Godard’s The Image Book (France)


The reclusive eighty-eight-year-old Jean-Luc Godard (the only French New Wave director still alive) continues to practice his enigmatic art. In this most recent work, he probes topics that have preoccupied his later years — the state of film aesthetics, the discourse between history, painting, and cinema, and the boundaries between filmmaking and other forms of image making — all of which then shape a broad philosophical inquiry into the state of the modern world. “Godard pieces together fragments, clips them 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 and what he makes of the dissonance that surrounds him” — Piers Handling. (Jean-Luc Godard, 2018, subtitles, 90 minutes)
