“Godard conceived Jean Seberg’s character in Breathless as an extension of her role in this Preminger film. Arguably, this is Preminger’s masterpiece: working with a soapy script by Arthur Laurents (by way of Francoise Sagan’s novel), he turns the melodrama into a meditation on motives and their ultimate unknowability. Long takes and balanced ‘Scope compositions are used to bind the characters together; Preminger uses the wide screen not to expand the spectacle, but to narrow and intensify the drama.”
