Contempt

1963 Rated NR 1hr 43m

Director Jean-Luc Godard's cynical take on the world of filmmaking is a poignant commentary about the sacrificial price of art. Screenwriter Paul Javal (Michel Piccoli) must fight many battles to get his version of Homer's Odyssey to the big screen. He's at odds with his conniving producer (Jack Palance) and his egotistical director (Fritz Lang). What's more, his marriage to his beautiful wife Camille (Brigitte Bardot) is also foundering.
