Carl Theodor Dreyer's Gertrud the moving word by James Schamus( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If there is one film in the canon of Carl Theodor Dreyer that can be said to be, as Jacques Lacan might have put it, his most "painfully enjoyable," it is Gertrud. The film's Paris premier in 1964 was covered by the Danish press as a national scandal; it was lambasted on its release for its lugubrious pace, wooden acting, and old-fashioned, stuffy milieu. To make vivid just what was at stake for Dreyer, and still for us, in his final work, James Schamus follows a trail of references and allusions back through a number of thinkers and artists to reveal the richness and depth of Dreyer's work. Gertrud serves as a locus for Dreyer's twin fixations - on written texts, and on the heroines who both embody and free themselves from them."--Jacket

Lust, caution : the story, the screenplay, and the making of the film by Ailing Zhang( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major motion picture from Oscar-winning director Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Brokeback Mountain): an intensely passionate story of love and espionage, set in Shanghai during World War II. In the midst of the Japanese occupation of China and Hong Kong, two lives become intertwined: Wong Chia Chi, a young student active in the resistance, and Mr. Yee, a powerful political figure who works for the Japanese occupational government. As these two move deftly between Shanghai's tea parties and secret interrogations, they become embroiled in the complicated politics of wartime ' and in a mutual attraction that may be more than what they expected. Written in lush, lavish prose, and with the tension of a political thriller, Lust, Caution brings 1940s Shanghai artfully to life even as it limns the erotic pulse of a doomed love affair.
