Band Of Outsiders Review


Jean-Luc Godard's Band of Outsiders isn't his best work, but it's full of interesting little touches and stolen moments that make it worthwhile. Most notable is the smashing Anna Karina's performance, which glues together a tepid, self-confessed dime-store novel-class story of Karina and two friends (Sami Frey and Claude Brasseur) who hatch a harebrained plan to rob Karina's aunt. A pair of set pieces -- the trio dancing in unison in a bar and their famous 9-minute, 43-second run through the Louvre -- make the movie worthwhile alone, but the disjointed, meandering, and somewhat random narrative isn't anything to write home about.

Aka Bande à part.
