King Lear Movie

I went to see Jean-Luc Godard's new film "King Lear" as a theater critic, a Godard watcher and a fan of Shakespeare's play. Godard's non-linear, jump-cut, post-modern film commentaries--he has never made "movies" in the conventional sense--inspire respect more than a fan's passion. Not at all like "Lear" the play, certainly, which always has had a real rooting section--those of us who think that it's the greatest play in English.
