Is anyone looking at Jean-Luc Godard’s extraordinary use of typography? These are title cards and other typographic moments from 1961: “A Woman Is a Woman” (Une femme est une femme). Godard edits the graphics like dialogue or music, to connect and disrupt and slice and chop and cut. The stills I grabbed from the DVD are beautiful but experiencing the super-words cinematically is completely overwhelming.
