Concepts in film theory by Dudley Andrew( )

28 editions published between 1977 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A remarkable continuation of Dudley Andrew's classic, The Major Film Theories, this work focuses on the key concepts in film study: perception, representation, signification, narrative structure, adaptation, evaluation, identification, figuration, and interpretation. Beginning with a lucid introductory chapter on the current state of film theory, Andrew goes on to build an overall view of film, presenting his own ideas on each concept, and giving a sense of the interdependence of these concepts. By providing lively explanations of theories that involve perceptual psychology and structuralism, semiotics and psychoanalysis, hermeneutics and genre study, Andrew offers unique observations on these often obscure topics, allowing readers to acquire the background they need to enrich their understanding of film--and of art

What is cinema? by André Bazin( )

21 editions published between 1971 and 2005 in English and held by 1,338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Bazin's What Is Cinema? (volumes I and II) have been classics of film studies for as long as they've been available and are considered the gold standard in the field of film criticism. Although Bazin made no films, his name has been one of the most important in French cinema since World War II. He was co-founder of the influential Cahiers du Cinema, which under his leadership became one of the world's most distinguished publications. Championing the films of Jean Renoir (who contributed a short foreword to Volume I), Orson Welles, and Roberto Rossellini, he became the protege of Francois Truffaut, who honors him touchingly in his forword to Volume II. This new edition includes graceful forewords to each volume by Bazin scholar and biographer Dudley Andrew, who reconsiders Bazin and his place in contemporary film study. The essays themselves are erudite but always accessible, intellectual, and stimulating. As Renoir puts it, the essays of Bazin "will survive even if the cinema does not.""--PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Andre Bazin's new media by André Bazin( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

André Bazin’s writings on cinema are among the most influential reflections on the medium ever written. Even so, his critical interests ranged widely and encompassed the “new media” of the 1950s, including television, 3D film, Cinerama, and CinemaScope. Fifty-seven of his reviews and essays addressing these new technologies--their artistic potential, social influence, and relationship to existing art forms--have been translated here for the first time in English with notes and an introduction by leading Bazin authority Dudley Andrew. These essays show Bazin’s astute approach to a range of visual media and the relevance of his critical thought to our own era of new media. An exciting companion to the essential What Is Cinema? volumes, André Bazin’s New Media is excellent for classroom use and vital for anyone interested in the history of media.--Publisher website

Breathless : Jean-Luc Godard, director by Jean-Luc Godard( Book )

19 editions published between 1960 and 1998 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Breathless, a low-budget film, came to be regarded as one of the major accomplishments of the French New Wave cinema of the early sixties. It had a tremendous influence on French filmmakers and on world cinema in general. Beyond its significance in film history, it was also a film of considerable cultural impact. Young students and film enthusiasts today continue to try to outdo one another in their Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg imitations, just as Belmondo himself in the film had rendered his own version of Bogart and Gabin. In Breathless, Jean-Luc Godard captured the spirit of a disillusioned generation and fashioned a style, which drew on the past, to parade that disillusionment. In his introduction, Dudley Andrew explains what Godard set out to accomplish twenty-seven years ago. He illuminates the intertextual and cultural references of the film and the tensions within it between tradition and innovation. This volume also features, for the first time in English, the complete and accurate continuity script of Breathless, together with François Truffaut's surprisingly detailed original treatment. Also included are an in-depth selection of reviews and criticism in French and English; a brief biographical sketch of the director's life that covers the development of his career, as well as a filmography and selected bibliography

What cinema is! : Bazin's quest and its charge by Dudley Andrew( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and French and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What Cinema Is! offers an engaging answer to Andre Bazin's famous question through a sweeping look back over the phenomenal ascendancy of a certain idea of cinema. Written by one of the foremost film scholars of our time, this provocative volume proclaims cinema's distinct value not just for the last century but for our current audio–visual culture. Whatever cinema may yet become, this unique idea should orient and guide it. Examining cinema's institutions and its social force but always through the qualities of key films 'What Cinema Is!' testifies to the power of something that didn't even exist before 1895. From the art films cherished by cinephiles after World War II through the banner years of the New Wave to a technologically expanded cinema, Andrew traces the long nerve of this idea that has made cinema supremely alive to (and in) our times
Saikaku ichidai onna( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in Japanese and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 17th-century Japan, a samurai's daughter, Oharu, falls in love with a servant. Caught together, the man is beheaded and Oharu and her family are exiled. After enduring further misfortunes as a concubine, a courtesan, wife, and prostitute, Oharu becomes a mendicant nun in her old age. A peerless chronicler of the soul who specialized in supremely emotional, visually exquisite films about the circumstances of women in Japanese society throughout its history, Kenji Mizoguchi (Ugetsu) had already been directing movies for decades when he made The Life of Oharu in 1952
Roland Barthes' cinema by Philip Watts( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most famous name in French literary circles from the late 1950s till his death in 1981, Roland Barthes maintained a contradictory rapport with the cinema. As a cultural critic, he warned of its surreptitious ability to lead the enthralled spectator toward an acceptance of a pre-given world. As a leftist, he understood that spectacle could be turned against itself and provoke deep questioning of that pre-given world. And as an extraordinarily sensitive human being, he relished the beauty of images and the community they could bring together."--Publisher's description
Sanshô dayû by Dudley Andrew( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among Mizoguchi Kenji's unquestioned masterpieces Sansho Dayu (Sansho the Bailiff, 1954) is a version of one of Japan's most famous folk-legends. When their father is exiled to a remote outpost, Anju and Zushio are forced to flee with their mother. Kidnapped, the children are separated from her and enslaved by the malevolent Sansho. Though a reunion ends the film, it is only at the most terrible human cost." "A heartbreaking tragedy in form, rooted in elemental aspects of Japanese society, Sansho Dayu is also a modern artwork made in the aftermath of World War II, which reflects on old and new values. It was responsible as much as any other film for bringing Japanese cinema to the rapt attention of Western audiences." "Dudley Andrew and Carole Cavanaugh bring out the film's cultural, aesthetic and contextual nuances. In dialogue with each other, the authors elucidate a distinctively Japanese work that nevertheless speaks of universal themes."--Jacket
