  1. Ghostman's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    Vladimir and Rosa is a brilliant satire by Godard, in his Maoist period, that deals with the Chicago 8 and their unjust trial. It's Godard at the peak of his filmmaking powers and one of his best films. Truly Marxist cinema.

  2. Jason's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    Eee, V. I. Lenin and Rosa Luxemburg nowhere to be found, no, rather we have Groupe Dziga Vertov making -- surprise, surprise -- their, what, Frank Tashlin movie? The girl can't help it, friend. And God bless her. No, no. This is the ultimate frame around a frame in reference to (stop-the-presses timely circa 1970) political theatre. Godard and Gorin found themselves. Dialectical (hijinks) materialism (pratfalls).

  3. Ralph Melcher's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    The best and most accessible of the Dziga Vertov films. By structuring the narrative around an actual event (the Chicago 8 trial) and addressing the polemics directly and with a bit of humor Godard and associates create a Brechtian masterpiece that goes beyond the analysis of events in 1968 to address the perennial questions that we still face today. A resounding success in creating revolutionary cinema.

  4. William R Clark's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    It's still Godard the aesthetic inventor, the didactic comedian, the clown who dares us to prefer reading books to watching movies. A quasi-apology (because he doesn't go out and say it) to the womanizing culture he sometimes perpetuates is buried in here, too, in the great scene where a man becomes the dummy to the feminist puppet master. Methinks this didactic tone could feel more acceptable in the age of youtube.

  5. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    More tolerable than some cinematic indulgences that have Godard's name attached, this at least has some humour throughout that I could appreciate, with the more absurd moments helping me to get through the lame attempts to be shocking.

  6. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    Godard's revolutionary essay is a biting satire on the nature of power and a critique of the fascists who control the mainstream narrative and culture.

  7. Kevin's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    One of Godard’s most playful. 1 way to get Godard, in making his 2014 3d work, Goodbye to Language, found the current 3d process bad and changed it. The result is pure Godard. Artful, not arrogant. Wow, youthful film, Berto & Wiazemsky gone… The message pure present, a country where a supreme ct. is stacked by the open delay of process. Even rule of law absent. Where will it end???

  8. Raymond Likes Subtitles's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    Not entirely successful but God Juliet Berto makes a cool, sexy revolutionary.

  9. Jeremy Ashlyn's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    Godard hits fresh strides rounding the corner of the 60's- a time when his films are increasingly dismissed as "transitional period", political propaganda or worse. These early 70's films demand a new interpretation within the bounds of his oeuvre. He is basically laying the groundwork for video art.

  10. chanandre's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

  11. João Eça's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    Revolutionary cinematographical forms. Absolute cinema, absolute marxist art.

  12. Michel Poiccard's rating of the film Vladimir and Rosa

    Brutal sátira contra la "justicia" burguesa. Another master piece of Godard.
