Les Carabiniers

( 1 )

Overview

Jean-Luc Godard directed this deliberately off-putting, darkly comic satire of the futility of war, which arrives on North American DVD in this edition from Fox Lorber/Genius Entertainment. Les Carabiniers was been transferred to disc in its original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and while the image looks dark, murky and grainy throughout, in this case that's not the fault of a bad transfer or poor source elements; Godard and his cinematographer Raoul Coutard deliberately sought to give the film a shabby ...

Overview

Jean-Luc Godard directed this deliberately off-putting, darkly comic satire of the futility of war, which arrives on North American DVD in this edition from Fox Lorber/Genius Entertainment. Les Carabiniers was been transferred to disc in its original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and while the image looks dark, murky and grainy throughout, in this case that's not the fault of a bad transfer or poor source elements; Godard and his cinematographer Raoul Coutard deliberately sought to give the film a shabby look, in part so that the new footage would more readily match the newsreel footage that's interjected throughout, and viewers should be aware that the disc looks just the way the film was intended to look (and the source materials are for the most part clean and in good condition). The film's sound mix is also purposefully out of balance, with some sound effects absurdly loud, and once again the disc reflects Godard's willful sense of abrasive disconnect. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, retaining the original monophonic sound mix, and the dialogue is in French, with optional English subtitles. Bonus features include a short talk on the film (roughly fifteen minutes) from critic and film historian David Sterritt illustrated by clips from the film, as well as filmographies for Godard and his leading cast members and a page of internet web links. Les Carabiniers was controversial upon initial release and this DVD version gives a clear idea why, but it also presents a difficult film just as its creator intended, and Fox Lorber is to be congratulated for the boldness and accuracy of this release.

    Americans Are Children

    Brilliant, intoxicating. More meaning packed into brief scenes than in the entire American opus to date. Watch this, attain intellectual adulthood, and never look back. U.S.A. can save the world, but only France can fully enlighten it.
