Legendary director Jean-Luc Godard returns to the screen with Film Socialisme, a magisterial essay on the decline of European civilization. Presented as a symphony in three movements, a garish cruise ship (with Patti Smith among its guests) travels the Mediterranean while Godard embarks on a state of the European Union address in a vibrant collage of philosophical quotes, historical revelations, and pure cinematographic beauty.
“Godard’s cinema can be rigorous and galvanizing as anyone familiar with his 1960s output would agree. Forty years on, he’s as troubled as ever with our subservience to the world’s military-industrial-corporate nexus. And he’s still the same cinematic prankster that he was in the ‘60s—toying with the clichés of genre and shattering formal expectations.” —Moving Pictures Network.com
