Film Series: Contempt

1963. Italy/France. Dir: Jean-Luc Godard. With Brigitte Bardot, Michel Piccoli, Fritz Lang. 103 min.


A writer’s marriage crumbles as he reworks the script of a film adaptation of “The Odyssey” for Fritz Lang (playing himself). Part cheeky autobiography, part Homeric epic, CONTEMPT has enough of Godard’s radical energy, Jack Palance’s smolder, and Brigitte Bardot to delight any cinema lover.
