    Message of Greetings: Prix suisse / My Thanks / Dead or Alive

    ★★★★½

    Godard's best film in years. He again speaks in paratexts, only this time in slapstick fashion. Godard, the performer, is massively overlooked by critics. His self-fulfilling crisis on the end of cinema and communication truly started in JLG/JLG (1995), but it has never been as eloquent as the shrieking and stumbling in Prix suisse because them bones are giving out.

  • Jackals and Arabs

    Jackals and Arabs

    ★★★★½

    The Arab says: And how they hate us! (with faint sounds of cosmopolitan Paris in the background)

  • Beaubourg

    Beaubourg

    ★★★★½

    “It is as if Rossellini himself takes the spectator by the
    hand to show him the building.”
    – Néstor Almendros

    Rossellini’s last film is an exercise on camera movements and zooms. Ever true to his humanistic approach, Rossellini emphasizes the truism that art is a human development, whereas a lesser artist would have claimed cinéma vérité.
