Breathless ★★ 1983 (R)

Car thief turned cop killer has a torrid love affair with a French student studying in Los Angeles as the police slowly close in. Glossy, smarmy remake of the Godard classic that concentrates on the thin plot rather than any attempt at revitalizing the film syntax. 105m/C VHS, DVD . Richard Gere, Valerie Kaprisky, Art Metrano, John P. Ryan, Lisa Jane Persky; D: Jim McBride; W: Jim McBride, L.M. Kit Carson; M: Jack Nitzsche.
