Letter to Jane

Director: Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Pierre Gorin
Year Released: 1972
Rating: 2.0

Godard and Gorin, in English, analyze a photo of "Hanoi Jane," its meaning and the meaning of Jane Fonda, as an American movie star, defending the "enemy" during the Vietnam Conflict. Indebted almost entirely to the work of Guy Debord, especially The Society of the Spectacle, but without the all-consuming scope and depth; also, I'm not sure that the two filmmakers aren't taking a swipe at Debord, since some of the lines they read sound close - if not identical - to some of the famous Situationalist's observations. Only for the curious and patient; it's not an essential work like Tout Va Bien is.
