Right on the verge: Jean-Luc Godard's 'In Praise of Love'

We can only be grateful that he has, for no one on the planet can put music and image together as powerfully, as subtly, as tellingly as Godard. In terms of what his future may hold, one can't help wishing for a return to the engagement with life in Numéro Deux (1975), or to the hellion comedy of First Name: Carmen (1984) and Hail Mary (1988). On the other hand, in this blighted era, Praise's near-autistic hunk of embattled aestheticism--its elegy to elegy--is praiseworthy enough.
