You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
About a man who’s angry at his wife because she’s met another man on a park bench and they no longer even speak the same language.
If you rearrange the letters in "Godard" you can spell "rad dog."
Who shot this thing, Dick Poop? (Spoiler alert)
I'll be here all... well, forever, I'm never shutting down my account.
No rating because I don't how I feel about the movie. Or any movie. Or feelings.

I simply don't feel I have the cultural capital to even begin to really decode this, but I think it's suggesting that words and pictures may no longer be sufficient to make sense of the world around us, that things have mutated so much that we're sort of like a dog trying to interpret humans. We need to learn new tricks. Could be pulling that out of my ass, though.
In any case I was frequently and literally stunned by this, disoriented moment to moment, and it was exhilarating.
Cat videos are for hacks. Dog videos are for auteurs.
“soon, people will need interpreters to understand the words coming out of their own mouths.”
you can say that again.
if ever stars were meaningless... easily the most fascinating and hostile use of 3D i've ever seen in a feature, puts image in direct conflict with meaning, encouraging viewers to see what we don't see. that often translates into watching a man fondling a naked woman's ass as he takes a massive liquid shit. in 3D.
the split-image stuff makes for some of the most sublime moments i've had at the movies this year – as your eyes cross and then individually close, you can practically feel the synapses latching onto each other in your brain.

Preliminary scattered thoughts at The Film Stage (written literally only 2 hours after its Cannes premiere). Theoretically, this is the miracle that answers the dilemma of Historie(s) Du Cinema: Cinema as document vs. Cinema as art. Arnheim's Total Cinema and Bazin's Total Realism have long stood opposite for each other. Through the use of 3D flip cams, Godard proposes that a Total Cinema is simply a Total Realism. In essence, this is a film that introduces us to the image without language or metaphor. It is instead the image of pure reality, and thus pure freedom.
Godard, you pretentious fuck.
If I were French, I would feel I'd have to kill myself.
I want to slap Jean-Luc. I want to give him a good slap.
Jean-Luc. Jean-Luc, go back to making little black and white marvels.
You can't, can you? Anna's gone. And with her, the talent.
I'm not joking - while I was watching this, it was around the halfway point, I prayed to ISIS to please put him in a metal cage and lower him into the Eure.
بعد از حدود یکماه از بار اول تماشا این فیلم گدار در ذهنم رژه میرفت این دو سه روزه و مجبورم کرد دوباره به دیدنش بنشینم و نظر اولم رو نقض کنم.در بار دوم تماشا گویا عنصری باعث انسجام کلی تکه های فیلم میشود.عدم ارتباط؟بی زبانی؟تمکن واقعیت از ذهنیت در بستر تاریخ؟ یا پایان دنیا؟میتوان گفت تمام اینها هست و از تصاویر گدار برداشت میشود.ارزش گذاری نهایی هنوز برام میسر نیست ولی چیزی که پیداست اینه که تعداد خیلی کمی فیلم بهت دهن کجی میکنن و مجبورت میکنند که به نظرت شک کنی.خداحافظی با زبان جزو این دسته هست.هنوز گدار نمرده و این اثر رو میتوان جزو برترین آثارش قرار داد.
Jean-Luc Godard has probably had more influence on the way I think about and respond to cinema than any other film director. That is not to say I think he is the finest director or my favourite, but throughout his work there has been a constant discourse asking ‘What is cinema? What is its purpose?’ If his films have been constantly experimental in form it is partly because they are raising these questions. If I come away from his films thinking about the way they depict the world, I also come away considering the methods of depiction and the implications of those methods. Even Godard’s almost unwatchable films from the late 1960s have their interests when taken as essays about…
That 3D Version is terrific.
This was the first Godard film I've seen in front of an audience...what an experience.
Of course I decide to start with this movie as my introduction to the work of Godard. I only had the briefest ideas of what his style is but this was really oft-kilter in a way that makes me wanna watch it in 3D sometime in the future.
Film easiest than water flow.
Godard's love of canines was unknown to me until this came out.
This is much better with headphones since Godard has always been obsessed with ruptures between sound and image and in his more abstract films, like this one, it makes a useful cue.
It's weird to see cellphones, crappy Ikea chairs, and flat screen tvs in the imagery of the man who directed Tout va bien. In an opaque scene a character, thumbing through a book about Nicolas de Stael, declares, "interior experience is now forbidden."
This is definitely more rewarding on a rewatch.
I can't believe this won the Jury Prize at Cannes.
