Episode #939: Every Edit Is A Lie
First Broadcast: 10/17/22
Repeated: 11/28/22
This week, we talk about the late Jean-Luc Godard, who directed one of the best films of the French New Wave, and probably all time, Breathless, as well as many other noteworthy films such as Alphaville, 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her, A Woman Is A Woman, and Weekend, to name a few. His contributions to cinema were perhaps immeasurable, considering how influential he was, but we do out best to describe his impact anyway, and question whether anyone else with a camera today will ever become as innovative as he was with much more primitive instruments. I suppose we'll all just have to wait and find out, but in the meantime we urge you to look at some of those films above to see just exactly what kind of legacy Godard left behind for everyone to live up to (or not, as the case may be).

So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a this neat little public access TV show on Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else, Kim. The complicated answer is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times, the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.

If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel like sending me snail mail, the address is:

You can also email me at, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
