Capital Celluloid - Day 149: Tuesday May 31

Two Or Three Things I Know About Her (Godard, 1966):
Bethnal Green Workingmen's Club, 44 Pollard Row, E2 6NB, 8pm

This is part of a season of Jean-Luc Godard films presented by those wonderful people at Close-Up. Here are all the details. 

Here is the Time Out review:

'Despite some time-bound concerns and irritating conceits, the sheer energy of Godard's dazzling sociological fable is enough to commend it. Paris and prostitution, seen through 24 hours in the life of a housewife-prostitute (Vlady), tell a story of selling yourself to buy happiness, but getting paid in bad dreams. A fictional documentary of Alphaville's nightmare, its virtuoso display of confession and analysis, the sublime and ridiculous, show Godard's deft grasp of the subversive nature of laughter and passions. Too good to miss.' Don Macpherson

Here is an extract.
