Car films: "Week end" 1967 by Jean-Luc Godard

OK, first. A warning. This is NOT a film for everyone. (Especially kids.)

But I am watching this for the 1st time, although I've heard about it for years.
I am usually not a fan of Godard films. But this is so great in some ways.

And many scenes are beautiful displays of 60's European cars.
Any car lovers would at least enjoy that part of this otherwise very strange film.
(It is after all pretty much communist and very much anti-American...)

There is a long scene of a traffic jam in a country road that has so many cool cars in it.

Well. I'm going back to it.
I'm watching it on Hulu (Criterion collection)

Just though I mentioned it....
