Audience Reviews for Traité de bave et d'éternité, (Venom and Eternity)

If you thought Godard was obnoxious, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Isou lauds himself for his own genius, and directly addresses would-be detractors with a series of snide, dismissive responses. His ideas are neither radical nor interesting, but he perceives himself as a ground-breaker and puts himself alongside Bunuel and Sade and Eisenstein. Some of the image-destruction he does here has some artistic merit, but not nearly enough to compensate for how egomaniacal and retarded the rest of it is.
