A film both of aesthetic and historic importance.

Godard's "interview with a Consumer Product" is one of the things that stops Masculine-Feminine from being the yé-yé movie some buffs would prefer.

As always with Godard, one argues and, dissents. But the film fascinates even where it repels.

Masculin, Féminin is a feisty experiment, and yet not what Godard truly wanted to do with the medium. But this, perversely, makes for a fresh, deeply stimulating and, arguably, more watchable film.

Using neither crime nor the romance of crime but a simple romance for a kind of interwoven story line, Godard has, at last, created the form he needed. It is a combination of essay, journalistic sketches, news and portraiture, love lyric and satire.

Masculin Feminin is a film about young people set adrift in an uncertain, violent consumerist world of pop cultural influences without the social and intellectual mooring necessary to find their way through the morass

No one was ever better at collecting a hodgepodge of ideas and making them work as a cohesive whole, as the voice of one hyper-intelligent, constantly frustrated commentator.

Its parodies and satires are recklessly inventive, and its fundamental pessimism isn't as flip as it may at first seem.

Foray into the mindset of the Children of the Sixties.

May not have aged any better than Godard's other films of the period, but that doesn't mean Paul and company don't continue to ask questions and spout the opinions of the newly enlightened.

There's a seductive immediacy to all this... despite the film's obvious satiric touches, you come away from it with a vivid impression of a time and place and the people who inhabited it.

Masculine, Feminine may not equal some of Godard's prior films but while it does revisit many of his usual themes it is noteworthy for being an intriguing dissection of where he, himself, fits into the picture.
June 17, 2005
An odd, scattered, free-form, but thoroughly engaging film.

It's cumulatively entertaining, and a fascinating and nostalgic time capsule of its era.

It could shake up young viewers now as it 40 years ago, except that there's no French New Wave momentum of film passion.

One of the most alluring and bizarre shapes that Godard's itchy search for truth and meaning took in those heady long-ago days.

Jean-Luc Godard is like a fine wine that is an acquired taste... and I prefer margaritas.

This is the Godard that fans would like to take to the grave: jaundiced, naughty, immediate, very much alive.
