Personally, I never got this hipster…. Apparently these greats didn’t either.Werner Herzog on Jean-Luc Godard:“Someone like Jean-Luc Godard is for me intellectual counterfeit money when compared to a good kung-fu film.” 

Orson Welles on Jean-Luc Godard:
“His gifts as a director are enormous. I just can’t take him very seriously as a thinker — and that’s where we seem to differ, because he does. His message is what he cares about these days, and, like most movie messages, it could be written on the head of a pin.”
Ingmar Bergman on Jean-Luc Godard:“I’ve never gotten anything out of his movies. They have felt constructed, faux intellectual, and completely dead. Cinematographically uninteresting and infinitely boring. Godard is a fucking bore. He’s made his films for the critics. One of the movies, Masculin, Féminin, was shot here in Sweden. It was mind-numbingly boring.”
