Cinematographer style( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Belying what many think of as the technical orientation of their job, cinematographers can be remarkably loquacious, a fact evident from the beginning of the interviews with 110 prominent practitioners of the craft. The men and women interviewed are interested in discussing the aesthetics and emotional content of light, composition, movement, and color--the building blocks of the film image. Forget directors, actors, and screenwriters: based on this documentary, nobody talks as passionately or poetically about the art of film as cinematographers

(Source : jaquette)
Klute by Alan J Pakula( Visual )

16 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A laserdisc version of the film, with original theatrical trailer. This film works both as a genre entertainment - a suspense thriller in which an ex-policeman investigates the mysterious disappearance of a research scientist - and as a character study of some psychological and moral complexity. The real centre is Jane Fonda's portrayal of a high-bracket call girl, Bree, who wants to quit yet enjoys the control she exercises over her customers. Cable the murderer, and Klute are not psychologically rounded characters. They can be seen to represent the duality in Bree's nature: Cable, the malignant and unfeeling side, Klute the projection of her positive and loving feelings

2 editions published between 1971 and 2004 in German and English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
