With French New Wave legend Jean Luc-Godard spending the latter part of his career making interesting curiosities like "Film Socialisme" that are pretty much only appreciated by his small, but diehard fanbase, it's easy to forget that one point, his name alone would have lineups forming around the block at arthouses nationwide. And coming right at the end of his 1960s run that included what arguably his best and most influential films including "2 or 3 Things I Know About Her," "Masculin Féminin," "Pierrot le fou," "Band of Outsiders," "Contempt," "Vivre Sa Vie," "A Woman Is a Woman" and of course "Breathless" was none other than "Weekend."

Sure, Kaurismaki's never exactly been a cross-over director in the U.S, but his latest, a hilarious, touching look at illegal immigration, picked up outstanding reviews and audience reactions -- we called it a "pure delight."
