Instead, we're firmly in what we might call Godard's "aesthetic phase." This has two meanings. The first is that we're in the era of Godard's increasing obsession with the beauty of nature. For Ever Mozart gives us some lovely images to look at. Godard is a master of framing, and the theatrical plot gives him every excuse to provide us with striking tableaux. The other important meaning behind "aesthetic" in this case is a reference to philosophy, which also increasingly occupies Godard throughout the eighties and nineties. From his dialogue—which often sounds like a philosophical text—to his allusions to philosophy, For Ever Mozart draws on and explicitly references a host of other cultural artifacts to fuel Godard's reflection on cinema and Sarajevo. Godard demands that we follow him, catching what allusions we can, forming the pieces with our ability to take in the beautiful imagery, and ultimately piecing together a film that is as much our film as Godard's.
Looking back, I think critics have dismissed For Ever Mozart for being Godard-by-numbers. It has all the things we expect from Godard except something surprising.Read more ›
"For Ever Mozart" is as good as any of Godard's famous 60's films and better than many. It is a beautiful meditation on the value of art, film and music in society and well worth owning for any cinephile.
