No film may make this more clear than Tout Va Bien, in which Godard examines the rapidly changing politics of post-68 France. The film comically depicts both the bourgeoisie and working class, using multilayered sound, response style monologues, slow pans and other traditional Godardian tactics to render all politics into senseless jargon. The film is swift despite its heavy thematic undertones, and effective in portraying languages inability to communicate the complicated needs and desires of political advocates both right and left. Remember that scene in The Life Aquatic where the Belafonte is dissected through a side shot of all the cabins? Wes Anderson got that from this film.

One Yellow Rabbit announces erotic collaboration with Rheos Artistic Director Blake Brooker of Calgary's One Yellow Rabbit, western Canada's most successfu avant garde theatre company, announced during Western Nationals that it had entered into an agreement with the Rheostatics to develop a new show for the 21st High Performance Rodeo based on Dave Bidini's hockey erotica: the working title is "Five Hole."
"Canada Council approached us to commission a work for its 30th anniversary next year and, somehow, this show seemed like something that we could do," said Brooker. The multi-media extravaganza is in an embryonic stage at the moment but -- "if the stars align", says Brooker, who is thrilled to be working with a band he's watched for more than a decade -- something 'unexpected' will take the stage in Calgary in January 2007.
