Still image from the film King Lear
Jean-Luc Godard’s King Lear is a beautifully photographed meditation on the nature of art and compromise, disguised as a modern-day retelling of the timeless Shakespearean drama. Power, virtue, betrayal…and comedy abound in this experimental and political adaptation. The ensemble cast includes Woody Allen, Leos Carax, Julie Delpy, Jean-Luc Godard, Norman Mailer, Burgess Meredith, Molly Ringwald and Peter Sellers. (35mm Presentation)
