"Godard's big-budget contribution to one of my very favorite genres - films about the process of filmmaking. For me it’s one of the very greatest, along with Minnelli's TWO WEEKS IN ANOTHER TOWN, Fellini's 8 1/2, and Fassbinder's BEWARE OF A HOLY WHORE. With a mesmerizing cast and plot, in gorgeous technicolor and cinemascope."
