Retrospective Godard |
This paper will argue that GodardŐs self-portrait draws attention to the divided nature of a genre in which author, artist, and self appear in an uncanny encounter with their own representation. Unlike Montaigne, who exhilarates in the consubstantiality of the book, I will show that Godard is a far more reluctant painter of the self, who inflects his work with images of loss and mourning for a screen-self that will perhaps never coincide with the real and that perhaps will serve as an insufficient epitaph for the directorŐs oeuvre and for his cinematographic legacy.
