While next month will find “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” on nearly every available screen around the country, you might want to skip the lines and take in a cinematic experience with a picture that has been influencing the movies for far longer than The Force. Jean-Luc Godard‘s groundbreaking “Pierrot Le Fou” is marking its fiftieth anniversary with a brand new restoration, and today we have the exclusive trailer.
Starring the eternally cool Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina, the story follows two youths on the run through the south of France, with Godard’s movie mixing post-modern attitude, Pop art sensibilities, gorgeous visuals and improvised dialogue, and much more. It’s a true treasure that’s vital and refreshing today, and one that’s best experienced on the big screen.
“Pierrot Le Fou” will hit Film Forum from December 18 to 24. Watch below.
