as a fan (or at least admirer) of all the Godard I've seen so far, I may have reached the point where his talent as a stylist is no longer entertaining enough. I feel like I've seen every trick now, the same themes, characters, one-note cleverness and pastiche literary dialogue.

so despite a cogent narrative and classic dystopian theme here, I couldn't muster a huge reception.
