My favorite is Masculin-Feminin. What's yours?

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...

JLG is my teacher.
I learnd culture,philosophy,politics in his films.
And my Best Godard Film is "Le petit soldat".
Perhaps,it's one of the most beutiful film in the cinema history.

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.
