[nice tight clean book with no discernible wear; jacket lightly age-toned with minor edgewear, shallow chip at top of front panel that's somewhat camouflaged by the white-paper backing of the dust jacket protector]. (Cinema Two) Series (B&W photographs) "In this volume, [Godard's] writings have been collected from his early writings in La Gazette du Cinema (1950) to his later work for Cahiers [du Cinema]. Godard wrote at first for a local readership, using a verbal shorthand, private allusions, puns, jokes, and sometimes wild philosophical and scholastic references; even now it is not easy for the foreign reader to understand him. To help the English reader, Tom Milne has added to his translation a commentary, explaining obscurities and establishing links between separate articles and between the articles and Godard's own work in the cinema. The result is a totally absorbing criticism of the cinema and of its time: a chapter in the history of taste, and a unique document for the understanding of its author." Also featured is an introduction by Richard Roud, longtime director of the New York Film Festival and one of the most important American champions of Godard's work. (The original French edition, published by Pierre Belfond in 1968, was entitled "Jean-Luc Godard par Jean-Luc Godard.")
