37 T4 Histoire(s) du cinéma: Les signes parmi nous (1998) - Jul 29, 2015
"Godard is great at a number of things, but being Chris Marker is not one of them. To be fair, Chris Marker was only good at being Chris Marker a small handful of times..."
37 T4 Histoire(s) du cinéma: Une vague nouvelle (1998) - Jul 29, 2015
"I'm not sure, i think this might have been my favorite one?"
37 T4 Histoire(s) du cinéma: Fatale beauté (1997) - Jul 29, 2015
"It says a lot about this series that every time a clip from one of Godard's own films came up i just wished i was watching that instead..."
37 T4 Histoire(s) du cinéma - 2A: Seul le cinéma (1997) - Jul 29, 2015
"I'm giving these all one rating, but i think this was my least favorite part (this is the one that's mostly a taped interview right?)"
37 T4 Histoire(s) du cinéma: Une histoire seule (1989) - Jul 29, 2015
"(Cont'd) ...new that he hadn't already said better in earlier films (in particular his underrated masterpiece King Lear, a number of clips which appear here, more than from any of his other work in fact), and considering the main reason i watch Godard is for his ideas, this dearth of new ones (which he nevertheless repeats ad nauseam) makes the undertaking a rather fruitless slog a lot of the time, give or take a few inspired bits."
37 T4 Histoire(s) du cinéma: Toutes les histoires (1988) - Jul 29, 2015
"Look, i love me some Godard but this project is pretty ridiculous and patience-testing, even by his challenging standards. I barely even want to rate this as a 'Godard film' per se, since it's really more like experimental video art (replete with clumsy, dated transition effects), which is probably why it was being screened in a room at the MoMa when i was there a few years ago. The most tedious thing about it, besides the exhaustive length, is that i'm not sure he's actually saying anything..."
47 T5 The Red and the White (1967) - Jul 22, 2015
"Formally impressive but impersonal, which i know is sort of the point, but still..."
31 T4 The Turin Horse (2011) - Jul 21, 2015
"Fuck ya'll and your dumb potatoes."
