This makes me regret being a gora
This film really tries to have its cake and eat it too. Moments that are supposed to be tense and shocking come off as random and flaccid due to the lack of build-up to said events, and the dreary strings that would accompany them come off as annoying rather than stressful. It really feels like they crammed a 2 hour movie into an hour and thirty minutes, which is a shame because this probably could have been decent (at best) with an additional 30 minutes to let the film breathe.
Oh and the acting wasn't too great overall.
It finally happened. Godard became what I feared he'd be when I decided to dive into his filmography: Artsy Nothing. This film, like many of Godard's other films up to this point, mainly consists of characters walking around a room repeating the same stuff over and over again. The main difference with this film is how cut, dry, and standard it is.
With Breathless and A Woman and is A Woman, there was at least a playful energy to those…
I could have done anything today. I could have wrote that script I've been meaning to for awhile now. I could have started working out and taking better care of myself. Hell, I could have gone out and met the woman of my dreams for all I know. So how did I spend my day? How did I spend my sweet, precious, valuable time on this oyster of a world I live on? I spent it watching a double feature of Norm of the North.
Please help me. I have no control over my life anymore.
