Maybe Godard was innovative and influential in his time, but his stuff (like Fellini's) seems hopelessly dated to me today.

I revisted Contempt last year, and saw A Woman Is a Woman for the first time. Both reminded me of I Dream of Jeannie for some unknown reason. If you think that films like Breakfast at Tiffany's speak to the modern viewer, maybe Godard is for you.

For me, Renoir's Grand Illusion and The Rules of the Game, though much older, scarcely show their age when compared with anything by Godard. Renoir has created films that will endure for centuries, whereas Godard's barely squeak through their decade.

IMHO.
