Adieu au Langage: A shamelessly self-celebratory update


Well, apparently I'm not talking nonsense all the time: writer/translator/director Ted Fendt has updated his in-progress list of works cited in Jean-Luc Godard's Adieu au Langage on his MUBI page, adding my conjecture about the now-famous movie's epigraph, "Those lacking in imagination take refuge in reality".

My guess is that the phrase may have been suggested to Godard by an article from "Le Monde" written by French author Marie Darrieussecq. Here you can find my original post on the film, and here is (*Serious-Film-Critic Alert*) Ted's film blog.
