The Image Book

Le livre d'image

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard
Switzerland, France, 2018

  • English


Jean-Luc Godard returns with a bracing, beautiful and confrontational essay film. Splicing together classic film clips and newsreel footage, often stretched, saturated and distorted almost beyond recognition, The Image Book interrogates our relationship with film, culture and global politics.

Our take

Now in his seventh decade of filmmaking, Jean-Luc Godard continues to surprise and provoke us. Winner of the first-ever Special Palme d’Or at Cannes, The Image Book is a riotous whirlwind of images and sounds whose inventive brilliance proves that the New Wave legend is as revolutionary as ever.

The Image Book Directed by Jean-Luc Godard
A head-scratcher and a mind-bender, The Image Book . . . is gloriously obscure and brutally unpretty, yet lucid and even gorgeous all the same.

A work of such stabbing angularity, exorbitant allusiveness, unyielding digression, and exhausting doom that the film’s sole justification, the thing that joins and stabilizes all the rattling fragments, is the totemic allure of a name: Godard.

A dense and cryptic essay film in the vein of his magnum opus, Histoire(s) du Cinéma (1988-’98).
