Critic Reviews for Je Vous Salue, Marie (Hail Mary)
This much is certain: The controversy will probably sell a lot more tickets than is warranted by the comparatively solemn, unsensational nature of the film itself.
No longer content with a materialist analysis of the state of the world, he's attempting here to film the intangible.
The film is not very good. People who have not seen a lot of films by Godard will find it especially slow-moving.
[S]een alongside Godard's other films, Hail Mary isn't that shocking. It's a film of great sensitivity and yearning[.]
Hail Mary is limpid, serene, and, for all the pubic hair on display, glowingly chaste.
fascinating stuff that is beautifully photographed
Audience Reviews for Je Vous Salue, Marie (Hail Mary)
I had always heard of this film, but after finally watching it I was very disappointed. There is certainly a point here, but Goddard's artifice and pacing is so slow that it almost felt like cinematic torture to me.
An offbeat movie for which I'm too intelligent to grasp the spiritual story it's supposed to convey. Gave up after trying (& tolerating with patience) for half-an-hour.
The relationship between Mary and Joseph was interesting and had some heart to it, but the rest of it was cold, incomprehensible claptrap. I had to watch a couple of scenes again to figure out what was going on. And I still don't know who Binoche was supposed to be. Or why the music kept cutting out. Or what the hell people were talking about half the time. A lot of the dialogue in sounded like pseudo-intellectual non-sequitur to me. Worst of all, Godard isn't having any fun with it.
