Breathless Godard

A lot of you who love cinema would have heard of Jean-Luc Godard. About 4 years back I too was taken up by the magic in his groundbreaking film A Bout de Souffle (or Breathless). Since then, I've just caught one other film of his (don't know the name), and I can't say I understood much of what I saw. Still, Godard remains a gem to me, much like the filmmakers of the 1960s.

The reason I bring this up, is that Godard recently gave a rare interview, in which he says Cinema is over. I believe that as well - the 21st century is more about technology and interactive entertainment than the good old 2-D world of celluloid (and well, digital cameras) that we're used to.

I've been drinking a lot of water these days. But that apart, nothing seems to have changed much. Yes I don't feel like writing much, but that's just a phase like any other. I've also been travelling a fair bit, and tonight me and the other inhabitants of z 22 head off to the hills of Uttaranchal to find some peace and quiet.
Full update when I get back.
