"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 produc... read more

"Private detective Lemmy Caution visits the strange city of Alphaville on an unnamed planet where creativity and emotion have been outlawed Well I was looking forward to this - I like scifi and surreal stuff and can endure slow films...BUT it was a snooze-fest most of the time. It was well shot and kind of weird but too pretentious...Oh and having everything look like 1960s France was laughable Interesting idea just poorly executed imho http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mE_sjuYvd0o"

“"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
