Critic Reviews for Film socialisme

All Critics (59) | Top Critics (25) | Fresh (34) | Rotten (25)

  • 'No comment' is a shifter, referring back not only to this enigmatic, painful, off-putting, ravishing Film Socialisme-but to all the Godard films that preceded it.

    July 12, 2013 | Full Review…
  • With its rich, layered storytelling, "Film Socialisme" is, in its broadest sense, about nothing less than the history, present and future of Western civilization, up to and including Internet videos of cats.

    January 19, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This isn't exactly a popcorn movie. I'm not sure it's even a movie, as much as an edgy art installation.

    September 1, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Video, digital and internet material are used as if to tell us once again that orthodox story-telling in the cinema is dead. Maybe it is as far as Godard is concerned, but you still regret the absence of it from this undeniably great film-maker.

    July 8, 2011 | Rating: 3/5
  • Unimaginable tedium.

    July 8, 2011 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • In its wintry and valedictory way, the film returns us to the spirit of the 1960s, Godard's great heyday, when images and slogans really were believed capable of changing the world...

Audience Reviews for Film socialisme

  • Jan 23, 2012
    A frustrating, impenetrable film essay full of scenes that are either fragmented or dull, revolving around people on a cruise ship, a couple running for office in the French countryside, and side trips to Palestine, Egypt, etc... If young film punks made a mean-spirited, mocking parody of contemporary avant-garde film, the results would look a lot like this. You may well be sick and tired of the shallowness and bourgeois sensibilities of film capitalisme, but FILM SOCIALISME should convince you that things could be much worse.

    Jean-Luc Godard set out to craft an avante-garde cinematic essay on the decline of the European Union, and the result is an utterly impenetrable conglomeration of disjointed images and scattershot thoughts that never add up to anything. In FILM SOCIALISME, Godard's head is buried firmly up his ass. It's one of the worst films of the year.

    TORTURE wrapped in a pretty package. Godard's last film? The Christian Church may have a new convert. I submit this piece of pseudo-intellectual trash as the worst cinematic experience to ever come from France. Europe.

    Coldly isolationist, random, and purposely impossible to follow.
