Le Funky Drummer

I wanna give the drummer some of this funky soul... I caught Weekend earlier, my first and favourite Godard film above all else. Watching the final act of the film when Jean Yanne and Mireille Darc fall foul of the hippie revolutionaries I couldn't help but be reminded of that moment in the The Bronx Warriors when a gang summit is called under the Brooklyn Bridge, the tenuous link being that both films feature drummers belting it out in the most unusual of places. I wonder did Enzo Castellari include his drummer as a nod to Godard's film ?
