Effectively political in the way it captures the mood of a time; the picture feels combustible, like an explosion about to happen.

A shotgun wedding of the political and the personal.

Watching the movie now, 39 years after it was made, I'm struck most by its sadness, its harshness, and its pessimism.

For all the doubt and acrid aphorisms, despite the gunfire that interrupts the soundtrack, and the playful, random death that flits around the edges, there's an indestructible core of romanticism.

It's nice to have Masculine Feminine back on a big screen to remind us of a pioneering director in his prime.

Jean-Luc Godard's1966 masterpiece, Masculine-Feminine, is a must-see for all film lovers. Godard was the most brilliant and innovative French New Wave director.

Don't call it a 'classic.' This is a classic, but to use that word makes it sound like something good for you that's really bland or hard to swallow.

A withering satire.

To reappraise it after nearly 40 years only brings a richer appreciation of Godard's subtlety, sly humor and depth of perception, and his gift for melding nonchalance and profundity.

Thirty-nine years after it first appeared, Jean-Luc Godard's document of youthful confusion has not aged one minute.

This is take-no-prisoners cinema by an artist too honest to exempt himself from its scalding gaze.

Directed by anyone else, Masculine Feminine -- one of three movies that Godard made in his peak year, 1966 -- would be a masterpiece. For the young JLG it's business as usual.

Not only does Paul's battle with Madeleine represent a war between the sexes, but a clash between disparate philosophical and moral beliefs.
