Very important movie: Great Godard, must you must be familiar with his work
6 October 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

FILM SOCIALISME is very important movie, for what it is and for it says.

FILM SOCIALISME deals with: Europe, democracy, money, capitalism, information, generations, myths, water and the sun.

It is interesting to see it because of (1) the technical aspect of it for those who understand that cinema is not only content but also the shape, and (2) images+words because it basically shows us the state of the civilization (minus américa, but be aware Americans, Godard does not like you).

Of course, as any post-1970 Godard, it is complicated, there are more questions than answers, and if you try to digest the movie while watching it you will end up frustrated. Try to be relaxed when you watch it, and do not fall in the trap of "modern art", because Godard is not modern art. Godard is way more straightforward than what it looks like. When Godard shows a word on screen, the word is what it is, and that's it.

JLG has said in a recent interview (with Telerama) that Cinéma is actually dead, that there is nothing to do with it anymore, that he gives up. He might be right.
