    A lot of viewers will be befuddled by this non-linear piece of storytelling and commentary. But like many works of art In Praise of Love is more rewarding with each viewing. I've seen it three times, and will go back again if I have the opportunity.

    Gives no indication that Jean-Luc Godard has anything left to say that is worth hearing, no indication that he has any drive or passion to continue making movies. What's on the screen is habit -- accomplished, rote, empty.
  2. This is a twilight film, full of sorrow yet lyrical, beautiful, and dark.

    Think of it as the rantings of a grouchy old man (he's 71) who for half a century has resisted all efforts to dumb down his movies, insisting instead on making them HIS way and no other.
