WEEKEND (1967)
One of Goddard's most audacious and acclaimed works, Weekend follows the Dantean journey taken by a shallow, bourgeois couple to claim an inheritance through parricide. Filled with philosophy and abstractions Goddard treats us to a cinematic, metaphorical form of theatre where the point is not narrative entertainment but the stirring up of ideas and observations. A must for fans and for those that wish to askew the super-realism of modern cinema.
