Made in USA (1966) Screenshots: Godard's Timeless Take on Politics

Given the current political insanity in the US, this exchange in Jean-Luc Godard's rebellious Made in USA (1966) made me laugh, and cringe, a lot more than it would have a year ago. I've added the subtitles below each shot in case they are too difficult to read:

Left and Right are the same.

There's no changing them!

The Right...

because it's so cruel it's brainless.

The Left because it's sentimental

Left and Right are completely obsolete notions.

We shouldn't phrase things in those terms.

How then?
