From Jean-Luc Godard’s “Montage My Fine Care” (in Godard on Godard):

Anyone who yields to the temptation of montage yields also to the temptation of the brief shot. How? By making the look a key piece in his game. Cutting on a look is almost the definition of montage, its supreme ambition as well as its submission to mise en scène. It is, in effect, to bring out the soul under the spirit, the passion behind the intrigue, to make the heart prevail over the intelligence by destroying the notion of space in favour of that of time.

Wonder what JLG thought of those ads last night. All of that “go to our website to see the rest of this commercial” business was pretty strange.
