Frame by luminous frame, Hail Mary (1985) seems to me [Godard’s] most beautiful work… Far from shocking, Hail Mary feels like a brave, all-too-rare attempt to regain innocence when looking at the body, nature and everything else, as if virginity – ‘knowing only the shadow of love’ – was really a transcendent way of seeing the world.

Despite the tempestuousness of Mary and Joseph’s body-soul struggle, Godard’s filmmaking is calm and eloquent, nearly untroubled in an era of troublesome productions. Whether we see Mary’s soul or not is undoubtedly up to the viewer, but the tender sympathy of this resolutely materialist filmmaker remains resplendent in its beauty and voluptuous in its polyphony of cinematic records—in ways that all but immediately reveal the pulsing meaning and power within the images’ forms.

…The idea sounds like a joke, and there is puckish humor in the movie (there’s also a startling, yet sacral, eroticism, which resulted in protests against the film worldwide, including at its 1985 screening at the New York Film Festival), but Godard invests the subject with his full and passionate philosophical devotion, starting with the image itself.
