Killing Me Softly? An Examination of the Depiction of Violence in the Early Films of Jean-Luc Godard (1960-1967) by Andrew Lawston

Killing Me Softly? An Examination of the Depiction of Violence in the Early Films of Jean-Luc Godard
(1960-1967)

by Andrew Lawston

Jean-Luc Godard's early films were determined to prove the adage: all you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun.

Many of the violent acts that appear in Godard's early films seem 'muted' in some way, however, prompting this exhaustive study of his techniques for depicting violence. Gunshots and car crashes happen off-screen and bottles are smashed silently on victims' skulls.

Killing me Softly is a challenging academic study of the early work of the world's greatest living director.
