- Critics' reviews
"One of the quintessential '60s foreign art films, a bizarre melange of pop music, revolution, sex, movie allusions and poetry."
Michael Wilmington: Chicago Tribune
"Godard's document of youthful confusion has not aged one minute."
Kenneth Turan: Los Angeles Times
Directed by anyone else, Masculine Feminine (...) would be a masterpiece. For the young JLG it's business as usual."
J. Hoberman: Village Voice
"An excellent film, still as fresh as the day it was made."
Dave Kehr: Chicago Reader
