Twitter Capsule: Adulthood as null state. Love without object or subject. Resistance. Time. Pointed meditations without pedantry.

VOR:   Widely seen as the filet of Godard's late experimental-essay period. Demanding but not impenetrable. Innovation, skepticism, outrage persist in different forms than in 60s or 70s work.
