Godard Slams Spielberg

French director JEAN-LUC GODARD has hit out at Hollywood contemporary STEVEN SPIELBERG, accusing him of ignorant and lazy film-making.

The A BOUT DE SOUFFLE movie-maker took particular offence to Spielberg's Holocaust epic SCHINDLER'S LIST.

He says, "I don't know him personally but I don't think his films are very good.

"With Schindler's List he has no idea about the Holocaust, so he looked somewhere else for inspiration. When we don't have an idea about something, we look first of all within ourselves."
