A MARRIED WOMAN REVIEWED
“A Married Woman” is Godard’s look at a married woman making sense of her life. She understands the male gaze and uses it to try on different aspects of her life. Her husband remains clueless, as he flies a small airplane daily. Raoul Coutard is at the top of his game shooting Godard’s work at the peak French New Wave cinematography. That being said, I really wish that this film didn’t get swept under the rug of Godard’s greater body of work.
There’s something to be said for a woman that grows tired of men that want to use her. She understands what they’re doing and is never victimized by it. However, the fact that her world is full of these pedestrian dicks makes her crazy. When our heroine discovered that she’s pregnant by an affair with a local actor, it’s time to make decisions. If you’re expecting some hefty melodrama, then you’re out of luck. This film is so progressive that it’s trying to correct your nomenclature on social media.
