On honeymoon with his new bride, Susan, Mexican-born police officer Mike Vargas agrees to investigate a car bombing. In so doing, he incurs the wrath of local police chief Hank Quinlan, a corrupt, bullying behemoth with a perfect arrest record. Vargas suspects that Quinlan has planted evidence to win his past convictions, and he is not about to let the suspect in the current case be railroaded. Determined to get Vargas out of his hair, Quinlan makes a deal with local crime boss Uncle Joe Grandi to frame Susan on a drug rap. Dissecting the nature of good and evil in a hallucinatory, nightmarish ambiance, this baroque south-of-the-border mystery opens with one of the most remarkably extended long takes in movie history

In the blink of an eye : a perspective on film editing by Walter Murch ( Book )
15 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the Blink of an Eye is editor Walter Murch's essay of film editing. Starting with what might seem to be the most basic editing question - Why do cuts work? - he treats the reader to a marvelous "ride" through the esthetics and practical concerns of cutting film. Along the way, he offers his insights on such subjects as continuity and discontinuity in editing, dreaming, and real life; the criteria of a good cut; and the blink of the eye as both an analog to and an emotional cue for the cut. New to this second edition is Murch's lengthy meditation on the current state of digital editing."--BOOK JACKET

Curzio Malaparte, an Italian born with a German heritage, was a journalist, dramatic, novelist and diplomat. In 1941, he was sent to cover the Eastern Front as a correspondent for the Milano daily newspaper, and his dispatches reverberated among readers as painfully real depictions of a landscape at war. Murch first came across Curzio Malaparte's writings in a chance encounter in a French book about cosmology, and was so taken by the strange, utterly captivating imagery he went to find the book from which the story was taken, leading to this body of work never before available to English readers
