FRANCE , Switzerland | 84 minutes | 2018

Jean-Luc Godard’s new film, divided into several chapters, tackles the burning issues of the Arab world today. In his deep, passionate voice, the filmmaker intones quotes, questions and provocations. And as the archival videos, film clips, photos, music and the few new scenes shot by Godard in Tunisia scroll by, a kind of horrifying, tragic poetry emerges from his “image book.” Shot through with Dada touches, the master’s latest is a dizzyingly visceral experience in which he continues — at 87 — to call into question the very nature of cinema.
