Godard, who once said, "all you need for a movie is a gun and a girl," is one of the most influential filmmakers of the 20th century, and introduced many techniques that have since become standard fare: jump cuts, hand-held camera work, unusual camera angles, and improvised dialogue. Asked by a fellow filmmaker if he would at least admit that a film should have a beginning, middle, and end, Godard replied, "yes, but not necessarily in that order." Godard's influence can be seen in the work of many other directors, including Robert Altman, martin Scorsese, Wim Wenders, and Quentin Tarantino.
