Part The Swiss Family Robinson, part Bonnie and Clyde, and all mid-'60s Jean-Luc Godard, Pierrot le Fou finds the consummate guy (Jean-Paul Belmondo) and the archetypal girl (Anna Karina) murdering and thieving and foraging their way through the French countryside, with the occasional musical number to brighten the mood. The pastiche is the story and the stars are the characters and what the hell are we supposed to make of that kowtowing-yet-satirical Samuel Fuller cameo? Pierrot le Fou is crazy, meta fun. (Varsity, see Movie Times for more info.)
