Critic Reviews for For Ever Mozart
If what you're expecting is an austere, lyrical essay that takes many tangents and requires serious deciphering, For Ever Mozart is a film to be savored.
The fact that he creates such a haphazard structure for them, and neglects to develop his character or devise much of a plot, suggests that Godard is more interested in talking to himself than to his audience.
For Ever Mozart's wryly postmodern take on art vs. reality struck even some longtime Godard defenders as unconscionable at worst, tedious at best.
Art can't hold back the world's horrors in Jean-Luc Godard's grave and quizzical fugue
At times maddeningly obtuse and precipitously pretentious, at others remarkably moving and profound, this is, quite simply, a Godard film.
Random and uninspired, the film gets a few points for its looks, but nada for its plot.
Audience Reviews for For Ever Mozart
In the confusingly fractured narrative, actors plan to stage a play in Sarajevo and a director tries to finish filming a movie, but as Jean Luc-Godard confesses it's all really just "signs bathing in the light of absent explanation." Everyone talks like a philosophy professor; it's brainy, but mostly a bore.
For Ever Mozart 1-20-07 (or so) the trouble with godard, for me, is that he packs so much into his movies. i'm speaking specifically about his later period films. i watch them like i'd read james joyce, if i were to read james joyce. as an educated movie watcher, with a BFA in film production, i know to watch his movies. but there's so much to it! i usually get caught up in the philosophical dialog, or the amazing camera shots, that i miss the story. i watch more for his technique. i watch because i love his movies from the 60s. he just packs so much into it, and i spend the whole time reading the subtitles and glancing at the camera shots, and not enough time processing, until the movie is over. i know i'm missing a lot. i know i need to watch these movies multiple times before fully grasping them. it's just difficult.
