MOVIE: Band a Part ( Band of Outsiders)

NUTSHELL: Two hoods prey upon a schoolgirl whose aunt has a rich boarder. Light and poppy compared to later Godard stuff.

GOOD THINGS: Anna Karina as Odile with more talent and eye makeup than her young age here should have allowed, the outfits, the English class, and the dawg

BAD THINGS: Hmmm.. Hmm….Uh… the aunt’s hair was kinda big

FEATURES: Sami Frey, Claude Brasseur, Jean-Luc Godard as the Narrator, Louisa Colpeyne, Daniele Girard, an extremely loud Simca, peppermint soda, hair ribbons

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS: Nothing in the movie really, mostly the uber hipsters in the theater NOTABLE: 1964 release – a very early commentary on kids more influenced by media than by actual life.

BEST PART: The direction – playing with form using silence, incongrous narration, literal narration, and beeyooteeful cinematography of Paris.

BEST LINE: It’s dumb, but I forgot your name.

CROWNS: 4 out of 5
