Goodbye To Language
You can't teach old dog new tricks, they say. Some filmmakers become so set in their ways that others, like Quentin Tarantino or Steven Soderbergh, vow to hang up their viewfinders before they ever reach that point. But over 50 years after his feature-length debut "Breathless" turned the form on its head, and at the grand old age of 83, Jean-Luc Godard has returned to Cannes (not, it should be said, in person) with his first film in Competition in over a decade to prove them wrong. And prove them wrong he has: Godard's bite-sized latest (running barely 70 minutes long) isn't going to turn around anyone who gave up on the director long ago: it is very much a Jean-Luc Godard joint. But there's also a lot to chew on here, and a sense of play that was decidedly lacking in "Film Socialisme," not least when the director's messing around with his new toy: 3D.

Goodbye To Language 3D
Will 2014 finally be the year we see Jean Luc-Godard's "Goodbye To Language 3D"? It has been four years since his garishly digital headscratcher "Film socialisme," and while he did contribute to the omnibus "3X3D," it's "Goodbye To Language 3D"—his first feature entirely in the format—that everyone has been waiting for. A teaser (soon yanked) dropped online as long ago as last summer, but with the Cannes Film Festival around the corner, could the movie finally be seeing release? (The status of his one is so ephemeral, we had left it as an honorable mention in our predictions for this year's fest.)

Far from his days as the hip director at the forefront of the French New Wave, for the better part of a few decades, Jean-Luc Godard has pretty much gone his own way. Hell, dude even gave the Academy the middle finger, essentially, turning down the Academy after they tried to give him an honorary Oscar a few years ago. But his adventurous spirit is still in full force, and the 82-year-old filmmaker has now embraced 3D, but of course, the results are not your average CGI explosion fest.

Every major film festival ends with films being gobbled up by distributors, and the Cannes Film Festival is no different.

Jean-Luc Godard
While Jean-Luc Godard's most recent effort, 2010's "Film Socialisme," wasn't met with the warmest of receptions, that hasn't put off the legendary French director. That came after a six-year gap, but Godard is reportedly already in production on his latest, titled "Goodbye To Language 3D," and according to the production company Wild Bunch he'll be shooting in 3D. Could this be the arthouse alternative to "Hugo"?
