Duncan Gray's rating of the film Nouvelle vague

I still say late Godard's characters quote too much, reducing themselves to vehicles for hit-and-miss aphorisms. But as a filmmaker, Godard was brilliant well beyond the 60s, and he still had his eye on the big picture. This one, a fragmented allegory of love (or is it money?) where man and woman take turns struggling for dominance, is burned into my brain as a provocative, super-saturated vision. An endless loop.
