Thread: JEAN PAUL BELMONDO, RIP

    JEAN PAUL BELMONDO, RIP

    One of the icons of the film world, JEAN-PAUL BELMONDO has passed. Cinema was never quite the same again after he starred in Godard's BREATHLESS.
    Roles in De Sica's TWO WOMEN (with Sophia Loren), Melville's LE DOULOS and, again with Godard in PIERROT LE FOU (with Anna Karina) solidified his claim. His later roles may not have been as impactful, including a turn in the Bond spoof CASINO ROYALE, but, he remained a style icon.
    Au Revoir, Monsieur Belmondo.

    Sad to see him go. An absolute legend.

    Him and Hill/Spencer were my go to guys for movie rentals as a kid, before I graduated into Cannon and then horror.

    Reflecting the last couple of days on the passing of Jean-Paul Belmondo I couldn't help but also recall that Anna Karina passed away less than two years ago as well - here together in Pierrot Le Fou (Godard, 1965).
    The history in this photo. A time when Cinema really did seem to matter. To be discussed. To be taken seriously. To be savored.

    Not sure if you can see this clip if you're not logged into twitter but a French news channel posted some footage from his funeral - "Jean-Paul Belmondo's coffin comes out to applause and to the sound of "Chi Mai" from the film "Le Professionnel."

    Ditto. Heartbreaking.
