In 1980, the French director Jean-Luc Godard returned to the big screen when "Every Man for Himself" was released in the United States. The film was considered a cinematic comeback of sorts for the director, who’d been working in television and video for a spell. Now the film itself has returned, in a beautiful new 35-mm print.

To find out how "Eight Forty-Eight's" film critic Hank Sartin feels about the film, host Alison Cuddy spoke with the TimeOut Chicago senior editor.
 

"Every Man for Himself": A new print of the director Jean-Luc Godard’s 1980 film "Every Man for Himself" screens Saturday, Jan. 22-Thursday, Jan. 27 at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago.

"Another Year" is out now, and screening at Landmark’s Century Centre in Chicago.
