Another reminder why it's OK to like Lelouch
18 December 2010 | by adrean-819-339098See all my reviews

This is a visually stunning road movie. An actor and a composer commence a trip across America, unplanned and on the whim. Interesting dynamic between the two leads, both very successful and confident in their own skins, they finally both meet their match and a romance starts. As with the genre of the road movie eventually it falls apart and both return to their respective realities.

Full of comedy that works, for example the scene where they are pulled over by the police. Even the flights of fancy, when Belmondo becomes an Indian, work very well. Some very interesting reminders of what was acceptable back in the late 60's (the scene in the vegas casino).

Lelouch has been targeted by the critics notably in France. It's unexplainable for me. There are those among the French critics who are extra hard on their own directors and Lelouch having an unmistakable style which often defies the school of thought and also having a career over 40 years is obviously an easy target.
