I haven't read or bought this yet, but it looks amazing. Brody's book is a 600 page biography about Godard, with blurbs on the back from Jonathan Lethem, Wes Anderson, and Bernard-Henri Lévy—so I am pretty sure it's quality. I just watched a Woman is Woman on NetFlix and I am in awe of his unique style and innovations, that were obviously direct influences on the artistic substratum of Gondry, Allen, and Kaufman—-my favorite contemporary directors. Even to this day, Godard's films still feel ahead of their time, meta, and revolutionary in comparison to modern films. This is just what I need, another supplementary large tome to go along with 2666 and Moby Dick on my night stand.

Ian I couldn't agree more! Love Godard, and Woman is a Woman is my favorite. So charming.

Haven't heard of 2666... But make sure you read Moby-Dick. I love how Melville writes it like four or five different types of books in one. Also ahead of its time.
