1964 in my head

I have finally figured out just how I want my hair. I want it exactly like Anna Karina‘s in Jean-Luc Godard‘s “Band of Outsiders.”

Due to the plethora of American bimbos in early 1960’s films from America, I didn’t know that women then could actually be beautiful. But I want my hair like that, even if it is too short right now. Gives me something to aim for. It’s the feathery little bangs I’m talking about.

Peter introduced me to the movie. He is currently a great fan of the “Nouvelle vague” in French film, and ponders why so many of the people involved are dead already. If anyone cares to comment on that one, fire away.

He also said that the dance scene in this movie is the best dance scene in cinematic history. He’s only 22, so he can say things like that. But offhand, I’d agree with him. The dance is called “The Madison,” in case you were wondering. Both Peter and I want to dance like that now.
