Great Shot of the Week

A Woman is a Woman (1961)

Dir. Jean-Luc Godard

The wonderful inversion of a musical, in which, say, beautiful Anna Karina can burst out into song at will, but cannot enjoy the luxury of musical accompaniment.  However, Godard finds a musical in the mundane, the moments between, and embellishes the possibility of the ordinary being grand.
