"oh my god[ard]!!!"

I'm quoting one of the comments left on a trailer (YouTube) for Jean-Luc Godard's Film Socialisme (2011). Apparently, the 4-minute trailer, known as trailer 2, looks like the entire movie but in fast forward. He's 80 years old now, he can get away with such things; actually: he's JLG, he could always get away with such things.  

Here's some recent articles on JLG, from and indieWIRE. The various trailers for Film Socialisme can be seen here. Trailer 3, which runs 2 minutes and 10 seconds and has music, is embedded for your viewing pleasure/displeasure.

Let's go with an impromptu Top Five:
  1. 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her  (1967)
  2. Vivre Sa Vie  (1962)
  3. Breathless  (1960)
  4. Contempt  (1963)
  5. A Woman Is a Woman  (1961)
Honorable Mention: Bande à part (1964)
It has some of the best scenes and moments in all of his movies. Like this one:
