Movies on the Verge Presents Jean-Luc Godard’s ‘Image Book’
April 18, 2019
Doors open at 7 pm, film program starts at 7:30 pm
The legendary Jean-Luc Godard adds to his influential, iconoclastic legacy with this provocative collage film essay, a vast ontological inquiry into the history of the moving image and a commentary on the contemporary world. 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
“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.”
– Amy Taubin, Artforum
“Momentous. A kaleidoscopic bulletin on the state of our world.”
– Owen Gleiberman, Variety
