"Godard, one of the most important filmmakers in the history of film, has received very little critical attention of late. A serious study of Godard’s recent work is due. This volume is exactly the book that is needed. It keeps faith with Godard’s past work, examines his recent work, and discusses the controversial aspects of that recent work in specific, historically informed, intellectually rigorous terms." Marian Keane, University of Colorado at Boulder
"This is a splendid book. To my delight and surprise, it is far richer and more complex than its title would suggest. I had anticipated a book that might contribute to an understanding of the one filmHail Maryin an elaborate way, and with luck more generally to Godard studies. Instead, what you have here is a book that accomplishes these tasks but much more as well. Almost every page of the essay section of the book has something fundamental to say about film, about the attachments and detachments of cinema in general and Godard’s movies in particular. The book has important things to say about gender, sexuality, and sensibility."Helene Keyssar, University of California, San Diego
