Goodbye to Language 3-D (Adieu au langage)
Dir. Jean-Luc Godard. 2014, 70 mins. DCP. Presented in Dolby Digital 3-D. With Héloise Godet, Kamel Abdeli, Richard Chevallier. Veteran rule-breaker Jean-Luc Godard continues to stretch cinema to its limits with this radical essay film, which deploys 3-D technology in retina-astounding new ways. In typical Godardian fashion, the film, which is centered around the relationship between a man and a married woman as seen through the eyes of the director’s dog, encompasses everything from Mary Shelley to Hollywood cinema to imperialism, while expounding on the failures of language. A mind-bending visual and intellectual experience, the 83-year-old master has made the year’s most vital film.
