With it's giddily complex noir plot and widescreen, color-drenched images, Made in U.S.A was a final burst of exuberance from Jean-Luc Godard's early-sixties barrage of delirious movie-movies. Yet this chaotic crime thriller and acidly funny critique of consumerism - featuring Anna Karina as the most brightly dressed private investigator in film history, rummaging through an intricate plot for a former lover who might have been assassinated - also points toward the more political cinema that would come to define Godard. Featuring characters with names such as Richard Nixon, Robert McNamara, David Goodis, and Doris Mizoguchi, and appearances by a slapstick Jean-Pierre LTaud and a sweetly singing Marianne Faithfull, this piece of pop art is like a Looney Tunes rendition of the Big Sleep gone New Wave. Special edition features: New, restored high-definition digital transfer, Interviews with stars Anna Karina and Laszlo Sabo, a video piece on the personal and the political in Made in U.S.A and 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her, featuring Godard biographers Richard Brody and Colin MacCabe, a visual essay cataloguing the multiple references in the film, Original and re-release theatrical trailers, New and improved English subtitle translation, Plus: A new essay by film critic J. Hoberman.
