This isn't one of Godard's best features, though it certainly has its moments.

Top Critic

One of those failures by great artists that are more provocative to think about than to experience.

Offers pleasure as well as frustration and engages even as it baffles.

Audience Reviews for Keep Your Right Up (Soigne ta droite)

It was highly abstract thematic sketches mostly dealing with characters struggling to understand their "Place On Earth" revolving around Godard's narrations (mostly musings on Life and Death), akin to [i]2 Or 3 Things I Know About Her[/i], though somewhat less organized. Jean-Luc himself plays a pretty funny character, and the film certainly has its moments, but largely of this particular variation of Godard cinema (the sketch/essay type film), [i]2 or 3 Things[/i] is much stronger in terms of subject matter and execution. [i]Keep Your Right Up[/i] is an interesting film, but I wouldn't call it one of his essentials.

Not exactly a recommendation, I know, but I hope it provides some insight.

wish it had more of that awesomely 80s French rock group and less usual didactic Godardian poetry. Some of the narrative bits work, some just flat out dont. It's not a miasma like King Lear though.
