Mr. Godard has made a funny, fractured, totally self-absorbed movie, without a real story, about the making of a movie that has no real story.

In spite of its best intentions, the film is a frustrating, even challenging, but ultimately empty experience.

A superb film with more narrative than one usually expects from Godard and a surprising amount of humor.

This film has enough intellectual stimulation in it for me not to loathe it...

Autobiographical? Was Godard having a dark period? I get his point but under the same thought, why bother making a film about it? I suppose it needed to be raised, I just wonder what impact it really had. Interesting and intriguing but not particularly entertaining.
