Miller's Weekly Film Reviews

The work of French-Swiss filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard challenged political and societal norms, while at the same time, making his mark as a timeless and influential filmmaker. One of Godard's boldest films in scope – CinemaScope, that is – is Contempt. This tale of contradictions within the seemingly mundane was originally released in 1963 and featured actress, Brigitte Bardot. The film is now being re-issued. Joining us now in studio to talk about Contempt, as well as the recently released film Alexandra, is Eight Forty-Eight's film critic, Jonathan Miller.

Contempt
is currently showing at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago. Alexandra opens at the Music Box Theatre beginning August 8.
