His later work is amazing aswell but is even more radical and difficult to get, specially because there is no narrative in him
And IMO Anna Karina>>>> Jean Seberg. Even with the beauty that Seberg is in Breathless
Yeah definitely. I'm going on a New Wave kick recently, I've got some films ready to watch in the next week actually. These are on my list along with most of Melville's work...
Two Or Three Things I Know About Her
Pierrot Le Fou
Vivre Sa Vie
I know there's tons more, but I'm trying to get the more well known stuff watched first, would you say that's a good selection? I went off of his top rated movies from Rotten Tomatoes, figured that'd be the easiest way to get started with his stuff.
And yeah, Karina was stunning too, but there was something about Seberg in breathless that really got me. Not to mention every time she looked directly into the camera it gave me chills. Almost like she was looking directly into your fucking soul lol.
