Sauve qui peut (la vie)

Posted by martinteller on September 6, 2010

I could tell you what happens in this movie, but I couldn’t tell you what it’s about… and I’m not certain Godard could, either.  I always get the feeling that if you asked him why he did certain things, he’d have all these elaborate reasons but the honest answer would just be “I dunno, it just sounded cool”.  Or maybe that’s me justifying my lack of understanding.  Still, at least he keeps the political polemic out of this one, for the most part, and doesn’t have quite so many scenes of people reading straight out of a text (the worst possible way to make a point, in my opinion).  It’s not as cold and clinical as a lot of his post-1965 work, and even if the moments don’t seem to form any coherent whole, at least they’re mostly interesting moments.  Rating: 6
