This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Given the often mindless films that now rule the multiplex, where everything is constant action, motion, and violence in a constant barrage of computer-generated frenzy, Ira Jaffe's thoughtful, peaceful, transcendental book is a breath of fresh air, highlighting more contemplative, insightful films, offering a useful antidote to the nonstop kineticism of mainstream modern cinema.

Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe:

"In all film there is the desire to capture the motion of life, to refuse immobility," Agnes Varda has noted. But to capture the reality of human experience, cinema must fasten on stillness and inaction as much as motion. Slow Movies investigates movies by acclaimed international directors who in the past three decades have challenged mainstream cinema's reliance on motion and action. More than other realist art cinema, slow movies by Lisandro Alonso, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Pedro Costa, Jia Zhang-ke, Abbas Kiarostami, Cristian Mungiu, Alexander Sokurov, Bela Tarr, Gus Van Sant and others radically adhere to space-times in which emotion is repressed along with motion; editing and dialogue yield to stasis and contemplation; action surrenders to emptiness if not death.

Über den Autor:
