Kinda depressed, this week, huh?

No more than usual.

I've been trying for the last couple of days to remember if I've ever seen even one of Godard's films and I'm coming up with nothing. Odd that I saw a lot of other French films in the 1960s but none of his, even though I remember Breathless was talked about a lot then. Reading some reviews of his work has left me with the impression that his movies are mostly just clever, but I guess some of his techniques have influenced other directors.

About your cotton-picking experience. When I was growing up in California's San Joaquin Valley, I remember hearing friends of mine who lived on farms talking about having to chop cotton. Always sort of mystified me, and I didn't find out until much later that "chopping" meant "weeding". Was that term used where you grew up?

Yes.

I guess the most important aspect of my reaction to Alphaville was that I just couldn't take it very seriously.
