  1. Blends a love of semi-trashy pop entertainment with a love of poetry, art and high moral seriousness. It's a young person's movie (Godard was 34 and Karina 24 in 1964) that retains its mysterious pull even as the film and we get older.
  2. Exhilarating doses of style, imagination, and sheer energy.
  3. 90
    Easily the most brilliant of the genuflections bestowed on the American gangster movie by the French New Wave.
  4. The wonderful thing about Band of Outsiders is that the daring elements that jazzed audiences then have the same power to intoxicate all these years later.

    This remains one of Godard's most appealing and underrated films, relatively relaxed and strangely optimistic.
