Irma Vep is a film full of chaos, which at times entertains and at times makes you wonder what it's all about.

Movies about making movies are never quite as interesting as the people who make them think they're going to be.

Assayas turns the camera on the behind-the-scenes process, and the results are both comic and revealing.

The post-modern compulsions on display here may bring movies together, but they also keep people apart.

Scripted in ten days and shot in less than a month, the film unravels like a delirious piece of automatic writing, though in this case the sinister implications apply to a very different world -- our own.

We just love to make movies about movies to deconstruct them, to see what's behind them.

A movie-movie that's very up-to-the-minute, is one of the year's best films.

A delightfully nonchalant movie, complete with some nice satirical barbs aimed at contemporary French film culture, and fine performances throughout.

[It] seems to function as a cinematic state of affairs, examining the functions and motivations behind the movies we see.

A sometimes scathing, sometimes goodnatured satire of the French film industry.

An arguably brilliant film with the noncontradictory potential to bore half its intended audience and enchant the other half.

Killer Movie Reviews

One of the few movies about making movies that captures the kinetic madness of the process. Maggie Cheung, playing herself, floats like a bemused Buddha through the maelstrom, offering a welcome sense of grace and normalcy.

Like many French products, it's quirky but not all it's cracked up to be.
