French New Wave - The Blog
Welcome to the first American blog devote to that fantastic period of cinema know as the French New Wave.
First off I want to lay down my credentials...
I have none :-)
I'm not a film historian, filmmaker, or film student. Nor do I have any experience of an kind in film. Hell, I'm not even that good of a writer!
What I am is an enthusiast of world cinema, and of the French New Wave in particular. Don't ask me if I've seen all the films - because I haven't. A combination of lack of money, and access have resulted in my missing a few. But I am working on this.
I plan on using a slightly restrictive definition of what constitutes a French New Wave film. I've decided to concentrate on French films released in the years 1958-1966. But I'm flexible! Films before and after these times will be topics of discussions as long as they have some type of association with the French New Wave.
At this point I'm hoping that I haven't bored the heck out of all of you.
If I haven't - Good! There will definitely be more to come.
