Critic Reviews for Film socialisme
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.
This isn't exactly a popcorn movie. I'm not sure it's even a movie, as much as an edgy art installation.
It makes a mockery of the star-rating system. How to judge a film on those terms when there's nothing to judge it against?
This is Godard's most focused statement in years. Yet what he's saying is often leftist agitprop.
Those receptive to Godard's sense of humor will find "Film Socialisme" an elusive yet expansive provocation. Those less receptive will find it elusive, period.
Audience Reviews for Film socialisme
Godard's best film in over a decade. The first 3rd is a totally staggering comment on modern day Europe and consumer society. The 2nd half is a bit rambling and simplistic but fascinating to experience. The last 3rd takes us back to the beginning with even more depth and soul. Wonderful to see such an ambitious piece of cinema from this master.
Typical Godard. Hard on the brain. Fuck you for trying to comprehend this nonsense. Still... better than anything I've seen in cinema houses this year.
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.
