“I have lived on the edge,” Godard said to critic Jonathan Rosenbaum in an interview in 1980, which sheds some light on his refusal to settle down with a movie or video, images or words, France or Switzerland, stories or essays or experiments too unique to be cited. “Our only enemy are the tax collectors,” he continued, “whether it’s the bankers or critics … People think of their bodies as the territory. About their skin as a border, and they are no longer the same the moment when they find themselves on the other side of the border. But, language was obviously made for crossing the border. My real home is the language, and my territory are my films.”
