Description:
Jean-Luc Godard's latest film, a mosaic of clips and fragments, is a kaleidoscopic bulletin on the state of our world.

Do you still remember how, long ago, we trained our thoughts? Most often we'd start from a dream. We wondered how, in total darkness, colours of such intensity could emerge within us. In a soft, low voice. Saying great things. Surprising, deep and accurate matters. Image and words. Like a bad dream written on a stormy night. Under western eyes. The lost paradises. War is here.

"As you watch The Image Book, it conjures a totemic darkness that can't be shaken off. Godard tells us that people used to want to be Faust, and now they just want to be kings. That's the difference between a world of religion and a world of chintzy power. Our world, in The Image Book, has finally caught up to Jean-Luc Godard's doom-laden dream of it. He seems to be saying that we all have a choice: to change it, or to sit back in our TV armchairs and watch." (Owen Gleiberman, Variety)
