Pierrot le fou Review

Perhaps the greatest entry into the theater of the absurd, Godard's Pierrot le fou starts out as ridiculous and gets progressively sillier. Jean-Paul Belmondo stars as a family man named Ferdinand, who up and quits his family man life to jet through France with a mobstress (Anna Karina), who inexplicably calls him Pierrot. Their adventure through strangely tinted sets and with occasional dialogue drawn from TV commercials. Totally bizarre and ultimately without much point -- Godard's message about commercialism is drowned in a sea of oddity.
