As an au revoir to Anna Karina, we propose Godard’s dazzling fusion of film noir & science fiction, starring Anna as the daughter of the creator of the evil Alpha 60 & Eddie Constantine as FBI agent Lemmy Caution.
A cockeyed fusion of science fiction, pulp characters, and surrealist poetry, Godard’s irreverent journey to the mysterious Alphaville remains one of the least conventional films of all time. Eddie Constantine stars as intergalactic hero Lemmy Caution, on a mission to kill the inventor of fascist computer Alpha 60. Alphaville combines the genres of dystopian science fiction and film noir to create a unique, powerhouse film.
“The passage of almost half a century has done nothing to dim its stylishness, blunt its humour or extinguish its piercing message.” – Richard Williams, The Guardian
