Review
Godard's brilliant dialectical farce in which five Parisian students, members of a Maoist cell, discuss the implications of the Chinese Cultural Revolution and the chances of using terrorism to effect a similar upheaval in the West. Dazzlingly designed as a collage of slogans and poster images, it was criticised at the time for playing with politics. But Godard was well aware what he was doing and his film stands as a prophetic analysis of events of May 1968 in all their desperate sincerity and impossible na´vetÚ.
