Modern movies begin here, with Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless in 1960. No debut film since Citizen Kane in 1942 has been as influential.

Even 50 years later, it's easy feel how vivid a game-changer Breathless must have been when it arrived.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Goddard arrived at a kinesthetic technique of jagged cutting during the editing process as a way to speed up the action - to prune out the boring stuff.

Shot on a shoestring and none the worse for it, Jean-Luc Godard's gritty and engaging first feature had an almost revolutionary impact when first released in 1960.

Breathless became a kind of existential hipster classic, a cool flick as well as great cinema.
