Too touchy-feely for some hardcore Godardians, "Notre Musique" is the most lucid of the master's recent films. More gnarly Godard may be found in "Moments Choisis des Histoire(s) du Cinéma", showing twice more as part of MOMA's opening extravaganza. An 85-minute distillation of his fin de siècle magnum opus, the five-hour, eight-part video "Histoire(s) du Cinéma", the heavily encoded Moments is another installation in Godard's long goodbye. The artist merges film and video as well as painting and cinema. Earnest stars rush the camera amid a flickering thaumascope effect. Moments might be an Oscar-night clip-fest doc transmitted from an unknown galaxy. "Not half a dozen men have ever been able to keep the whole equation of pictures in their heads," Fitzgerald wrote in "The Last Tycoon". Godard is one of them.

Comments Depending on what was shot with and what was shot, the quality of the image varies. But judging from the best material, the image is superb. Colours are strong, blacks are deep and solid, details are range from good to razor sharp. There are signs of macro blocking and edge enhancements, but only when zooming in. This is a great image.

Sound is the basic 2.0 Dolby Digital. Optimum has not added the 5.1 Dolby Digital track. A bit of a shame, as the 5.1 track really makes the orchestral score come to live. Still, dialogue is crystal clear.

There are no extras, except trailers for other Optimum Godard releases.
