Goodbye to Language

Critics Consensus

As visually thrilling as it is inscrutable, Goodbye to Language 3D offers a late-period masterpiece from a legendary director still very much in control of his craft.

All Critics (78) | Top Critics (42) | Fresh (69) | Rotten (9)

  • I'm attaching four stars more out of helplessness than critical acumen, by the way; if the film is beyond language, it's certainly beyond a traditional rating system.

  • Throughout this enigmatic film's short running time, I couldn't for the life of me make out what Godard was trying to say.

  • If this kind of synaptic brainstorm sounds like an invigorating cinematic experience, I'm here to tell you that watching Goodbye to Language on a big screen will be 70 minutes well spent.

    February 5, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A film that's stuffed with language, its title notwithstanding.

  • Anyone interested in the possibilities of the moviegoing experience - what can happen in a dark theater - owes it to themselves to say hello to "Goodbye to Language."

  • At 84, Godard is still looking for new ways to express himself, though he thinks it harder than ever to achieve meaningful interpersonal communication in the information age.

Audience Reviews for Adieu au langage (Goodbye to Language)

    It is interesting to see Godard break further away from the rules of cinematic language and make us take part in the brainstorming process inside his head, but after a while the experience becomes more and more excruciating, like the work of a pretentious philosopher.

    No traceable storyline. No visual wonder. No redeeming value (well, save for a cool 3D camera trick that is also kind of painful). The fact that this appears on the very top of some critics' Top 10 lists brings attention to the proneness of idiocy and pretentiousness in subjective film criticism that is aimed towards self-indulgence and egoism rather than legitimacy and honesty. Easily the worst film of 2014.
