Jim McBride’s Breathless is a fascinating, strange movie. Admittedly it’s not the masterpiece that it’s inspiration is, but it’s a worthy echo of Jean-Luc Godard’s À bout de souffle, and far from the disaster that you may have heard it described. Admittedly, the film left me feeling confused the first time I encountered it, but it has grown on me since.
