203: Allons-y, Alonzo!

I shredded some old papers today, and came across the receipt for my copy of Pierrot le Fou, my favorite film from the French and Italian New-Wave film class I took in college.  Also, I had forgotten that "Allons-y, Alonso" is repeated several times in the movie.  Directed by Jean-Luc Godard and starring Jean Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina, it's a wacky crime caper with musical interludes and some existential contemplation.  It's also very, very French.  I feel a little pretentious when I watch it, but it does make me happy.
