Breathless

Jean-Luc Godard’s onscreen revolution may not seem as radical after 61 years of homages, imitations, and unwitting nth-generation takes, but one of its attractions will never fade. The director put two of the most charismatic actors to ever go in front of a camera—Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg, playing a petty Parisian hood and his American fancy, respectively—together before his lens and let them just be for the better part of a feature. The fascination, and charm, still lingers. -Lee Gardner
