Timeless portrait of '60s chaos
Now back in a fresh 35 mm print at the Siskel Film Center, just in time for a little Thanksgiving week provocation, Jean-Luc Godard's 1967 cine-essay was "found on a dump" (as Godard puts it up front, on screen) and remains "adrift in the cosmos" (his again), while embodying "the beginning of Flamboyance, especially in cinema" (as one character says in the film itself). It is impudence incarnate. And it will never date.
