Week End (1967)

This is one of the best comedies (even a black one) that I ever seen.
Jean-Luc Godard directed this extraordinary experimental film constructing a world of chaos and social riots. The rich couple of Roland and Corinne are going to visit relatives but their plans ruin as they enter into a problematic and surreal environment full of killings, car accidents, insane people, poets, revolutionary cannibalistic forces and unsuccessful musicians. It is a political film though that effectively announced the May '68 urban uprisings in Paris and marked the beginning of Godard's politically active phase. A powerful seasonable movie for thinkers with lots of inspirations blending into a philosophical plan that intricate the brain.
