Band of Outsiders, now available in a Criterion Blu-ray edition, was Anna Karina’s fourth appearance in a film by her husband at the time, Jean-Luc Godard. The film contains what may be Karina’s sprightliest performance, the perfection of her attunement to Godard’s off-kilter rhythms. In a 2002 interview included with our release, Karina reminisced about her career beginnings and her working methods with Godard. Here is an excerpt from that interview, in which Karina talks about how the two came to work together in the first place.
