One of the defining art house films.
This is one of those movies that only Jean-Luc Godard could do. It has a really has a basic thriller plot, but when it's Godard, you're getting much, much more than that. Instead, you get an art house film with great ambition with only touches of a thriller. Sure, there's car chases, shootouts, and a great center romance, but most of the time it takes a backseat to funny, charming dialogue, weird cinematography, a soundtrack only Godard could pull off, and two of art house's best actors (that being Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina) acting ultra-cool and succeeding great at it. "Pierrot le Fou" isn't always entertaining, but somehow every second is compelling and original.
