With her at the villa are Kip, a young Sikh bomb-disposal expert, and a shadowy thief with bandaged hands named Caravaggio.

In the blink of an eye : a perspective on film editing by Walter Murch( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 925 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."--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
