Perhaps the most impressive thing about [the book] is that it's 700 large-format pages long, yet winds up seeming too short.Jonathan Rosenbaum reviews Richard Brody's Everything Is Cinema: The Working Life of Jean-Luc Godard. For me, there is only Je vous salue, Marie (1985) and one other:
Brody is clearly a Godard partisan - ready to defend the intractable Éloge de l'amour (2001) against all comers.Quite right too. Yes, intractable. Unmanageable, uncontrollable, difficult, awkward, troublesome, demanding. Does anyone else read that as a positive?
