Godard was an icon of French New Wave film who revolutionized popular 1960s cinema. His 1960 film “Breathless” propelled Jean-Paul Belmondo to stardom.
Godard was considered French film’s ingenious “enfant terrible” and stood for years as one of the world’s most vital and provocative directors.
His controversial nativity play “Hail Mary” was denounced by Pope John Paul II in 1985.
Jean Luc Godard was 91.
