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.

Foray into the mindset of the Children of the Sixties.

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

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.

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

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.

One of the quintessential '60s foreign art films, a bizarre melange of pop music, revolution, sex, movie allusions and poetry.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

Masterly by any measure.
