Jean-Luc Godard is a great film maker. I'm a fan, PIERROT LE FOU and BANDE A PARTE are among my all time favourite films. However I'm not a devotee who blindly worships all the great man's work. A good chunk of it is simply terrible.; TWO OR THREE THINGS is part of that chunk. It's awful. One of the most boring and singularly pointless movies I've ever sat right the way through. There is no plot as such but there is a good deal of political preaching and there is the most irritating whispered voice-over.
The cinematography is largely excellent although, in Godardian-style, some of the framing is a bit weird. Of course it doesn't help that Godard's muse (and ex wife) Anna Karina isn't cast, I think she was working on Godard's (far more interesting) MADE IN USA in the afternoons while he shot TWO OR THREE THINGS in the morning? If that's the case (I'm sure I have read this but can't find a reference at the moment) then it highlights how even a prolific film maker of Godard's stature couldn't pull off two accomplished films made simultaneously. Karina, one of the truly great movie actresses of her generation, might have made this a more watch-able film but it's incoherent story line and endless sermonizing gives it no chance of being any good.
