Nature of Film. The Redemption of Physical Reality.

£19.99

Product description

Dobson, D 1961. Kracauer, S. Book Condition: Very Good. DJ Condition: Good. Price-Clipped and shelf worn with one large tear. Inside pages clean and bright with tight binding. Illustrated with black and white photos.

This significant study is certain to be the standard work on the subject for many years to come. It demonstrates once and for all that motion pictures differ radically from the traditional arts, and that good plays or novels rarely make good films. Dr Kracauer is concerned with film as a photographic medium uniquely equipped to capture and reveal the everyday world as it exists before our eyes. "If film is an art" he writes, "it is an art with a difference. It fulfills itself in rendering 'the ripple of leaves',...street crowds, involuntary gestures, and other fleeting impressions".

Nature of film is an intellectual experience which reaches far beyond film into the realm of general aesthetics and philosophy.
