I completely agree with you, on this post. Godard had such great art capabilities. I really like the lettering and artsy aspects from “La Chinoise”. Have you seen it? It’s quite impressive! The set is filled with painted on quotations and posters.
The scene with the philosopher is the only one I remember from “vivre sa vie”, maybe it’s the strongest. A few minutes of quest of truth contrast with the caracters evolving in the same space, but unable and/or unwilling to share their world. Incommunicado. I love “Le mepris”
Came across those two music experiments over Godard images
