"All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl."

Here is Godard's 1965 masterpiece of science fiction film noir, Alphaville. Starring Eddie Constantine in his usual role of quintessential spy Lemmy Caution, he travels from 'the Outlands' to capture Dr. Von Braun, ruler of the city and inventor of Alpha 60, the dictator of logic. Godard's muse/wifey Anna Karina plays Natasha Von Braun.

I randomly caught this movie on at 3 in the morning years ago and couldn't sleep til I had seen it. Amazing cinematography. Flashing lights. Haunting music as oddly placed as the dark humour.
All in all in a very strange film.
