"The Image Book" (2018) | Jean-Luc Godard - Triangle Premiere
New Releases/Global Cinema
The Image Book
(Jean Luc Godard, 2018, 84 min, Switzerland, French, English, Arabic, Italian and German, Color, DCP)
The legendary Jean-Luc Godard adds to his legacy with this ambitious collage film essay. Fans of his sprawling, multi-part Histoire(s) du Cinema series will have some idea of what to expect: a lifetime of received images, sounds, and ideas, broken down to their essentials and re-mixed into thrilling, gnomic salvos. Here, Godard’s approaches to multi-channel sound are intensely physical and often astonishing, providing a novel and disorienting form for Godard’s far-reaching inquiries into the histories of representation and global violence.
“A thrillingly dissonant, deafening synesthesia... with an unexpected urgency and visceral strangeness.”- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“A conclusive statement in this far-reaching work from one of the great media artists of the last century." - Eric Kohn, Indiewire
