Re: [Frameworks] Film's ruptureThe original query specifically stipulated material rupture. The Godard reference gets into the broader subject of diegetic rupture, of which material rupture is one mode. Note that the machine gun editing in Vivre Sa Vie doesn't violate the diegesis very much, if at all, because the film's overall aesthetic is reflexivity. Cinematic self-reference was the subject of the New Wave.

  The original request did seem to be asking for literal breaks or abrasions, though.

    I think that one could make an argument that the jump cuts in Godard's early films, particularly the "machine gun" sequence in Vivre Sa Vie, constitute a rupture as it was originally described in this thread. Rupture need not be a litteral break or abrasion?
