Overview

A collaged interpretation of Shakespeare’s King Lear. Everything returns to normal after Chernobyl. That is, everything but art. Most of the great works are lost, and it is up to people like William Shakespear Junior the Fifth to restore the lost artwork of the human race.

Review

One of the characteristics of Godard's films is that their tendencies have been constantly changing. And they can be divided into three categories: films representing Nouvelle Vague, political and militant films, and recent films in which cinema and its history, world history, and personal stories are discussed together in the form of an essay. His films in the 1980s show turbulent changes, and have detailed and complex narratives like in Every Man for Himself (1980), Hail Mary (1985), and Detective (1985). King Lear was a film from this period, and it shocked those who expected a faithful adaptation of Shakespeare. One of the elements that complete the film's oddity is the appearance of Molly Ringwald, Leos Carax, Woody Allen, and Norman Mailer, but it cannot be overlooked that producers Yoram Globus and Menahem Golan, who were called the "kings of action movies" in the 1980s, were in charge of production.
