Critic Reviews for Ici et ailleurs (Here and Elsewhere)
Godard fans will be forever indebted to Olive Films for releasing one of the director's most challenging but least-seen films, even if the DVD itself hits shelves sans special features.
Audience Reviews for Ici et ailleurs (Here and Elsewhere)
It becomes dangerously pro-Palestine at times (by that I mean pro-terrorist in the guise of pro-revolutionary), but what almost saves it is that the filmmakers can into question the whole form of documentary of this nature. It's a look back for Godard of his days as a Maoist before his near-fatal motorcycle accident, and there's a sense of meditation on his part on the whole mess of trying to document something that is so simple and awful at the same time (some of the terrorists interviewed may have had connections to Black September it's revealed). Neither best nor worst for the filmmaker, it's really just something completists should check out.
