Aaron Hillis
Marker's even-handedness and playful spirit tries to show that innocent art and activist politics are two sides of the same culture, even if deviant government duplicity threatens the balance between them. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
The film doesn't really manage to sustain attention through its brief running time. But it is heartening to see that the filmmaker, now in his mid-80s, is as passionately engaged as ever. Full Review
J. Hoberman
Village Voice
Approaching 85, cine-essayist Chris Marker remains as lively, engaged, and provocative as ever--and no less fond of indirection. Full Review
Jonathan Rosenbaum
Chicago Reader
I can't think of a better portrait of contemporary Paris or the zeitgeist of 2001-'04 than Chris Marker's wise and whimsical 58-minute 2004 one can film people in the street better than Marker or combine images with more grace and finesse. Full Review
Manohla Dargis
The New York Times
One can never get enough of this prodigiously talented octogenarian artist and his bestiary. Full Review
