Trivia

The film did not include traditional English language subtitles for releases in countries that spoke such language. Instead, the subtitles were in "Navajo English", a translation that baffled many critics and audience members. See more »

Most. Boring. Film. EVER.
16 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is perhaps the most boring film I have ever seen. There are no redeeming qualities to it. I had to force myself to finish the film and even then I had to take breaks because I was so bored.

The story wasn't clear however I do not care about the meaning of the film. Because the film is so sterile and cold, I did not care about what was happening on screen. It appears to me that Godard (this is the first and so far only film of his I have seen) has randomly cut different scenes together and claims it is "art". To me the film is a giant mess and even if there is a meaning I don't care because the film failed to interest me. To anyone who blindly defends this film just because Godard made it let me just ask you these questions: How do you know Godard even gave this film a meaning? Would you defend the film even if another director made it? What makes you think Godard is immune to criticism?

The film features two things that are poor. Wind blowing into the microphone and poor camera quality. The wind was very distracting and did not add to the scene at all, I would have covered the microphone or removed the sound if I had filmed those shots. The picture quality varies throughout the film and it is clear that cheap cameras are being used. Although I like the low resolution images of 28 Days Later, I hated the poor resolution of this film because back when 28 Days Later was made, digital was primarily a stylistic choice as the resolution was not as high as it is now (currently at least 6K) and there weren't any HD cameras around (unless you were George Lucas). This film was made when HD digital cameras were available (such as the Red Epic) and HD TVs were available in homes making it unjustifiable to use low resolution cameras.

To roundoff, I believe the poor quality and dullness of this film is because Godard deluded himself into thinking anything he does will be artistic gold regardless of quality. Despite hating this film, I have some Godard films on my watchlist and hopefully it won't be as horrible as this film.

1/10. This is so far the worst film I have ever seen.

Edit: Just to clarify my review a little, I think this film got undeserved praise just because Goddard made it. Nothing connects the film's scenes and there is no clear theme. This film is very experimental but to claim it's art is nonsense. Now, will people please stop giving Goddard a free pass? (04/09/2016)
