THE IMAGE BOOK / LE LIVRE D’IMAGE (N/C 15+)

 

Jean-Luc Godard reprises many of his familiar ideas, but with an unexpected urgency and visceral strangeness. It’s an essay film with the body-language of a horror movie, avowedly taking Godard’s traditional concerns with the ethical status of cinema and history and looking to the Arab world and indirectly examining our Orientalism – Godard cites the Conradian phrase for a culture held “under Western eyes”. The veteran auteur has assembled a mosaic of clips and fragments that will engage, perplex and bemuse. Recipient of a Special Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
