It's upsetting that I spent 90 minutes of my life wrestling with this movie to get absolutely nothing out of it, except a desire to take Godard's camera away and put him in a nursing home.

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.

This film is an affront. It is incoherent, maddening, deliberately opaque and heedless of the ways in which people watch movies.

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

Quickly avant-gardes itself right into incomprehensibility.

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

Only ardent followers will gravitate to this enigmatic work.

Goddard's vaguely accessible collage-essay on the ennui of the modern existential moment, "Socialism" is an inarticulate bestiary of bullshittery.

Consign the filmmaker to history, and his film to the bin.

Unimaginable tedium.

..a technically ambitious effort for such an aged filmmaker, with changing visual styles and disjunctive sound design, but its substance feels juvenile, as if merely throwing out a wide net of provocative constructs would form them into a coherent essay.

Only die hard Jean-Luc Godard fans could appreciate this failed experiment. I am not a die hard fan.

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

Some brave publicist came up with the tagline "Ideas separate us, dreams bring us together" to sum up the spirit of Jean-Luc Godard's new film, his first in six years. Twelve months on and I'm still trying to figure out what it all might mean.

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

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.

Jean-Luc Godard's latest is gorgeously photographed but his most inscrutable film yet.

Incomprehensible, incoherent and intolerable.

A mystifying, occasionally beautiful and often tedious exercise in demonstrating what James Joyce called the nightmare of history.
