Almost immediately, they become entangled in a cataclysmic traffic jam, which is just he beginning of a journey fraught with violent and dangerous encounters: rape, murder, pillage and even cannibalism. Famed for its virtuoso cinematography - including a stunning ten-minute tracking shot - Godard's dystopian road movie is a ferocious attack on consumerism" -- Container

Le gai savoir by Jean-Luc Godard ( Visual )
11 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in French and English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Godard's film about language is a modern interpretation of Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Emile, a treatise on education in the style of a novel. The film is a colorful attack on the ways in which western society has poisoned its language by imbuing words with subtle meanings and built-in preconceptions which determine our actions. The filmmaker's protagonists are a young man and woman who meet in a television studio and conduct a dialogue illustrated by comic strips, interviews, street signs, outrageous printed puns and dozens of other devices. The film is a pure expression of cinema without conventional narrative plot, characters, and theme. (Does not circulate)
