Weekend [1967] [Criterion] (DVD)

Jean-Luc Godard

Currently unavailable


New, restored high-definition digital transfer.


This scathing late-sixties satire from Jean-Luc Godard (Breathless) is one of cinema’s great anarchic works. Determined to collect an inheritance from a dying relative, a bourgeois couple travel across the French countryside while civilization crashes and burns around them. Featuring a justly famous centerpiece sequence in which the camera tracks along a seemingly endless traffic jam, and rich with historical and literary references, Weekend is a surreally funny and disturbing call for revolution, a depiction of society retreating to savagery, and—according to the credits—the end of cinema itself.


Also available on Blu-ray.
