7. Pierrot Le Fou
Year Released: 1965
Directed By: Jean-Luc Godard
Starring: Jean-Paul Belmondo, Anna Karina
A brilliantly colorful film for the French New Wave era of cinema. Both Jean Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina boast a magnificent wardrobe through the various stages of this film, from his pearl grey tropical wool suit and vibrant collared shirts to her various a-line dresses and casual tomboyish outfits. Their outfits act as an extension of their character, serving to intensify the effects of their acting perfomance and keep the viewer's eye drawn to their movements. A triumphant if unintentional tribute that truly represents the best of mid-century style.
