After debuting at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Jean-Luc Godard’s latest film, “The Image Book,” has been receiving rave reviews. But even after winning the Special Palme d’Or at Cannes and being selected to play at the Toronto International Film Festival and New York Film Festival, we’re not any closer to really being able to describe the film to someone.

So, with that in mind, the trailer for Godard’s film takes on the herculean effort and, for the most part, succeeds. The trailer, much like the film itself, is a collage of various clips, images, and narration, which all speak to the current state of the world and the horrors experienced over the last century. The truth is, if you like Godard’s more recent avant-garde works, then “The Image Book” is ready for you to devour. Otherwise, if this trailer isn’t enough to sell you, we’re not sure the finished film will do it for you either.
