Every Man for Himself
Dir. Jean-Luc Godard (1980).
JLGs 1980 Swiss-set comeback is an elusive but not nonlinear (and never boring) construction that revives his prostitution = life under capitalism metaphor, pivoting on a series of oblique confrontations between a disgruntled TV producer named Paul Godard, his ex-wife, 12-year-old daughter, and ex-girlfriend. The movie has a heavy dollop of slo-mo but the real formal arabesques are found on the soundtrackthe mix is busier than Christmas at Macys.
