Can anyone recommend any good books (biographical, filmographical,
stylistical or otherwise) on Godard?  I desperately want Godard on
Godard but the cost is in the $80 range because it is out of print.
Does anyone know where I can get a copy of this for less?  Has anyone
read the recent book by Jean-Luc Douin on Godard?  It seems interesting.
Also, is anyone willing to trade Godard videos?  I have copies of First
Name:  Carmen, Contempt, Weekend, Breathless, Alphaville, and
Masculine-Femenine.  I am interested in ANY of the other Godard films
(esp. Pierrot le Fou, A Woman is A Woman).
I have not seen Breathless yet, I want to build up to it by first seeing
the others.  The only I have seen are Alphaville, Contempt, and First
Name:  Carmen.  Of these FN:C is by far my favorite.  Has anyone seen
this?  It was made in '83 and makes wonderfully innovative use of
sound.  I will soon watch Weekend and Masculine-Feminine.  I hear these
are great films as well.
Although to date I have been able to view relatively few of his films, I
have read much on the man and his theory and practices.  I am interested
in corresponding with anyone who would like to comment on and discuss
any aspect of the man or his films (one and the same?) or anyone who is
just a great fan.
