A Cinema of Loneliness

£4.99

Product description

In the twentieth anniversary edition, Kolker continues and expands his inquiry into the phenomenon of cinematic representation of culture by updating and revising the chapters on Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Robert Altman, and Steven Spielberg to include their most important works since 1988 and re-examine their earlier films. Kolker writes a shorter profile of Arthur Penn's career followed by a new comparative study of Oliver Stone, who mirrors Penn's earlier works such as "Bonnie and Clyde" by examining the political-social milieu of the '80s and '90s and drawing his films out of historical and ideological currents. Kolker analyses '90s films which have made important advances in the directors' careers and cause for rethinking the films that precede them. This edition includes a new preface, updated filmography and 48 images from various films discussed through the text.

An excellent work of film criticism, and as such, demands response and debate....Kolker's analyses of each director's work...are stimulating, provocative, insightful and passionate, models of film analysis."--San Francisco Review of Books

This 2000 paperback third edition of the 1980 original book is in fair condition, the binding is sound and all the inner pages are clean and unmarked.
Some of the pages have a slight bend in them at the very bottom corner and the first ten pages including the front cover are also a little bent at the bottom right hand corner. The bottom corner of the back cover is also slightly bent. The book was originally printed in the USA on acid free paper.
