Reviews and Quotes 2

"Karina is, like Louise Brooks, one of those pure creatures of the movies, so direct and piercing that she transcends the limits of technology and
the chasm of decades." 
— Charles Taylor, Village Voice

“A reverie 
of a gangster movie!" 
— Pauline Kael

"Band of Outsiders shows Godard at his most amusing, and that is
no small thing.”
