 The Lost Weekend Encyclopedia Article @ Alky.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Lost Weekend is a 1945 motion picture directed by Billy Wilder for Paramount Pictures, starring Ray Milland, Jane Wyman and Phillip Terry.
The film was based on a novel of the same title by Charles R. Jackson about a writer who drinks out of a frustration over the accusation that he had an affair with one of his male buddies while in college.
As the weekend continues, Milland drifts deeper and deeper into his living nightmare, committing crimes and even spending time in a mental ward.

The weekend as a day of leisure is a rather modern invention.
The rapid increase in the number of two-income households has also changed the character of the weekend.
Since weekends are days where people can safely sleep in and also not have to worry as much about the ill effects of a hangover, Friday and Saturday nights are the busiest for bars, restaurants, clubs, and movies theatres.

 Amazon.co.uk: Weekend [1967]: DVD: Mireille Darc,Jean Yanne,Jean-Luc Godard   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
One interpretation of "Weekend" could be that it is simply a parody of French bourgois attitudes and values; its materialism, arrogance and indifference to others are subliminally lampooned throughout the film by Godard as a cast of class warriors, wandering philosophers, car-jackers and cannibal guerrillas expose the vapidity of the consumerist ideal.
However, for me, Weekend is something of a failure for the great filmmaker, as it fails to actually deliver on it's social and/or political agenda & instead, falls back on shock tactics, attention seeking gimmicks & needlessly confrontational ideals.
Weekend is still an interesting film, with strong visuals and an intricate and relevant social agenda...

 London Weekend Television Encyclopedia Article @ HollywoodBlockbuster.com (Hollywood Blockbuster)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
London Weekend Television (LWT) was (and for legal formalities still is; see below) the ITV contractor for London and the South East, Friday 7:00pm (1968-1982)/5:15pm (1982-2002) to Monday, 5:59am.
ATV's weekend franchise had covered Saturdays and Sundays only; when LWT came on air it was also awarded Friday night from 7 PM, which meant there was an on-screen handover from Thames Television at 6:59pm.
The on-screen identity changed from the cumbersome 'London Weekend Television' to LWT, the 'river ident' was modified to three letters, the strapline 'The weekend starts here' was introduced and most crucially great use of the distinct fl and white layered tower block that was its' studios was used in continuity.

In Fando & Lis's case the couple's uest is for the fabled City of Tar; in Weekend's case it's for an ample inheritance.
You can argue that seen in its historical context (Weekend was made just before the May 68 student revolts) it makes nothing but perfect sense, but, it seems to me that a film should transcend the era in which it was made.
In a lot of ways, "Weekend" is trapped in the late 60s, and is only redeemed by the technical brilliance of a handful of scenes.

 Slant Magazine - Film Review: Weekend
The two paragons of capitalistic personal enterprise are thrown into Godard's matrix of aphorisms and promulgations where the unwritten rules of narrative filmmaking are deconstructed and trashed wholesale in a formal mirror of their own classist debasement.
Otherwise, Weekend is a luridly colorful compendium of aesthetic juxtapositions and audio-visual schisms that evoke the frustrated tenor of the era.
The film's characters draw attention to the fact that they're in a movie, then aren't so sure of the false nature of their own violent natures when they set "Emily Bronte" on fire and notice her crying.
