Jean-Luc Godard
Alphaville
1965

Run by a super-computer, and ruled by logic, Alphaville is a place where emotion is forbidden and poetry is forgotten. It's a place where words like "conscience" and "tenderness" are removed from the dictionary, and where those who do not assimilate are executed in a public ceremony at a swimming pool. Shot with style, and infused with self-mocking wit, Alphaville is an intriguing, though sometimes baffling, sci-fi/noir thriller as only Godard could make.
