The legendary Jean-Luc Godard adds to his influential legacy with this provocative collage film essay, a vast inquiry into the history of the moving image and a commentary on the contemporary world. Displaying an encyclopedic grasp of cinema and its history, Godard pieces together fragments and clips from some of the greatest films of the past, then digitally alters, bleaches, and washes them, all in the service of reflecting on what he sees in front of him and what he makes of the dissonance that surrounds him. Winner of the first special Palme d’Or to be awarded in the history of the Cannes Film Festival. – Piers Handling

Reviews

A dense visual and aural collage that I’ve seen twice and expect to see several times more.
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
Jean-Luc Godard’s The Image Book could not be more of the moment. As ephemeral as a dream… framed with an injunction to keep hope alive.
– Amy Taubin, Artforum
