Masculine Feminine: In Text
I recently bought Masculine Feminine in paperback - it contains the script, over a 100 photos from the film, movie reviews circa 1966, and some interviews with Godard. I'm really excited about this find - and a little bit surprised. I cruise the used bookstore where I bought this on the regular, and hadn't seen it there before. I assure you if I had I would have purchased it long ago. There is no way for me to know how many more editions of this book are still available - it definitely has a certain 'out of print' feel to it.
I'm going to make a sincere attempt to go through the entire text today. I tried late yesterday, but I was suffering through a migraine. A direct result of too much time in front of the screen editing this page - or because of too little food - your guess is as good as mine.
I definitely like what I see so far from this book. It a shame that these type of books have gone out of style. I'm not sure why this is - it's a fantastic way to format books directed towards film lovers. It's almost like a film. Well, maybe a silent film. Well, maybe more like a comic book, but with more text then pictures.
I also saw a similar book for Last Year At Marienbad at the same bookstore. That was actually my first target for purchase, but there was no way I could overlook MF. Vintage Godard is just too sweet to pass up! I'll get it next time.
