About this product
- DescriptionI wanted this to be a narrative. So finally Jean-Luc went all the way: every line in the script a quotation from somewhere else. Every blessed line. Love doesn't die. It's people who die. Love just goes away. -from NOUVELLE VAGUE / New Wave (1990) Stephen Scobie celebrates the greatest film director of his age with poetry exploring 44 of Godard's films. Subtle yet profound unities play from poem to poem. Characters, locations, images, and the generous use of quotation jump-cut and recur to send the imagination reeling through the larger works of both artists. Readers will be seduced to linger within the writing and encouraged to seek beyond, to Godard's own oeuvre. The book is sharply envisioned and carefully cadenced so as to delight readers who may t be familiar with Godard's films. Those already acquainted with Godard's work will find At the limit of breath a most rewarding experience.
