    No one makes 'em quite like Jean-Luc.

  2. Royce Jr.'s rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

  3. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

  4. Ethan's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    Godard discussing film in a stream of consciousness, you just can't help but watch.

  5. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

  6. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    "Thus, the art of the 19th century - cinema - made the 20th century exist, which barely existed."

  7. knockkneed's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    an essay of the same nostalgia that drove Jack Torrance / in form of the rapid info-collages that replace textbooks in sci-fi

  8. Chris_Parker's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    Far more cognitive & challenging than you'd expect.

  9. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    There comes a film, in everyone's lives, that makes you wonder why anyone would bother making anymore movies after that; this is mine.

  10. Braden Vallenères's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    Film as dream, film as nightmare, film as the 20th century.

  11. Kamran's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    http://nextprojection.com/2014/12/04/godard-forever-part-two-histoires-du-cinema-review/ 80/100 - Though challenging, Godard’s symphony of cinema history is a deeply impressive testament to the limitless possibilities of the medium.

  12. El Biffo's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    Fun, informative, and a must-see for every serious cinemaphile.

  13. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    Made pretty much exclusively for people who recognize stills from Night of the Hunter, Godard's rumination on 100 years of film history improves the deeper you sink into cinephilia. His academicism can often lapse into humorless self-parody, but as a montage artist (with metaphors cohering from the sea of pixels), he's a wizard. The final effect is emotional rather than academic. Which means it's cinema after all.

  14. nadka's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    dear Jean-Luc, i love you dearly and get your point here. but you grumble too much. i'll watch this again, in 20 years or so, when i'm older and more bitter. maybe i'll be able to relate to it more then

  15. Heikan's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    You know how Zisek's Pervert's Guide to Cinema is a psychological tour de force on movies? Well, this is Godard's attempt to create a poetic side note about film history. The anecdotes, context, impact, in short, the whole scope of cinema, all broken down to collected thoughts from Jean-Luc himself. Could have been Godard's masterpiece, but no. The fuckin' typewriter didn't allowed it. Seriously, fuck that thing.

  16. Chambord's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    As much as I like Godard's features, I seem to hate his video essays. It first hit me with Film Socialisme and now this. The level of didacticism, drenched in this dadaist experimentalism, creates a barrage between my poor mind and his. Unlike his narrative films, here the ideas are drowned before they reach me. 3 minutes into it and I found my fingernails stuck into my neck (well sorta). I'm so not ready for this.

  17. Seth Farmer's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    i see Tex Avery, so i must see this

  18. TFCHooligan69's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    Perhaps Monsieur Godard's greatest achievement, or one of them, at least. Just finished viewing the 2-disc Olive Films release.

  19. bugz's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

  20. PROKOSCH's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    On DVD in North America finally, FINALLY, finally, thank you Olive Films. Glorious. ECSTATIC.

  21. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    Thoroughly odious. Narcissistic, incoherent, and more than a little insane, this series finds Godard editing footage of Nazi death camps with photographs of Charlie Chaplin and Hitler, cut with not a little bit of hardcore pornography, while the "auteur" spews about Vietnam, Francis Bacon, Irving Thalberg, and Arthur Rimbaud in mumble-coughing voiceover. One must "read meaning" into this. Take your pick.

  22. Joshuah's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    Great, now I have another 4000 films I need to watch. Thanks Godard.

  23. Gylfi's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    A spellbinding glimpse into how a hardcore cinephile perceives the relationship between cinema and various other artforms, such as literature, poetry, painting and music. The shortcomings and the success of cinema's past, the possibilities and the limitations of this artform, everything is explored in this masterpiece. A beautiful tribute to Italian cinema, reminiscing about the nouvelle vague, so much to enjoy here.

  24. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Histoire(s) du cinéma

    What a great and interesting look into cinema!
