Since I could not find a youtube video link of Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox introducing legendary French New Wave veteran filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard’s 1967 surrealist black comedy masterpiece Weekend, readers will have to rely on Cox’s intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was July 19, 1993 (read here). Since I love all of Godard’s films, it will probably not surprise any of my loyal readers to know that Weekend ranks for me as one of his many great films. Cox hits the nail on the head when he described it as his most Bunuelian film. If any of you readers are interested, here is a link to my favorite Jean-Luc Godard films (read here).
