Here is the editorial of this number 833:

Game over

Take the count: there are not many filmmakers who have embodied more than an era or an industry, their entire art. We could cite Welles, Fellini, at a pinch Lynch… But above them, the specter of Godard will always hover. Because no one will have held for so long, and for so many people, the imperial role of the filmmaker. That he was one of the craziest creators of cinema, in all respects – legendary, innovative, mythological, and even joker – and that he was to this extent never ceases to amaze. In fact, he had tried everything, checked everything: fiction and militant cinema (the period Dziga Vertov), clips such as documentaries (Concrete Operation), advertising and trials (History(ies) of cinema). With this ultimate paradox as a horizon line: a great builder of forms, JLG only considered his creative gesture as an act of deconstruction and radical criticism. Its disappearance (learned on the very day we closed this issue) does not only mark the end of an art of making, of a technique, of a mastery or of a thought. With Godard’s death, an idea of ​​cinema (and perhaps the very idea of ​​cinema) comes to an end.
