“All is linked, all is consequence.”


A fusion of science fiction, pulp characters, and surrealist poetry, Godard’s irreverent journey to the mysterious Alphaville remains one of the least conventional films of all time. Eddie Constantine stars as intergalactic hero Lemmy Caution on a mission to kill the inventor of the fascist computer Alpha 60.

“More than quintessential Godard. Despite its age it’s that rare science fiction film that doesn’t seem to have dated at all. That’s partly because, in an act of typical impishness, everything you see in Alphaville looks quintessential 1960s. It was Godard’s notion to create a future using nothing but language and attitude. And Eddie Constantine.” —Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times (2014)
