This, he sees, as Godard’s ‘counter-cinema’. 57 This statement also serves to reassert in emphatic terms the dichotomy that Wollen is keen to highlight: Godard versus the Hollywood cinema. It is not possible or necessary to address each of Wollen’s distinctions within the context of our discussion here but, keeping in mind my move towards a study of alternative worlds in films, we are bound to find ourselves drawn to Wollen’s concept of single diegesis versus multiple diegesis, and the ways in which he attributes one category to Hollywood cinema and one against it.
