JLG/JLG, autoportrait de décembre

Jean-Luc Godard France, 1994

msmichel's rating of the film JLG/JLG - Self-Portrait in December

On release Godard was about to turn 65 and this film amongst other works of the time found him ruminating on the 'closing of the book' and his legacy in French film. 20 years plus later Godard of course went on to more creative glory adding to his oeuvre with such masterful works as 'Goodbye to Language' and 'Film Socialisme'. Godard's place in film history is assured and this film stands as an interesting footnote.
