BFI Review – King Lear (1987)

28 February 2016 2:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

King Lear, 1987.

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard.

Starring Peter Sellars, Burgess Meredith, Molly Ringwald, Norman Mailer and Woody Allen.


A collaged interpretation of Shakespeare’s King Lear.

Jean-Luc Godard’s King Lear is a memorable experience. If you’re looking for Shakespeare, this is definitely a unique interpretation of the Bards tragedy. Starring Molly Ringwald, Burgess Meredith and an uncredited Woody Allen in the final act, this is an unexpected combination of talents. My imagination runs wild as a fan of The Breakfast Club impulsively catches the latest brat-pack actor, to be met with Ringwald repeating lines and leading a white horse to the water. “Nothing. No thing.” King Lear: A Study. A picture shot in the back. It is possible that this picture was shot in the back by Godard himself, and left writhing around the floor of the studio gasping for a single breath of air. Alternatively, »
