Scenario du film "Sauve qui peut(la vie)" (Godard, 1979)

In it's own bizarre and hallucinatory way, this set of notes Godard made before his 1979 comeback film is just as major a work as Sauve qui peut(la vie). With Godard's own melancholy VO playing over film, video and mixed media, he reveals much about his thoughts on cinema and narrative. Amazingly, he actually manages to explicate much of the film, as well as using passages of video for critical works on superimposition and digetic/non-diagetic music.

This is a great example of Godard's claim that he never stopped being a film critic.
