Blake P (it) wrote: Even though I'm one of Jean-Luc Godard's biggest fans, for me it's easy to say that, "La Chinoise" is one of his most pretentious and boring films. While many of his artistic sensibilities are still on display, and on many instances the film itself looks like a work of art, it often, if not always make the film worse. Using paint for blood, and pop art letters for film "parts" usually is charming, but here it's tiring. His goal is to make a social satire, and it's obvious that he was a strong supporter of Maoism, and honestly, it's infuriating. It's not necessarily offensive, but the film often instead feels like a self-pleasing, semi-documentary, and by the forty-five minute mark it's almost too much to stand. I love his films, especially "Pierrot le Fou" and "Alphaville", but "La Chinoise", often marked as the beginning of his "film essays" just isn't anything great. We follow three philosophy students, Veronique (Anne Wiazemsky), Yvonne (Juliet Berto), and Guillame (Jean-Pierre Leaud), who all support the Maoism cause, having daily meetings. But even with their day to day examinations of the cause, it becomes more and more clear that everyone involved truly doesn't understand what they're advocating. Maybe it's supposed to be funny, but "La Chinoise" fails on many levels. All of the actors are wooden, doing nothing but appearing as fixtures and acting as the guinea pigs of weird camera angles and odd lines. In his early days, Godard experimented with bits and pieces of "pop art" like this, but then it was charming and interesting. This film acts as those bits and pieces as one film, and that's its downfall. "La Chinoise" is uninteresting, pretentious, and cloying. Godard hasn't made many bad films, but this is one of them.

There are all kinds of opinions about the death penalty and it's application all over the world. Barbara Graham's story, so fresh in the minds of the movie going public in 1958, was going to be a source of controversy.Did she actually kill the widow Monahan? The film cleverly sidesteps that issue in the screenplay. What exactly was Graham's role in the botched robbery? All the people who could actually tell us are dead. Should a woman be subject to capital punishment. Ethel Rosenberg went to the electric chair on less evidence than Graham and for a crime that was not a homicide.But all these questions aside, there is one absolute in this film. Susan Hayward gave a performance that must have been inspired by the angels. From the first half of the film dealing with her early life, the homicide she was charged with until the second half covering her sentence and her attempts to avoid the gas chamber, Hayward will keep you glued to your seat.I can't imagine another actress in this part. She of course was the Best Actress for 1958, but in my lifetime only Hillary Swank in her role in Boys Don't Cry was the Oscar ever conceded before the envelope was opened at the ceremony. EVERYONE knew that both Hayward and Swank were winners going in, that's how good both of them were.Susan Hayward was simply the best at her job. She had a number of great parts in Fifties and a few clinkers at the height of her career. But to get the Oscar for the part that was her signature role, made the ceremonies in 1959 a great occasion.She's got a good cast of supporting players in I Want to Live, Simon Oakland, Theodore Bikel, Wesley Lau, Phillip Coolidge. But it is Hayward's film totally.A part like Barbara Graham given to an actress like Susan Hayward only comes along once or twice in a lifetime. Don't miss this one, however you feel about capital punishment.
