One of the spiritual fathers of the French New Wave. I like how fresh his older work still feels, his more recent experiments on the other hand appear a bit out of touch. A man whose films are impossible to ignore if you're serious about cinema.

Film Socialisme poster

It's nice that some directors want to be experimental and explore new ways to push cinema as an artform. Godard used to be very good at it, but ever since he's been embracing new technologies his work has become so crude and blunt that it can be difficult to watch. The potential is there, the execution isn't.
