The sound of Norman Mailer, who in his short-lived role as Lear introduces the viewer to the central epistemological dilemma bequeathed to Godard from William Shakespeare Senior. Between them, in other words, lies the enigmatic thought of cinema as epitomized by Godard’s “way of having two images, far away from each other, one dark and one sunny.”
