50 years later, Breathless is still fresh.

Incredible as it sounds, this year marks the 50 year anniversary of the iconic French New Wave film A Bout de Souffle, known here as Breathless. With a story by Francois Truffaut and a screenplay by Jean-Luc Godard, the film shows the thorough film knowledge of both men who also wrote theory articles for Cahiers du Cinema, that is, Cinema Notebooks. Breathless made a star of Jean-Paul Belmondo who plays Michel Poiccard, enamored of Patricia Franchini, an irresistibly wonderful Iowa native, Jean Seberg who hawks the New York Herald Tribune on the Champs-Elysées.

Countdown to Zero

Familiar but still terrifying footage of A-bomb tests from the 1940s Los Alamos project set the opening scene for the sobering documentary Countdown to Zero. In it, director Lucy Walker amply and effectively illustrates the history of nuclear weapons. Given current efforts by many to acquire such weaponry by illegal means, Walker convincingly argues that the only safe position is a reduction of the current estimate of 23,000 such weapons to none. Descriptions of accidental interceptions of black market traders make this case absolutely compelling. Moreover, the film clips along with a wealth of superb archival and contemporary footage.

Initially released in 1927, Metropolis is among the most iconic and influential films ever. Way ahead of his time, Viennese-born director Fritz Lang presented a socially powerful critique of the exploitation of masses of workers by the hedonistic upper class. With astonishing contrasts between Gothic and futuristic architecture, a dichotomous world exists. Within the depths of the title city, masses sweat and toil in long shifts that literally sap their life's blood. Above ground, in Edenic gardens, the elite play and party. There Freder, son of the heartless capitalist ruler, accidentally encounters and is stunned by an angelic Maria.
