This scathing late-sixties satire from Jean-Luc Godard (Breathless) is one of cinema's great anarchic works. Determined to collect an inheritance from a dying relative, a bourgeois couple travel across the French countryside while civilization crashes and burns around them. Featuring a justly famous centerpiece sequence in which the camera tracks along a seemingly endless traffic jam, and rich with historical and literary references, WEEKEND is a surreally funny and disturbing call for revolution, a depiction of society retreating to savagery, and-according to the credits-the end of cinema itself. Bonus features include a new video essay by film critic Kent Jones, Archival interviews with actors Mireille Darc and Jean Yanne, excerpt from a French television program on director Jean-Luc Godard; more.
