Like all of his films, Film Socialisme is a conversation Godard has with us: inconclusive, bristling with half-thoughts, jokes and sudden revelations.

Since Mr. Godard continues to innovate the cinematic form and experiment with the digital format, it's just really jarring to see some of the backward ideas in this film.

'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.

Intriguing but puzzling head-scratcher on the decline of Western civilization.

The movie's critique of globalization ... is vast in scope, and the fragmented narrative is replete with allusions.

likely to be an unbearable experience for anyone other than for Godard himself and his most hardcore adherents

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.

There's real beauty in the film, thanks to Godard's innate gifts for frame-composition and montage and his avid embrace of new ideas.

If you watch "Film Socialisme" with patience, good things are bound to happen.

This isn't exactly a popcorn movie. I'm not sure it's even a movie, as much as an edgy art installation.

I can hardly imagine a less marketable film, but that's part of the joy of watching this deliberately unwatchable thesis.

Quickly avant-gardes itself right into incomprehensibility.

Many people leave. We stay end. Not sure why.

If Film Socialism is intended to be Godard's final coda, it's clear that he has a great deal left to say (even if most of us won't be able to understand what, exactly, it is that he's saying).

The cumulative effect of this plotless collage is bizarrely comforting and I totally know what JLG is on about (something to do with ownership, sovereignty and old Europe), not that he'd care if I didn't.

Even Godard's biggest fans are sure to struggle with his latest film, which would be pointless, pretentious and annoying even without the Navajo English subtitles, though it does throw up the (very) occasional good moment.

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.

Unimaginable tedium.

To my mind the whole experience felt like trying to tune into a radio station and only hearing static.

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...
