Luckily you've both posted your lists in the dedicated thread, so you don't need it!

I really wish I participated in that list project... having finally finished off the lingering subbed shorts and commercials a few months ago, I may as well give it a shot:

1. Pierrot le Fou
2. Masculin Féminin
3. Weekend
4. Une femme est une femme
5. Notre Musique
6. Le Mépris
7. Sauve qui peut (la vie)
8. La Chinoise
9. À bout de souffle
10. Le Gai Savoir
11. Alphaville: une étrange aventure de Lemmy Caution
12. JLG/JLG: Self-Portrait in December
13. Vivre sa vie
14. Detective
15. Hélas pour moi
16. Nouvelle Vague
17. King Lear
18. 2 or 3 Things I know About Her
19. Puissance de la parole/ The Power of Speech
20. Closed Jeans (series 1 and 2) + Metamorphojean (commercials)

If the list was features only, Numero Deux and One Plus One would move in (or maybe Tout va Bien.. can the list go up to 21?) More than most filmmaker rankings, this list will reshape itself tomorrow, and almost entirely arbitrary beyond the top two

I just found out that back in December Michael Witt posted on Facebook a link to a very rare film from the personal archive of Mike Dibb available on Vimeo.

In Witt's post he mentioned the following:
It’s a short film he directed for the BBC in July 1968 in Cowdray Park, where Godard was shooting a sequence for ONE PLUS ONE. It was broadcast on BBC2 within the framework of the arts magazine RELEASE on the 30 November 1968 to coincide with the screening (which has become famous…) of ONE PLUS ONE at the London Film Festival.

This version of the film is not the final broadcast version, for which the commentary, spoken here by Dibb, was replaced by that of a professional.

We learn from this little film that the film crew filmed by Godard in the Eve Democracy (Anne Wiazemsky) sequence is the BBC crew that had come with Dibb to film the interview with Godard, and found themselves immediately co-opted into the latter’s film. (Apparently there was no film in the camera that ‘films’ Wiazemsky.)

A longer version of Dibb’s interview with Godard was published at the time in THE LISTENER.

Upon re-reading parts of Michael Witts Jean-Luc Godard: Cinema Historian, i came to this: ... fn-39516-5
and found the corresponding film/video here: ... eo:9923322
It might be old news to some, but was new to me.
