    The Shout

    Extremely inventive visual style, extremely cliche film.

  • King Lear

    King Lear

    It’s got all of Godard’s usual good stuff—dense aphoristic monologues, mystifying structural experiments, thrilling moments of meaning only he could find—but then you also get him going full slapstick and doing-an-adaptation-by-trolling-the-concept-of-adaptations. Ridiculous.

    India Song

    Fascinating and exciting formal choice to make the narration essentially an oral history, elliptically telling the story which Duras evokes visually in her distinctively haunted, decaying, fragmentary fashion.

    Duras's novels are brilliant but must say, I've been avoiding her film work because I have no love for Hiroshima mon amour, a film I find deeply aggravating and uninteresting. So very pleased to say that here it is a thing of wonder to see her find such a perfect way to combine a visual method with her literary sensibilities.

    The Round-Up

    I'd guess 90% of this film's dialogue is lies, and 95% betrayals.
