    schema:reviewBody ""Jean-Luc Godard's early films revolutionised the language of cinema for everyone, from the Superbrats of Hollywood to the political film-makers of the Third World, and he remains today the most influential of film-makers. Drawing on his experience of working with Godard, Colin MacCabe has written the first biography of the reclusive director, sketching the portrait of a man determined to make cinema the greatest of the arts." "Hugely prolific in his first decade (Breathless, Contempt, Pierrot Le Fou, Alphaville, made in USA are merely some of his titles), Godard worked with a new generation of stars including Jean Seberg. Brigitte Bardot, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina, whom he married in 1961. But as the 1960s progressed he became more and more disillusioned with the Hollywood he had idolised. His second wife Anne Wiazemsky provided an entree to the student politics that would explode on to the world's front pages in May '68. For the next four years Godard's cinema would be made at the service of Maoist politics." "It was with his third partner, Anne-Marie Mieville, that Godard made the final break with both politics and conventional film to create a completely new form of cinema with films like the extraordinarily beautiful and still little-known work, Histoire(s) Du Cinema." "Illustrated throughout with more than 100 photographs, this authoritative biography is both a recognition of Godard's genius and a perceptive investigation of French cinema, the events of May '68 and Modernism's long finish."--Jacket." ;
