Critic Reviews for Numero Deux

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Numero Deux, which is technically stunning, offers no answers, only paradoxes, but in those paradoxes there exists the possibility of increased self-awareness.

In many respects, this is a film about reverse angles and all that they imply; it forms one of Godard's richest and most disturbing meditations on social reality.

Situates the loss of memory and the birth of signification on the same dark and slippery but fertile terrain-a factory-landscape where anything becomes possible.

It's intelligent, often brilliant, and sometimes technically groundbreaking, but also infuriating, baffling, and even repellent.
