From : The Cathedral of Godard
The Gospel According to Godard
To be or not to be. That’s not really a question.
Cinema is the most beautiful fraud in the world.
I pity the French Cinema because it has no money. I pity the American Cinema because it has no ideas.
To me style is just outside of content, and content the inside of style, like the inside of the human body. Both go together, they can’t be separated.
I don’t think you should feel about a film. You should feel about a woman, not a movie. You can’t kiss a movie.
One of the most striking signs of decay of art is when we see its separate forms jumbled together.
All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.
A story should have a beginning, middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order.
Film is like a personal diary, a notebook, or a monologue by someone who tries to justify himself before the camera.
Instead of making film we’ll make cinema.
At the moment we are able to do cinema we can no longer do the cinema that inspired us.
