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

'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.

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

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.

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

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.
July 8, 2011
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.

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...

A docufiction on diverse subjects mixing untamed genius with occasional, violent yawniness.

Like beauty, meaning really is in the eye of the beholder here - just be warned that bringing a dictionary is unlikely to help you get to the bottom of this one.

Devotees will be delighted by the dense difficulty, but this is really more idiosyncratic than insightful.

Whether or not you believe Jean-Luc Godard's declaration that "Cinema is dead", the 80-year-old 'enfant terrible' certainly attempts to put it out of its misery with this impenetrable three-act brainfart.

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?

An interesting and often beautiful work that suffers the pangs of artistic condescension.

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.

The artistic fire that has driven him for the past half-century is still blazing away after all these years.
