"Alphaville / Alphaville Direção: Jean-Luc Godard Roteiro: Jean-Luc Godard Ano: 1965 Sinopse: Uma fusão inteligente de ficção científica, personagens de H.Q. e poesia surrealista. Lemmy Caution, herói intergalático, recebe a missão de matar o inventor do computador fascista Alpha 60. Uma missão nada fácil, porque a sinistra comunidade é controlada despótica e cuidadosamente pelo supercérebro eletrônico."

"Director: Jean-Luc Godard Plot: A U.S. secret agent is sent to the distant space city of Alphaville where he must find a missing person and free the city from its tyrannical ruler. I've written a full review of this movie which is worth reading if you want my analysis, but here's the thing: Alphaville is pretty freaking slow-moving, occasionally boring. You appreciate the film's various themes and satiric messages from a film critic standpoint, but as someone who likes to watch movies, I have "

“"Sometimes reality is too complex for oral communication. But legend embodies it in a form which enables it to spread all over the world."

Avid sci-fi addicts looking to check out 1965's Alphaville will likely wind up disappointed. This is not a traditional science fiction movie, but instead a hardcore Jean-Luc Godard flick carrying sci-fi undertones. Compared to a commercial product like Minority Report, Alphaville looks woefully under-produced and cheap, but only superficially. At its core, this is an thoughtful treatise on technology and society that intertwines film noir and sci-fi, and its ostensibly slipshod appearance is a part of the satirical slant. Godard originally wanted to name the film Tarzan vs. IBM, a title which perfectly encapsulates the essence of Alphaville. T” read more

My movie year 2012 (703 movies items)

"DVD George Orwell -fani tajuaa jo alussa mistä on kysymys sekä filmin tapahtumien mahdollisen ajankohdan. Pidän Alphavillessä Godardin tavasta olla syöttämättä suoraan pureskeltuja vastauksia, vaikka pointit on saatu selkeiksi ilman sanojakin. Myös kameralla leikkiminen on hauskaa, kuten tyypin mukilointi kuvan ulkopuolella ilman että mikään jää epäselväksi, lintuperspektiivistä kuvattu autokohtaus sekä kuvan muuttaminen pariin kertaan negatiiviksi. Sen sijaan mielenkiintoisen"
