4.0 out of 5 stars One of Godard's lesser known masterpieces, 5 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hélas Pour Moi [DVD] (DVD)
Although Godard himself has publicly denounced this film, Helas Pour Moi at the time of is release in 1993 and today still shows the enfant terrible of the French New Wave maintaining relevancy in a shifting world where art and cinema have undeniably separated and has sense found its way into the bed of entertainment.

And Godard (like Brecht) forever wishes to remind his audience that they're only watching a film, and that film is an expression of art; and in this case it's his.

Helas Pour Moi is a film much like others from this period - a wash of text on screen and from the actors, bites of classical music, and a saturation of colours and images all corresponding with Godard's view that you're not watching his work to be entertained, rather to be informed. If there was a plot in this film, I've yet to find it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterful Anthology, 5 July 2011
Kenneth Anger's films are much like the man himself - a strange mess of mythology, fantasy in a kaleidoscopic world. The BFI have created a definitive collection of one of America's lesser-known, yet highly respected film-makers of the past 60 years. We the viewer not only benefit from having his commercially available films on Blu-Ray but also commentary and reflections from Anger himself which provides words to otherwise silent films dotted with popular and avant-garde music. MAGIC LANTERN CYCLE: THE FILMS OF KENNETH ANGER shows the greatness of post-war American avant-garde cinema while offering glimpses of where directors like David Lynch took Anger's strange worlds and brought them to a brighter light.
