Godard's lost masterpiece
21 May 1999 | by matt-201See all my reviews

I saw a tatty 16mm print of this lost work of Godard's "engaged" period as a freshman in college in an empty theatre. The memory of it remains fresh--WIND FROM THE EAST struck me as Godard's most uniquely beautiful picture. A melding of tactics seminar and an overview of the history of the Western, the movie joins Godard's two great passions--cinema and politics--in a more harmonic convergence than he ever achieved elsewhere, as if Chou En-Lai collaborated with Mozart on rewrites of "The Abduction from the Seraglio."
