Slightly Offended's Profile
|Display Name:||Slightly Offended|
I enjoyed this post, but... "He's not exactly the most likable person — he's been called a leftist, Marxist, misogynist, and even an anti-Semite." He's been called a leftist! Well, duh. And how exactly does that make him hard to like? I would certainly dispute that "Marxists" are per se unlikable (and Godard was certainly interested in Marx, as were most cultural producers at the time), but I guess some reasonable people might disagree. But if you think that even "leftist" is in the same category as "misogynist" or "anti-semitic", that's just sad. Trying to stay away from anything manifestly political (which is hard to do when writing about Godard, I guess) apparently sometimes just lays bare people's prejudices.
