Jean-Luc Godard’s reference riddled farewell to his muse/ex-wife Anna Karina – never filmed more glamorously in dazzling Eastmancolor and Techniscope – was shot simultaneously with Two or Three Things I Know About Her and has been virtually unseen in this country due to rights issues.
Don’t miss this chance to view this landmark film at the Castro Theatre between April 1st -7th. (429 Castro Street, San Francisco)
“Made in U.S.A. takes place in some bizarre hybrid Franco-American imaginary world where a Parisian suburb is called Atlantic City, Anna Karina’s trenchcoated P.I. and/or journalist Paula Nelson recalls a long tradition of Hollywood gumshoes, and various characters are named David Goodis, Donald Siegel, Paul Widmark, Richard Nixon, and Robert McNamara. Based on a crime novel by Richard Stark (aka Donald Westlake), Made in U.S.A. incorporates events of the contemporaneous Ben Barka affair, in which a Marxist leader of the Moroccan left was kidnapped, tortured, and killed by the French secret police and Moroccan authorities, and thus, in its mixture of cartoonish impossibility and up-to-the-minute real life intrigue, realizes Nelson’s observation that she is taking part in “a film by Walt Disney, but played by Humphrey Bogart—and therefore apolitical film.” - Michael Joshua Rowin, Reverse Shot
“The most quintessential movie of Godard’s great period!” – J. Hoberman, Village Voice
“The chance to see Made in U.S.A. on the big screen again provides an opportunity to rescue movie art and revive film enthusiasm.” – Armond White, New York Press
