Breathless, Band of Outsiders, Weekend and Alphaville are some of my favorite movies and I still haven't gotten through the whole catalog. Godard "got" noir by making it his way. Unlike Truffaut who totally missed it. He ruined The Bride Wore Black and Waltz Into Darkness (Mississippi Mermaid) by Woolrich and I hated Shoot the Piano Player. And yes, I read Down There.
