The great Jean-Luc Godard has passed away.
A renowned movie critic, screenwriter, and director, Godard was a pioneer and architect of the French New Wave, a film movement of the 1960s that significantly reshaped the way movies were being made. Along with other cinema revolutionaries such as Truffaut, Rohmer, Chabrol, Varda, Rivette, and Resnais, Godard challenged not only the way filmmakers approached movie-making, but also the way they viewed life through their lenses.
Godard is without question one of the most influential and groundbreaking filmmakers in cinema history. And storytellers are still drawing from his work to this day.
Jean-Luc Godard was 91.
