Funny that you call Algeria “France’s equivalent of the Vietnam war” since France had already fought & lost their own war in Vietnam!
Amazing show guys!
In tribute to Godard you should take this show unedited, and overlay context specific clips from Godard’s films. And not high quality clips either. Twelfth generation VHS dupes acquired through a dodgy torrent site. It would be a documentary about Goddard as Goddard would have made it.
Heyyyyyy, I like Les Carabiniers!
Great episode though! I would use this if I ever taught a course in Godardology.
