So glad I don't have to see: Film Socialism

"The parrots are among a handful of animals that appear in the movie, which had its press premiere Monday morning at the Cannes Film Festival, including a pair of hilariously talkative cats (whose meows are, in turn, parroted by a young woman watching them on a laptop), as well as a llama and a donkey. Surrounding these animals is a menagerie of talking, quoting, babbling human beings, speaking in French, German, Russian, English and Arabic, among other tongues.... Wittily, perversely, contrastingly, the final words in the movie are “no comment." — NY Times review of the new Jean-Luc Godard film, Film Socialism
I don't think so. Beautiful still though.
