Band of Outsiders (Bande à part) Reviews

May 17, 2013
Jean-Luc Godard's most deliberately frivolous film remains a light-touch slice of New Wave romanticism.

Band of Outsiders is the celebration of amateur cinema that Godard had been reaching for since Breathless but hadn't been able to reach yet because - to modify a line from Elvis Costello - he kept on getting in the way.

Raoul Coutard's elegant cinematography shines on this newly remastered print.

Band of Outsiders may very well be Jean-Luc Godard's best film -- and that's saying quite a lot considering this is the director of Breathless and Contempt.

I can't imagine how Band of Outsiders could look better on DVD, another elite visual treatment from Criterion.

A must have for fans and a great starting point for those wanting to be introduced to Godard's work.

Criterion's DVD of Band of Outsiders is blessed with another remarkable set of extras, in addition to its nigh-perfect transfer and a soundtrack that highlights the very nice music of Michel Legrand.

A must for cinephiles.
