Over a year ago, when I was delving into Godard, I watched Masculin féminin on YouTube. About twenty minutes into it, I went on IMDb to see who the lead actor was; I don’t know if he looked familiar or if his name sounded familiar or if I was just curious. Anyway, I was like, “Oh, it’s the kid from The 400 Blows! Hmm, he grew up nicely.” And then it spiraled out of control.
