You're right - it *is* "Every Man For Himself", or "Sauve qui peut (la vie)", also sometimes translated as "Slow Motion" (easy to see how, but hard to see what it has anything to do with the original title!)
In that film, Isabelle (Isabelle Huppert), working as a prostitute in the city, also has lengthy interior monologues about her dreams and desires, even as she is servicing her clients - those might count too.
How about Juliette's monologues in "2 or 3 Things"? Not JLG's whispery voice-over, obviously - but occasionally Juliette does speak in monologue, most memorably articulating her "coffee-cup" epiphany after the sequence in the cafe - "I was the world, the world was me" etc.

Subject: Re: interior monologue
This citation reminds me of something about a Godard film I never saw
and can't name. In the article I read, if I remember it correctly, it
described a father talking to a soccer coach about performing sexual
acts on the children playing soccer. The article went on to suggest
that this "dialogue" turned out to be an imagined conversation.
Maybe it was "Every Man for Himself"? That would have been about the
time period I read the article. I do remember reading in the same
article about "French Matrons walking out in disgust" and, when they
saw Godard, shouting "you're a dirty, dirty man!"
And, on the subject of Godard, didn't he move into this interior
monologue territory with "JLG par JLG"?
