films, Belmondo and Seberg are trully magnificent and the shots in Paris are breathtaking! the script is also awesome!

Eloge de l'Ammour was a hard film to watch but very rewarding for me and I am glad I saw it!

The Silken Skin with Francois d'Orleac as a hostess having an affair with a married man was also a very modern film, worth to have a look

Le Mepris, just the cast and the mediterranean colours are trully magnificenet, you feel like the Mediterranean sea is literally in front of you! and Fritz Lang, and how sexy is Bardot! and Jack Palance....and Ulisses!

I haven't seen Pierrot Le Fou yet John but I am dying to see it!

Just a note: "The Silken Skin", or "The Soft Skin" which I guess you mean, is a Truffaut film. Still good though.

Breathless, Pierrot le Fou, and Contempt are definitely my top 3, although I have a tough time picking a favorite. After that...

4. Band of Outsiders
5. My Life to Live
6. Le Petit Soldat
7. Week End
8. Alphaville

...and I've only seen 8, so I can't really rank beyond that.

Weekend and Hail Mary are the only two Goddard films I've seen, both were very good.
