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.
