Band of Outsiders [1964] [Criterion] (BLU)

Jean Luc Godard

BUY $35.98


Four years after Breathless, Jean-Luc Godard reimagined the gangster film even more radically with Band of Outsiders. In it, two restless young men (Sweet Movie's Sami Frey and Eyes Without a Face's Claude Brasseur) enlist the object of both of their fancies (Pierrot le fou's Anna Karina) to help them commit a robbery-in her own home. This audacious and wildly entertaining French New Wave gem is at once sentimental and insouciant, effervescently romantic and melancholy, and it features some of Godard's most memorable set pieces, including the headlong race through the Louvre and the unshakeably cool Madison dance sequence.
