Bloodthirsty Hippies: The Revolutionary Style of Goddard's Weekend

screen1111a
Jean-Luc Godard's 1967 film Weekend is a satirical look at cultural revolution that begins as leisurely road trip and ends in traffic jams and cannibalism. Sensing a sea change in politics, society and racism, Goddard comments on bourgeois indulgences by blending music, violence, and brightly colored ensembles in '60s pop stylings. In a surreal forested fantasy land, the "Liberation Front of the Seine and Oise" are a band of revolutionary's who symbolize the end of Western civilization and adopt cool monikers like "Battleship Potemkin," "Johnny Guitar," and "Arizona Jules." Colored suede slouch boots, yellow scarves worn with turquoise sweaters, red thigh-hi tights or green knee-hi socks, skintight corduroy, blankets as cloaks, sweaters as caplets, men's shirts as mini-dresses, random pins, gold cuffs, and an impressive array of headwear make up the colorfully bizarre mishmash of stolen garments for the Front's revolutionary uniforms.
