The Great Films # 11: Weekend (1967)

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard
 
My initial plan was to post the incredible tracking shot sequence of an insane traffic jam as part of my "Great Scenes" series but the ENTIRE film is on Youtube so why not the entire movie? This is what many consider to be one of Godard's last films of *his* golden age. After this film, he went off to produce rather divisive films with a heavy Marxist bent. I recently purchased this on Blu-ray and it's probably one of my all-time favorite films.
