 Jean-Luc Godard’s scathing late-’60s satire is one of cinema’s great anarchic works, and is a flawless document capturing the revolutionary resolve of the era. Determined to collect an inheritance from a dying relative, a petit-bourgeois couple travel across the French countryside on “a weekend road trip that becomes a plunge into the last throes of consumerist society as it destroys itself in auto wrecks and disappears into the stewpots of cannibalistic revolutionaries.” (Gene Siskel Film Center) Featuring a justly famous centerpiece single-take sequence of an endless traffic jam, Weekend is a surreally funny, beautifully shot and deeply disturbing expression of social oblivion that ended the first phase of Godard’s long and storied career — and, according to the credits, cinema itself.
