Do you still remember how, long ago, we trained our thoughts? Most often we'd start from a dream. We wondered how, in total darkness, colours of such intensity could emerge within us. In a soft, low voice. Saying great things. Surprising, deep and accurate matters. Image and words. Like a bad dream written on a stormy night. Under western eyes. The lost paradises. War is here.

Another infuriatingly incomprehensible Godard movie made up entirely out of archival images... Having said that, some of the imagery is powerful.

Is The Image Book really a film? Godard himself has re-engineered it as an art installation, to be shown on a TV.

A rumination on art, politics, history, and mankind's eternal folly disguised as a cinematic collage. It's plotless but it has shape; random but with purpose.
