The guys take a trip back in time to 1960s Paris, France for the French New Wave classic Breathless, directed by Jean-Luc Godard. They address the context that surrounds the film and how that context might influence modern perceptions as well as how those modern perceptions might hurt or help viewings. They also discuss the film’s relationship between Patricia (BAFTA-Nominated Jean Seberg) and Michel (Jean-Paul Belmondo) feels as if it buzzes with life given the off-the-cuff dialogue and hand-held film style. They also pick the one question they’d ask an author of their choice (as Patricia does in the film) and a movie star they’d like to emulate like Michel and Humphrey Bogart.
