Sauve Qui Peut (La Vie)

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing the rarely screened Godard film, Sauve Qui Peut (La Vie) at LACMA. Considered his "second first film" (after Breathless), I was instantly blown away by the soundtrack. With a little searching, I found the Gabriel Yared scored soundtrack here. So ahead of its time, highly recommend.
