Pierrot Le Fou was [Godard's] way of wrapping up the past before stepping forward into his next phase of overtly political filmmaking -- a magnificent mash-up before the manifestos to come

... plays like Godard's formal farewell to his past films, a last play with his old toys before putting them into storage and moving on to more serious concerns

It's one of Pierrot's unique charms that Godard doesn't regard Ferdinand and Marianne's situation with emphatic mockery or inordinate reverence.

Pierrot le Fou is a movie in love with movies, but mostly it's a movie in love with itself.

... endlessly charming and entertaining ...

Provencal scenery is pretty, the movie-star chemistry is potent and Karina (then Mrs. Godard) has never looked more stunning.

So challenging and prolific has been Godard's 53-year career that virtually all of his films are as deserving of revival as Pierrot le Fou.

Made in 1965, this film, with its ravishing colors and beautiful 'Scope camerawork by Raoul Coutard, still looks as iconoclastic and fresh as it did when it belatedly opened in the U.S.

More surprising is how lushly romantic the film seems now -- even the frostiest qualities of the director's volatile aesthetic are warmed by the Riviera sunlight and the presence of Karina at her most beguiling.

The result is repetitive and precious rather than inventive and fresh.

...ultimately nothing more than an infuriatingly vague and utterly pointless piece of work...

Arguably one of the few Godard pictures to have the desired balance of romance, adventure, violence, and humor on one side, and philosophy, literary and cinematic allusion, and Brechtian distancing on the other.

I once wrote of it as "Godard's most virtuoso display of his mastery of Hollywood genres," I now see it more as the story of silly characters who have seen too many Hollywood movies.

Brilliant but disturbing essay on love and a myriad of other things.

Totally bizarre and ultimately without much point -- Godard's message about commercialism is drowned in a sea of oddity.
