  1. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Le gai savoir

  2. hemachandra's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Godard is more interested in getting a philosophical message across than focusing on character. I should have a read an essay instead.

  3. James Cesari's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Comme d'hab les images sont tres belles dans les films du Godard, mais je prefere lire les dialogues à souffrir de les entendre dans un film. Beautiful images as usual in Godard's, but I rather read the dialogues than suffer listening to them in a film.

  4. captainfez's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    If you were looking for a film to dissuade a friend from the mindset that all Godard films were pretentious shit, this wouldn't be the one you'd choose.

  5. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    The fast and reliable edition makes this one a great rendition.

  6. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    When Mao and Stalin were great until the truth was revealed. Millions slaughtered

  7. rociof's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Poco probable. Un trabajo menor.

  8. NicoIlGermanico's rating of the film Le gai savoir

  9. Pierre.F's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    "Dissoudre les images et les sons" Une véritable expérience cinématographique et politique à la manière dont Rousseau a initié cette tradition des expériences de pensée.

  10. Balthaz21's rating of the film Le gai savoir

  11. Cependant's rating of the film Le gai savoir

  12. Ludovic72's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Avec des moyens basiques (deux personnages sur un fond noir, quelques intervenants ponctuels et des archives), Godard se livre à une expérience d'analyse / démontage du médium cinéma et du discours révolutionnaire de l'époque. Le résultat est à la fois horripilant et amusant, ridicule et intelligent, assommant et revigorant. Cet essai théorico-pratique assume d'ailleurs son côté foutraque. Godard est un type qui ose.

  13. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    A self(reflexively)-confessed failure that does more than most "successful" films -- an essay-film in the truest sense (un film qui...essaie quelque chose).

  14. telasi's rating of the film Le gai savoir

  15. Rachel Aylett's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Voila! Here, at last, is the solution to my insomnia. Almost unwatchable. Godard is the only major film maker I can't stand - Pasolini is just bearable. Two communists. They're not right in the head you know.

  16. Roshan Abeysekera's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Although I like the general look of this film essay, especially the weird splicings of old recording conjoined with archive footage and stock photographs, thrusted upon the viewer every couple of minutes or so, I have a strong distaste for what strikes my ears as intellectual gobbledegook and therefore couldn't take it anymore as soon as they started to mention Mao's little red book.

  17. DrFirestone's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    This film reminds a theatrical play, poetry and gives a sense of loneliness, melancholy. I somehow felt Godard's disappointment... possibly because of the growing split between the intellectual revolutionary movement and the working class that was becoming stagnant and revisionist by that time. Great cinematography and outstanding performances from Juliet Berto and Jean-Pierre Leaud!

  18. Hugo C.'s rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Un peu long, mais intéressant.

  19. Benjamin Bland's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Godard has made some great film essays. This isn't one of them. Would have made a neat short but there's not enough happening to merit the feature length.

  20. raggiodisole's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    So I get the general idea that its a film that is not a film, that narrative is bourgeois, that revolution is in the air, but I failed to make sense of it

  21. Superfrog's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Les vérités evidentes sont l'apanage de la philosophie bourgeoise ?

  22. innersmiff's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Isn't Godard supposed to be a socialist? Then why does he make his revolutionary characters so laughable?

  23. Leigh Collins's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Boring, pretentious and self-indulgent. Gets an extra star for trying something new, but Godard doesn't pull it off.

  24. Simon Brand's rating of the film Le gai savoir

    Usually I have little but Contempt for Godard, but this film left me Breathless. It follows a small Band of Outsiders; Patricia, Emile; Masculin Féminin. They say that Une Femme est une Femme, but Bertot is something else, exuding a lazy sexuality and comfortable intellectualism. That's just Two or Three Things I Know About Her. This made a nice end to my Weekend. End of Reviewing.
