Love, in Godard's case, is indistinguishable from cinema and thus he sees the growing capitalist machine as a threat to both.

July 5, 2004
Free-associative, unreasonable and stubborn, unresolved, and elegiac in tone, In Praise of Love is a great meditation on memory, aging, and love.

This slippery, undefined, but gaping loss makes Godard's forceful, elegant, and profound film all the more unshakable.
October 2, 2002
For all its bile and incoherence, In Praise of Love is filled with haunting images and insights. Godard may be a lion in winter, but the lion still roars.
