I love this film. Bardot is a goddess.
Thanks Keith...I had to stop myself from capturing just ten stills of her!
This is an all time favourite film of mine too - an endlessly repeatable film!
Now the real challenge would be to find a single uninteresting frame from this film, one that wouldn't have worked here. I don't think it could be done. What a gorgeous film. I keep going back and forth on which Godard to include first in my own Films I Love series, and this one is in the running. I'm sure I could come up with an entirely different set of equally striking images, that's how rich this film is (like nearly all of Godard's work, I'd add).
here's my take on le mepris: http://eattheblinds.blogspot.com/2008/07/contempt.html
It will always be my favorite Godard. What a masterpiece.
Thanks everyone for the continuing comments...it was a thrill to honor the film and a pleasure picking the pics...
