Born Today in 1930: Jean-Luc Godard


Love him or hate him (and I mostly do both), Jean-Luc Godard was one of the most controversial and revolutionary directors of his time.  Made famous for his major success Breathless (1960), he went on to produce films of a literary nature which at the same time both criticized and praised American films.  He was also responsible for bringing my favorite actress to the screen, Anna Karina.  She starred in my favorite films of his, Alphaville and Pierrot le Fou (1965).
