Reminds me of what a user here thought of My Dinner With Andre; sometimes I felt like stopping Jean-Luc and Jean-Pierre and shout rebuttals at them. They can play act the show trial judges and I'll be the angry old man at the park.
52 minute over-analysis of a single photo. It get's to a point where they draw parallels between The Magnificent Ambersons and the famous Hanoi Jane photo. Very ridiculous and a strange curiosity among Godard's career. No where near as great as their other Dziga Vertov Group collaboration, Tout Va Bien.
One of the most intelligent semiotic analysis ever made. From a single photo of Jane (Fonda) in Vietnam, Gordad and Gorin shows you how every image have relation of power, how the text determine the message and the importance of thinking images not just innocent and plain, but full of meaning in a capitalistic system. A practical concretization through cinema on Barthes philosophical theory.
