King Lear


Dir. Jean-Luc Godard (1987).
Deft, funny, and intermittently exhilarating, Jean-Luc Godard’s first English language feature was one in a series of madcap adaptations with which he deranged the classics—and by far the least tortured. The cast includes Burgess Meredith, Molly Ringwald, Peter Sellars, Leos Carax, and JLG himself—with cameos by Woody Allen and Norman Mailer.
