Jonathan Rosenbaum, the critic whom Jean-Luc Godard described as the most important writer on film since André Bazin, has included En Attendant Godard among his Top Five Films of 2009 in Sight & Sound magazine.

Rosenbaum describes the film thus:

This nervy, brand new feature is an excellent work of Godard criticism (with glancing look-ins at Resnais, Haneke and Cassavetes) that goes beyond detailed pastiche to forge a creative application of 1960s and early ’70s Godard across a tour through portions of western Europe. An inquiry, in short, into how Godard’s example might inform and apply to contemporary film-making.
