the politics rationality of Godard
4 March 2002 | by (Beijing,CHina) – See all my reviews

If you are used to the rational sarcasm of Godard,you 'll like it.It presents his persistent concern --- politics and idealistic enthusiasm.In my eyes Godard himself is an idealist,but his political enthusiasm has to be confined to movie making.It's pity maybe,while for us moviegoers it's luck.
