Breathless is in the top three films if not the most important films ever made by anyone. Godard would surpass the film in terms of craft and technique in the years soon after Breathless but with this one film Godard made something so influential, groundbreaking, and just plain watchable. Film makers and critics alike have discussed and will continue to discuss this film for decades to come. Many have said there was cinema before Breathless and after Breathless. I’ve been a Godard fan(I’ve seen all but 5 of his films) since I was 19 years old. If you could only watch 2 of his films I would say Vivre sa Vie and Breathless are the two you must see. I count myself as a cinephile who has seen countless films like Breathless but return to Breathless often to be amazed at how jaw-dropping original and fresh it remains.
