Description: Jean-Luc Godard's scathing late-sixties satire is one of cinema's great anarchic works. Determined to collect an inheritance from a dying relative, a petit-bourgeois couple travel across the French countryside while civilization crashes and burns around them. Featuring a justly famous centerpiece single take of an endless traffic jam, Weekend is a surreally funny and deeply disturbing expression of social oblivion that ended the first phase of Godard's career - and, according to the credits, cinema itself.
