Masculin Feminin Reviews

August 30, 2012
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.

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

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.

The kaleidoscopic film's meandering mirrors the uncertainty of that restless, tumultuous era.

An odd, scattered, free-form, but thoroughly engaging film.
May 5, 2005
This is the Godard that fans would like to take to the grave: jaundiced, naughty, immediate, very much alive.

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

A shotgun wedding of the political and the personal.

Effectively political in the way it captures the mood of a time; the picture feels combustible, like an explosion about to happen.
March 11, 2005
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.

A withering satire.
February 10, 2005
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.

Not to be missed.
February 10, 2005
Thirty-nine years after it first appeared, Jean-Luc Godard's document of youthful confusion has not aged one minute.

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.

An excellent film, still as fresh as the day it was made.
