Before Breathless there was no movie quite like it and after Breathless there certainly wasn't another. Jean luc Godard bursts onto the movie scene in 1960 with this innovative, free-flowing, and totally free-ass fusion of Hollywood movie magic and French New Wave cinema. With its excess of tone, excess of style, everything-goes big crime story, its anti-heroic hero, an endless array of setups, its free-flowing action, its often-violent characters, it's realistic setting, its surrealism, its art-house cinema, it's--it goes on. It truly is Breathless. Don't miss out on this one.
The movie is in 3 parts: the first part is almost entirely in English, the second half in French, while the last third section, which is the English-speaking part, simply consists of some very beautiful images. You will definitely need at least decent hearing ability in order to follow this movie. I'm not going to lie to you, though, you will definitely need to have at least decent hearing ability in order to fully appreciate the incredible acting abilities that make up the main casts of Breathless. If you really want to know what all the fuss is about, don't read on past this paragraph!
Breathless is a movie that is truly misunderstood by many people. Many think that it is a French crime drama. On the contrary, it is a truly American crime drama, just like countless other TV shows and movies are. The real story of Breathless is actually a very complicated one, but we'll only get into that once more. For the sake of time, however, we'll only discuss the English-speaking part of this crime-thriller.
Let me introduce you to Jennifer Lawrence. You might already know her from the Harry Potter series or the Twilight saga, but you should definitely add Breathless to your list of favorites. Jennifer Lawrence is simply amazing in this film. The performances are all over the place, as the character of Breathless has a wide variety of different personalities, all of which are extremely likable. She plays the bad girl quite well, but fans of the Harry Potter series should probably ignore her for now, as her character belongs to an entirely different time and place.
Another star of Breathless is Robert Downey Jr. As you may not know, Robert Downey Jr. is the younger brother of one of the most famous actors in Hollywood, Russell Crowe. That's right, the man who played such memorable characters as Bruce Willis' father in the movie Kill Bill, is also one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood today. If you're going to watch Breathless online free, then you need to know that Robert Downey Jr. has also put some of his best acting skills to work in this movie, so don't worry if you haven't seen much of him before.
I would definitely recommend that you check out the first two parts of Breathless (the film itself and the short video clip "Breathless prologue"), before moving on to the final part of the movie where everything begins. That's where you'll find the movie's best special features: interviews with Jennifer Lawrence, Robert Downey Jr., and director David Fincher! Just remember though, that if you want to get free movie channels like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, or similar services, you should always make sure to watch the movies or TV shows you want to watch online on the proper service. Trying to stream something from a company that isn't even licensed is illegal and can get you thrown in prison, so I always recommend making sure you're watching the movies or TV shows you want to watch through proper channels.
