Alphaville

Alphaville ★★★

I am not a fan of really heavy-handed messages in a film, and this was about the most heavy-handed you could get. What irked me here was that none of the themes or messages were very “deep” or even needed the platform,  but Godard shaped a whole film around just them. It just feels like a stylish message movie with a message that isn’t worth the time and a style that’s half-done.
