“It’s carried off with an irreverence that would delight Mel Brooks”
4/5 – Irish Times

“Hazanavicius’s film is full of stylistic nods to Godard, but is a bit of a hatchet job: it may also be accurate”
3/5 – Irish Independent

“Hazanavicius’ irreverence toward a living icon is unexpected, but appropriate. Yet the movie also pays tribute to Godard by imitating the loose playfulness of his early work”
San Francisco Chronicle

“The undeniably talented Hazanavicius has fun aping the signature flourishes of Godard’s cinematic style”
Entertainment Weekly

“The result is an entertainment of surprising liveliness”
Wall Street Journal

“The main triumph of Hazanavicius’ film is that it makes [Godard] human”

“A lightly audacious and fascinating movie”

“A superhero-style origin story for the Communist Manifesto”
4/5 – Irish Times

“It shouldn’t work, but it does, due to the intelligence of the acting and the stamina and concentration of the writing and directing”
4/5 – Guardian

“Raoul Peck is on a roll”

“Both intellectually serious and engagingly free-spirited”
New York Times

“There’s no doubt that Richard Burton gives some firepower to those famous rant speeches, arias of self-hate and rage that might otherwise be overpoweringly shrill and petulant”
4/5 – Guardian

“Tony Richardson, directing his first feature, has given it a tough, vital style which represents something new in British cinema”
Sight and Sound
