Prior to the American Cinematheque’s imminent run of Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye to Language 3-D at the Aero, the repertory stalwarts are taking it upon themselves to acquaint viewers with his earlier works. Pierrot le Fou and Contempt kick off the series at the Egyptian at 7:30 p.m. French New Wave mainstays Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina (then Godard’s wife, though not for much longer) star as “the last romantic couple” in Pierrot, while Contempt, Godard’s semi-autobiographical dissection of a marriage on the rocks, is far more despairing in its outlook on love
