Adieu au langage (Goodbye to Language) (2014)
Critic Consensus: As visually thrilling as it is inscrutable, Goodbye to Language 3D offers a late-period masterpiece from a legendary director still very much in control of his craft.

Critic Reviews for Adieu au langage (Goodbye to Language)
I'm attaching four stars more out of helplessness than critical acumen, by the way; if the film is beyond language, it's certainly beyond a traditional rating system.
Throughout this enigmatic film's short running time, I couldn't for the life of me make out what Godard was trying to say.
Anyone interested in the possibilities of the moviegoing experience - what can happen in a dark theater - owes it to themselves to say hello to "Goodbye to Language."
At 84, Godard is still looking for new ways to express himself, though he thinks it harder than ever to achieve meaningful interpersonal communication in the information age.
Audience Reviews for Adieu au langage (Goodbye to Language)
It is interesting to see Godard break further away from the rules of cinematic language and make us take part in the brainstorming process inside his head, but after a while the experience becomes more and more excruciating, like the work of a pretentious philosopher.
No traceable storyline. No visual wonder. No redeeming value (well, save for a cool 3D camera trick that is also kind of painful). The fact that this appears on the very top of some critics' Top 10 lists brings attention to the proneness of idiocy and pretentiousness in subjective film criticism that is aimed towards self-indulgence and egoism rather than legitimacy and honesty. Easily the worst film of 2014.
