The Films of Jean-Luc Godard (Suny Series, Cultural Studies in Cinema/Video)

One of the most important, controversial, and prolific filmmakers in film history, and a founder of French New Wave cinema, Jean-Luc Godard has maintained an unbroken string of films in various genres and mediums from the late 1950s onward.
