Movie poster of the week

November 9, 2007

Pierrot le Fou

One of my all-time favorite Godards, I always think of Pierrot le Fou as a particularly horizontal movie, so this strikingly vertical design, created this year for the Janus re-release, is unusual. (The poster can be bought from the Criterion store). Can anyone tell me what book Belmondo is carrying?



  1. Amazing! I want this on my wall pronto. Has Godard ever made a vertical movie?

  2. As for what book he’s holding, you’ll find out on Wednesday.

  3. Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads, which was a Maoist Bande Dessinee before being reformatted by the BBC in the 1970s.
