"What’s that music?" It’s the music of Godard’s return to (relatively) mainstream moviemaking, composed in four movements—The Imaginary, Fear, Commerce, and… Music—with Nathalie Baye and Jacques Dutronc as a kind of alter ego. "Somewhere on the screen he has captured the subtle reality of what it is to be a thinking, feeling being in these ridiculously convulsive times," wrote Andrew Sarris.
