Breathless

There was before <em>Breathless</em>, and there was after <em>Breathless</em>. Jean-Luc Godard burst onto the film scene in 1960 with this jazzy, free-form, and sexy homage to the American film genres that inspired him as a writer for <em>Cahiers du cinéma</em>. With its lack of polish, surplus of attitude, anything-goes crime narrative, and effervescent young stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg, <em>Breathless</em> helped launch the French New Wave and ensured that cinema would never be the same.
