Jean-Luc Godard's 1966 film. Ostensibly about a woman (Anna Karina) trying to find out who killed her boyfriend, it's a highly complicated film about politics, pop culture, the 60s, and art. Marianne Faithfull sings "As Tears Go By" in it. Some say it's just an ordinary mystery story with Anna Karina playing the Bogart-type detective. Others say it's about the Americanization of France. James Monaco has said that if the film can be understood, then it's failed. Well how?
