        To the Godard titles Jeremy mentioned, I would like to add
*Cinetracts,* unedited shorts that Godard filmed in the streets of Paris
as the uprising were happening--the ultimate Neorealist project!
        As for readings, let me recommend Yosefa Loshintsky (sp?)'s *The
Radical Faces of Godard&Bertolucci.*  As for Bertolucci himself:
*Partner* (1968), his most Godardian film--as well as the film that made
him suffer the most (in his own words, quoted in Kolker's biography of
the director).  One more suggestion: Pasolini's *Porcile* (1969?)
