2 ou 3 Choses Que Je Sais D’elle… [2 or 3 Things I Know About Her] (1967)

2.5/4

Another cold intellectual exercise from Jean-Luc Godard. 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her isn’t as downright insufferable as other Godard films, and some of its ideas about the meaning of language, the syntax and decision-making of films, and the changing modernising Paris are quite interesting. Even so…they’re not all that complex. Godard’s ideas have never been that strong, and he’s far too in love with himself to realise that his theories are nothing that a bargain-basement Derrida couldn’t think up himself in five minutes. This is still one of his stronger films however, a decent essay film capable of actually leaving the viewer with something to think about instead of just empty gesture and pontification.
