Is Jean-Luc Godard still any good? At the age of 87, the French-Swiss filmmaker adamantly continues to respond to the questioning of his innovation. His most recent essay film The Image Book (Le Livre D’Image), perceives the modern world and its historical past as if through a broken stained glass window. A provocative smorgasbord piled high with references to western cinema, Middle Eastern cinema, as well as experimental treatments of sound and picture, The Image Book checks our reality in a way we have grown to admire from Godard. While this film rejects definition, deconstructs convention and ultimately meditates on meaning, it serves an aggressively steadfast intention of making the sensory political. Godard entices us with a simple poetic question in the film’s synopsis: “Do you still remember how, long ago, we trained our thoughts?”. This answer and the answer to his competency is this film. Winner of the first Special Palme d’Or to be awarded in the history of the Cannes Film Festival, The Image Book is another extraordinary addition to the French master’s vast filmography.

“A dense visual and aural collage, 
that I’ve seen twice and expect to see several times more.”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
