Jean-Luc Godard captured the world’s attention with this stunning New Wave masterpiece, featuring a level of energy and excitement that he would rarely recoup in his career. and ex-patriate American actress  became ageless icons playing a small-time grifter and a newspaper seller, respectively, who become friends on the streets of Paris and trail around together in a series of accidental adventures. The black-and-white photography is still crisp and evocative, the dialogue and camera angles still exciting and new. Do not pass up the opportunity to watch this pioneering film by a master director.
