The film takes the premise for an interesting 15 minute short, and tries to turn it into a 90 minute feature, and stretch marks are evident in almost every scene
Full Review | Original Score: 60/100
September 7, 2009
While in theory it all sounds very interesting and intriguing and, well, Godardian, the whole never really comes together
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Godard's films are records (documentaries, even) of personal interests, ecstasies, and agonies at a particular time in the artist's life.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
July 25, 2009
A celebration of cinephilia and a blueprint of the writer/directors obsessions, personal and political.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

Godard fires dozens of ideas at the audience, and switches weapons in mid-stream, but if you only pick up a few ideas along the way, then Made in U.S.A. has succeeded.
May 22, 2009
Few filmmakers can match Godard's abilities with color, composition and movement.

This is Godard redefining image in his uniquely cheeky spontaneous pop art style.

Jean-Luc Godard's Made in U.S.A. is not the celluloid holy grail, but it's close enough.
January 9, 2009
If Made in U.S.A doesn't merit a place, with Weekend and Band of Outsiders, on the Godard's Greatest Hits compilation, it is still a great lost B side.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Gorgeous, minor, and pivotal.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
July 20, 2009
The fresh bombast of U.S.A.'s abnormal groove may not measure up to the other elaborate, beautiful contraptions that were made in Godard's peak years, but it makes many current films look stagnant, if not outright dated.

The foreground drama ends on a query, while the Gallic hills and highways stretch to eternity. FIN.
January 7, 2009
Made in U.S.A. is a tonic experience; its style is both vibrant and severe like Godard's 1985 Detective. But it's also Godard's most soulful movie.
January 9, 2009
In a time of severe economic uncertainty, it's questionable whether even the most esoteric of New Wave adherents will want to wallow in this kind of Godardian excess -- though it's also quite possible that the film has never been more timely.

In terms of Godard's body of work, the 1966 film is as challenging as it is important.

While not one of Godard's best films, Made in U.S.A. does have its moments, many of them comic, such as the absurd dialogue in the bar scenes.
