I’ve never gotten anything out of his movies. They have felt constructed, faux intellectual and completely dead. Cinematographically uninteresting and infinitely boring. Godard is a fucking bore. He’s made his films for the critics. One of the movies, Masculin, féminin, was shot here in Sweden. It was mindnumbingly boring.

Hahahaha. That’s a bit of a strong reaction, but I have to admit, after you get over the novelty of some of his filmmaking tricks, it’s easy to lose interest. A lot of the wit is superficial and stylistic (well, at least in the ones I’ve seen). However, there is a certain charm in the actors and their performances which I believe is what many people like about his films. To me, his films have always been mostly just about style. So, I suppose that kind of reaction isn’t a surprise.
