Godard’s “Goodbye to Language”

(Here’s where I try out being a pretentious film critic sort of guy.)

Godard pries apart the narrative to show you the discontinuities in reality. His camera and edits follow saccadic eye movements, decomposing the attention into it’s fleeting shifts of focus, somehow strung together by time. The sound overlaps the image, is sometimes totally independent, as it is in the internal soundscape.

It was a short movie.
