Le mépris

Jean-Luc Godard France, 1963

Loki's rating of the film Contempt

A masterpiece. Ok, it's all about miscommunication, bad faith and selling out: not exactly the warmer topics of cinema. The way the movie was made directly addresses the problems the characters are having, hence, a masterpiece. Worth watching more than once. Motor, silenzio!
