“A dense visual and aural collage that I’ve seen twice and expect to see several times more.”
“Jean-Luc Godard’s The Image Book could not be more of the moment. As ephemeral as a dream… framed with an injunction to keep hope alive.”
“Momentous. A kaleidoscopic bulletin on the state of our world.”
“Visceral. A conclusive statement in this far-reaching work from one of the great media artists of the last century."
“A thrillingly dissonant, deafening synesthesia... with an unexpected urgency and visceral strangeness.”
“Radical. A Dadaist treatise on cinematic representation, violence, the fate of the world.”
“Exhilarating… cerebral. A strange, melancholy pleasure, and an open window into the world of things that worry its creator.”
“Radical and rigorous. The act of watching The Image Book feels like a process of categorization, of putting words and images into cognitive compartments so that the sensual can translate into sense.”
“Feels like a gesture of finality for this most active of cinema-thinkers and cinema-makers, but one founded in passing to us, the audience and potential image-makers ourselves, the means of understanding and therefore the possibility for change.”
