The French new wave movement of the 1950's and 1960's may not appeal to the majority of audiences today, but the genre is required viewing for any film fanatic. Jean-Luc Godard's Week End came at the tail end of the movement, which may not make it an ideal introduction to the genre, but it's nevertheless a spectacle that needs to be seen to be appreciated.
Week End is currently available on Blu Ray and DVD via the Criterion Collection as well as on Hulu (don't confuse it with the 2011 Andrew Haigh film of the same name), and the transfer has probably never looked better since its initial release.
