Dir. Jean-Luc Godard. 1980, 87 mins.

35mm print. With Isabelle Huppert, Jacques Dutronc, and Nathalie Baye. A video artist, his lover, and a prostitute cross paths in Godard’s inventive return to relatively mainstream filmmaking. “Someone once remarked that ‘real’ is a word that means nothing without quotation marks; Every Man for Himself is Jean-Luc Godard’s last-ditch attempt to knock them off.”
