Critic Reviews for First Name - Carmen
This, throwaway jokes and all, is Godard back at his most nouvelle vague in years.
He is searching for a point of equilibrium between the made and the found, the ordered and the chaotic -- a point from which to define an aesthetic for the 80s.
With equal parts heist drama and romantic comedy, the movie continues Godard's exploration of film ....
By accepting his indulgences, the viewer is treated both to his wry sense of humor and his refreshing intelligence.
The film is spiced with passion, philosophy, eroticism, and technical innovation, and while its ideas are relatively accessible, they still do not make for 'easy' viewing.
Audience Reviews for First Name - Carmen
godard seemed to be in a period where coherency and story mattered a whole lot less than art, which doesnt work in film, because the true art of film is the ability to tell good stories, but this film has enough other things going for it despite its lack of clarity that it is saved from disaster. the film is shot very well, and seeing godard in front of his camera was interesting enough. missing the charm of his earlier work but still very watchable.
