Maybe Godard was innovative and influential in his time, but his stuff (like Fellini's) seems hopelessly dated to me today.Watch what you say about Fellini, man. ;-) LaDolceVita is anything but dated and is just as relevant as anything by Renoir. Fellini's images are far superior, too. Two totally different directors with different aesthetics.Godard's barely squeak through their decade.Godard's influence is all over the place. Pulp Fiction comes to mind as a film that more or less glorifies criminals. Bonnie and Clyde was a total ripoff, too. Any film that documents a time and a place will be remembered. Godard's Paris lives and breathes. I doubt if Godard will be remembered as one of the greatest directors after the people who grew up with him have passed, though. I prefer Truffaut to Godard, but À bout de souffle is a great movie by any standards.
