Poster for The Image Book

The latest oddity from filmmaking legend Jean-Luc Godard, which became the first film ever to be awarded Cannes's Spéciale Palme d'Or. More

As with his previous idiosyncratic, often inscrutable late works, this will be seen only by a highly select audience of dedicated Godardians, and genuinely liked by just a fraction of those; one can essentially name them.
