A year in the life of William Shakespeare Faber, Two recent bestselling biographies of William Shakespeare have provided entertaining and accessible accounts of the famous bard in the context of 16th and early 17th century English society. Books about Shakespeare are not rare. Hundreds of studies and articles on this subject appear each year, yet this is mostly work by and for academics, and seems to have very little impact on the way Shakespeare is viewed in our society in general. The suggestion that his plays might be dropped from school and college courses incites tabloid columnists to nationalistic indignation, and most schoolchildren are still forced to regard him in the same way that their parents and grandparents did:
From the beginning of his career, Godard included more film references into his movies than did any of his New Wave colleagues. In Breathless, his citations include a movie poster showing Humphrey Bogart —from The Harder They Fallhis last film  whose expression the lead actor Jean-Paul Belmondo tries reverently to imitate —visual quotations from films of Ingmar BergmanSamuel FullerFritz Langand others; and an onscreen dedication to Monogram Pictures an American B-movie studio.
The film also contains citations in images or on the soundtrack— MozartPicassoJ. BachPaul Kleeand Auguste Renoir. Seberg had become famous in when Otto Preminger had chosen her to play Joan of Arc in his Saint Joanand had then cast her in his acidulous adaptation of Bonjour Tristesse.
Tracking shots were filmed by Coutard from a wheelchair pushed by Godard. Though he had prepared a traditional screenplay, he dispensed with it and Godard wrote the dialogue day by day as the production went ahead. The film begins on 13 Maythe date of the attempted putsch in Algeriaand ends later the same month.
In the film, Bruno Forestier a photojournalist who has links with a right wing paramilitary group working for the French government, is ordered to murder a professor accused of aiding the Algerian resistance.
He is in love with Veronica Dreyer, a young woman who has worked with the Algerian fighters. He is captured by Algerian militants and tortured.
His organisation captures and tortures her. Unlike Seberg, Karina had virtually no experience as an actress and Godard used her awkwardness as an element of her performance. He wrote the dialogue every day and, since it was filmed without direct sound and was dubbed, called dialogue to the actors.
Godard and Karina were a couple by the end of the shoot. Karina starred as Nana, an errant mother and aspiring actress whose financially strained circumstances lead her to the life of a streetwalker. In one scene, within a cafe, she spreads her arms out and announces she is free to raise or lower them as she wishes.
It was the influence and suggestion of Roberto Rossellini that led Godard to make this film which follows two peasants who join the army of a king, only to find futility in the whole thing as the king reveals the deception of war-administrating leaders.
A coproduction between Italy and France, Contempt became known as a pinnacle in cinematic modernism with its profound reflexivity. It was a slow, deliberate, toned-down black-and-white picture without a real story. The film was shot in four weeks  and was "an explicitly and stringently modernist film".
InGodard directed Alphavillea futuristic blend of science fiction, film noirand satire. Eddie Constantine starred as Lemmy Cautiona detective who is sent into a city controlled by a giant computer named Alpha His mission is to make contact with Professor von Braun Howard Vernona famous scientist who has fallen mysteriously silent, and is believed to be suppressed by the computer.
Pierrot le Fou featured a complex storyline, distinctive personalities, and a violent ending. With an extensive cast and variety of locations, the film was expensive enough to warrant significant problems with funding.
He solicited the participation of Jean-Paul Belmondo, by then a famous actor, in order to guarantee the necessary amount of capital. An intertitle refers to the characters as "The children of Marx and Coca-Cola.
A" is inspired by American Noir films. Anna Karina stars as the anti-hero searching for her murdered lover; the film includes a cameo by Marianne Faithfull. La Chinoise saw Godard at his most politically forthright so far. The film focused on a group of students and engaged with the ideas coming out of the student activist groups in contemporary France.Author’s Bio.
