Jean-Luc Godard ‘From Critic to Film-Maker’

April 28th, 2010

Reading this article made me understand how some of his works, such as Contempt, Breathless, and My Life to Live were inspired by those before him. When I think of those films it reminds me of a film by Eisentein, Potemkin. I love his passion about expressing oneself as a lover and maker of film. I find it to be beautiful that he just knew he loved film and decided to just make his own, but not just anything, something technically innovative. I loved his comment on cinema seizing life. When I see an old film with one of my favorite actors that has passed away, the film immortalizes who that person was to me in that moment because it gives you a sense of who he or she was.
