alt "Mr. Godard has a habit of blending gravity with whimsy. His latest film, a 70-minute 3-D visual essay, exhibits the formal and philosophical mischief that has been his late-career calling card. It is baffling and beautiful, a flurry of musical and literary snippets arrayed in counterpoint to a series of brilliantly colored and hauntingly evocative pictures."
-- A.O. Scott, The New York Times
