Description

One of Jean-Luc Godard's most acclaimed films, his subversive foray into commercial filmmaking is a star-studded Cinemascope epic. Michel Piccoli stars as a screenwriter torn between the demands of a proud European director (played by legendary director Fritz Lang), a crude and arrogant American producer (Jack Palance), and his disillusioned wife, Camille (Brigitte Bardot) as he attempts to doctor the script for a new film version of THE ODYSSEY. Presented in a new 35mm print, this brilliant study of marital breakdown, artistic compromise, and the cinematic process is a must see experience. "They don't make them like this anymore. Point of fact, they never did; Godard's CONTEMPT is a once-a-century cultural constellation." - Nick Pinkerton, The Village Voice. Photograped in Rome and Capri by Raoul Coutard, music by Michel Legrand. (1963, 103 min, 'SCOPE, in English and French, Italian and German w/ English Subtitles)
