Unhappily married journalist Jean-Paul Belmondo puts a match to his settled bourgeois life and hits the road with ex-girlfriend Anna Karina in Godard’s lividly colored Pop Art romance, which starts with a spark of attraction and ends with a very big bang. “Before I wanted to make films, I’d always wanted to write, and in [Pierrot le fou] I experienced something similar to great moments in writing… but from a different angle… and I found that angle more fascinating at the time. I walked out of the theater thinking, “I want to make films too.”—Chantal Akerman
