Film essay by Jean-Luc Godard conspicuously imbued with an almost horror atmosphere.

In the Image Book can be found most of the trademarks of Godard's late work: deliberately broken sketches of connections, references to the self-reflexivity of the film medium, and uncompromising modifications of image and sound. A movie, which mixes news headlines and often digitally distorted excerpts from classic Hollywood films, points above all to the alienation and macroaggression of the contemporary world. A work that does not deny the influence of cultural theories and conceptual art is also proof that our “difficult contemporary” Jean-Luc Godard still believes in the irreplaceable role of cinema.
