    Rank order:

    Contempt (1963)
    Breathless (1960)
    Alphaville (1965)

    Rank ordering these is really useless. The title of the first one sums up my feelings for all of these films.

    I have only seen three of his films but I thought they were brilliant. Plus the fact that the three I saw all stared Anna Karina, one of the most beautiful women to grace the silver screen. OK, I put my hormones away.

    What I find interesting about the movies of Godard (that I saw) was how influential they were in reference to Tarantino's movies. The acting is very pedestrian, and mundane with flashes of bravado. Godard is very comfortable in letting the camera tell the story and letting you focus on the action, movement, and gestures of the characters. He does not encumber you with mindless chit-chat, unless it is to show a characters persona.
