"Godard's career is a difficult one to summarize or even to get a grasp on. After creating the seminal New Wave films of the Sixties we all know and love him for, Godard took a drastic turn in the late Sixties-early Seventies when he began making film within his "Dziga-Vertov" group, which were a group of didactic films that marked Godard's complete break from narrative film. After that dead-end, Godard made many beautiful and interesting documentary-theoretical films throughout the Seventies (the best being Numero Deux, Ici Et Ailleurs & Tout Va Bien). He returned to more narrative cinema in the 80's beginning with the little-seen "SAUVE QUI PEUT (LA VIE)". I find most of his 80's films to be pretty weak, besides some good ones up until 1985 or so. My whole point with this rant is that Godard seems to have had an artistic re-awakening in the 90's. Starting with "Nouvelle Vague" in 1990, Godard's Nineties films rank up with some of his best work in the early days. Although I prefer his more recent "In Praise of Love" to this, but I love them both and say that they should be essential viewing for any world cinema buffs. GODARD=CINEMA!"
Great late Godard film

"I wasn't so impressed with "In Praise of Love", but "Forever Mozart" is incredible. Godard certainly is still relevent today, even if filmgoers increasingly turn away from him for not making a-b-c easy Hollywood films. Check this out and keep and open mind and you should enjoy this thoughtful film."
