Co-writer and director Jim McBride (David Holzman’s Diary and Great Balls of Fire) and co-writer L.M. Kit Carson (Paris, Texas and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2) boldly set out to create an American version of Jean-Luc Godard’s groundbreaking debut Breathless and the result is a wildly energetic and imaginative neo-noir romance that has become a cult classic. The spirited supporting cast includes memorable character players John P. Ryan, Garry Goodrow, Art Metrano, James Hong, Miguel Pinero, William Tepper and Lisa Jane Persky. With its rockin’ and atmospheric soundtrack, candy-colored cinematography by Richard H. Kline (Body Heat) and production design by Richard Sylbert (Chinatown), as well as the uncommonly strong sexual chemistry of its leads, Breathless is truly a cinematic feast for the senses. Ahead of its time when released, viewers have finally caught up to Breathless and now it’s been restored in 2K from its 35mm interpositive and presented with an alternate ending that’s been unseen for decades!

No, we only ship inside the US
Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
