Occasionally disrespectful and hugely amusing... It's carried off with an irreverence that would delight Mel Brooks.

Disciples of Godard will be gritting their teeth... but then Redoubtable isn't really for them.
May 13, 2018
I found myself chuckling throughout Redoubtable, surprisingly entertained by its slapstick iconoclasm.

As Hazanavicius tries to peel back the layers of Godard, he only proves how little of the man's work he understands.
May 11, 2018
there's a playful irreverence about the narrative treatment that keeps it watchable, and Garrel, often seen as a narcissistic actor, paradoxically gives perhaps his most likeable performance yet as a largely dislikeable character.
May 10, 2018
Manages to be a biopic, postmodern comedy, stylistic homage and poignant relationship study all at once.

At times - the film's best times - Garrel resembles Buster Keaton flailing to survive in a hostile world.
May 9, 2018
The glib, self-conscious brio never leads anywhere.

Uncertain whether or not to lampoon or truly lay into Godard, in the end this biopic falls between two poles: ironic, given its subject is one of the most decisively committed filmmakers ever.

There's a lot to enjoy in Godard Mon Amour as long as you don't take it seriously. As soon as you let yourself take it seriously at all, it begins to looks a little ugly...

Both Garrel and Martin are good. And it's important to note that Hazanavicius is quite adept at the comedic bits, as well as at the occasional more-serious scenes, which deal with the disintegration of the marriage.
April 26, 2018
Hazanavicius' irreverence toward a living icon is unexpected, but appropriate. Yet the movie also pays tribute to Godard by imitating the loose playfulness of his early work.
April 26, 2018
"Godard Mon Amour" is very much like a Woody Allen film, with Godard embodying Allen's negative traits of pretentiousness, neurosis, and misogyny without the redeeming virtue of humor.
April 22, 2018
Garrel is wonderfully dead-on as the director, Martin manages to convey some of the heartache in watching the man you love turn sour, and the undeniably talented Hazanavicius has fun aping the signature flourishes of Godard's cinematic style.
April 20, 2018
A film that, despite scattered amusements and insights, is fundamentally unsatisfying.
April 20, 2018
Michel Hazanavicius, the director who won an Oscar for The Artist, will nab only contempt for this frivolous throwaway about the life of a cinema revolutionary,
April 19, 2018
The kind of curiously inconsequential homage that neither stokes your interest in cinema/Godard nor illuminates a turbulent love story between artists.
April 19, 2018
Perhaps Hazanavicius thought he'd follow his subject's example and simply jump-cut from happy to sad. Godard had the verve to get away with it, but Godard Mon Amour doesn't.
April 19, 2018
The result is an entertainment of surprising liveliness.
April 19, 2018
It's a brilliant idea. It just happens to be a terrible movie.
