The view of desperate braggadocio behind the "lyrical" romping is withering Full Review

[B]eneath its freewheeling, anarchic spirit, GOING PLACES is also a serious film....Its canvas is nothing less than French cinema itself...

Rating: B -- Here is an unapologetic, if infuriating, cinematic provocation that dares its audience to rationalize the orgiastic behavior on display. Governments, politicians, soldiers, and police are busy committing far greater crimes as you read these words. Full Review

... Blier's portrait of showy machismo, reflexive bad behavior and empty pleasure is his sad commentary on seventies culture. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- There are laughs in it, yes, but how could anyone take this as a comedy? Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- A great film and a great comedy, casually offensive and distinctively, hilariously male.

Product Description:

With an original title named after the French term for male genitalia (LES VALSEUSES), Bertrand Blier's early feature lets viewers know right away what they're getting into. For better or worse, Blier doesn't disappoint. Gérard Depardieu and Patrick Dewaere star in Blier's bawdy comedy as Jean-Claude and Pierrot, two drifters who roam about stealing and taking whatever women they want, usually by force. Apparently on a search for nothing in particular except to flout bourgeois values whenever possible, the shameless duo finds targets wherever they turn (including two of France's most prominent actresses, Jeanne Moreau and Isabelle Huppert). Eventually, the two stumble across an unlikely comrade in Marie-Ange (Miou-Miou), a taciturn hairdresser who exerts an oddly calming influence on the rambunctious pair. A daring blend of freewheeling comedy, rampant sex, and unabashed misogyny, Blier's film is not for the timid, but for those who like their humor crude and graphic-and who want to see Depardieu and Dewaere going head-to-head--GOING PLACES certainly won't disappoint.
