Larry Karaszewski on

Breathless

Released 1983
Distributor Orion Pictures

Quentin Tarantino loved Jim McBride’s remake of Godard’s seminal new wave film, even though it recalls the glossy facades of star Richard Gere’s American Gigolo more than the gritty black and white of that French director’s kinetic masterpiece. The plot is more Tarantianian than Godard as well, with Gere as a casual thief obsessed with comic books and rock ’n roll. Valerie Kaprisky is his scrumptious partner in crime and Richard Kline (The Fury) provided the sumptuous photography.
