Breathless 50th Anniversary
There isn't a lot more to be said about Breathless. 1960 is quite a year for films: Pscyho, La Dolce Vita, L'Avventura, The Apartment, Spartacus, Eyes Without a Face, Peeping Tom, Shoot the Piano Player, Our Man in Havana and Hiroshima, Mon Amour being the ten best not counting Breathless. All of these other films still feel like 1960. Breathless doesn't. It feels as real and alive as it must have in 1960. I guess it's just undeniably cool. I had also forgotten how funny it is. Watching it reminds me of being from a small town and moving to a big city.
