Hasn't Westlake bought the US rights to "Made in USA" and forbidden its screenings there? Godard's film is one of his most annoying films and clearly one of his most postmodernist. Anna Karina is Parker and Jean-Paul Belmondo plays a writer called David Goodis. Jean-Pierre Leaud reads a W.R. Burnett novel.
