Masculine Feminine

"Give us this day our television—and an automobile, but deliver us from freedom." At first, this 1966 study of "the children of Marx and Coca-Cola" seems the most casual of Jean-Luc Godard's 60s films: it consists of a series of short, discontinuous scenes—labeled "precise facts"—loosely centered on a romance between Jean-Pierre LĂ©aud and Chantal Goya, but with room for the Vietnam war and a quick recap of LeRoi Jones's Dutchman. But a closer look reveals a supple intertwining of quick shots and long takes, themes and variations—Godard is very strict in his sloppiness. An excellent film, still as fresh as the day it was made.
