Made in U.S.A.
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Jean-Luc Godard


MADE IN U.S.A. is vanguard Nouvelle Vague director Jean-Luc Godards great lost masterwork. Filmed during the height of his most fertile cinematic period (between 1960 and 1967), it's loosely based on THE JUGGER, a pulp crime novel by Donald E. Westlake. Distribution of the film was long suppressed due to a legal battle between the film's producers and Westlake over unpaid adaptation rights. In the decades since its 1967 American premiere at the New York Film Festival, Godard's incendiary strike against cinematic convention and mid-20th-century pop culture remains as vibrant, stridently political, and essential as ever.

Press

"[A] bright and jagged piece of the jigsaw puzzle of Mr. Godard's career."

- A. O. Scott, A. O. Scott

"Elliptical in the extreme and loaded with cinematic and political references, the film is nevertheless compelling because of Anna Karina's radiant presence and Godard's stunning images, dry wit, political fervor and endless inventiveness and daring."

- Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
