Hi Colin,

I have a small disagreement:

Does Godard really make polemic proclamations or does he acknowledge and contemplate them? In WEEKEND, for example, the Marxist revolutionaries bring about the apocalypse. I don't see how that can be considered didactic.

I feel that many people have the same problem with misogyny in Hitchcock and Von Trier films. To me their films are usually about misogyny rather than misogynistic films.

I don't quite know; that's why I have a complete Godard watch-through scheduled. For what it's worth, the label of didacticism doesn't get slapped on Weekend as often as it does his work from the seventies.

That's fair, but I always hear that his angry period went from 1967 to 1980, and I can never tell if they are including or excluding Weekend.

amazing man !!! rly !!!
