Godard has created such a hermetic, uncompromising world that only the hardiest cinematic spelunkers are likely to appreciate its depths.
It's the intellectual ride of your life, as far as moviegoing goes.
A haunting, intense work, intellectually exploratory yet too emotionally acute in its melancholy to be considered merely academic.
The movie's ripe, enrapturing beauty will tempt those willing to probe its inscrutable mysteries.
The best indication of the film's pretentiousness comes from recurrent images of a book with blank pages, as if to point out that Godard has nothing to say, but so what? Let's throw in a few images and people will come anyway.
Godard ceased being a voice in the wilderness and became a voice in the wind, howling against demons that refused even to acknowledge his protests.
All the beauty does not make the film even half as profound as it so obviously strives to be.
Love, in Godard's case, is indistinguishable from cinema and thus he sees the growing capitalist machine as a threat to both.
Free-associative, unreasonable and stubborn, unresolved, and elegiac in tone, In Praise of Love is a great meditation on memory, aging, and love.
What keeps me coming back to a filmmaker I never warmed up to, is that I find the rascal irresistible.
Ultimately, though, In Praise of Love is about themes, about the anti-Hollywood sentiment that Godard feels so passionately about, and this is where the film begins to crumble.
It's intriguing, visually arresting and utterly impenetrable!
I am just waiting for the cinephiles to jump all over me. A measly three stars for the return of the great Godard. The truth is that I wasn't terribly moved..and perhaps I wasn't meant to be. It's over my head.
The usage of challenging montage and hews aren't an important advantage of this Godard flick.Le dialogue probablement to semi-quote another movie.Naturally,incorporating novels/poetry in the midst of affection and ashes of past loves brings new reactions from both critics and investigating audiences.Condemning the U.S. on past events isn't our problem as well.It's repetition.Godard's films are so clever,it's impossible to rate them fewer than this (unless they're heavily experimental?),I just felt he was cockier than before.
