Filmed thought : cinema as reflective form / Robert B. Pippin

Source: US Place: Chicago Publisher: University of Chicago Press PubDate: 2020 PhysDes: 271 pages : illustrations (some colour) ; 32 cm Subject: PHILOSOPHY AND THE CINEMA; SPECTATORSHIP; REAR WINDOW (US, Alfred Hitchcock, 1954); HABLE CON ELLA [TALK TO HER] (SP, Pedro Almodovar, 2002); SHADOW OF A DOUBT (US, Alfred Hitchcock, 1943); CHINATOWN (US, Roman Polanski, 1974); ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS (US, Douglas Sirk, 1955); JOHNNY GUITAR (US, Nicholas Ray, 1954); IN A LONELY PLACE (US, Nicholas Ray, 1950); THIN RED LINE, THE (US, Terrence Malick, 1998); DARDENNE, JEAN-PIERRE & LUC Summary: "In this book, philosopher Robert B. Pippin reveals how films can illuminate, in a concrete manner, core features of shared human life. Filmed Thought examines questions of morality in Almodovar's Talk to Her, goodness and naivete in Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt, love and fantasy in Sirk's All That Heaven Allows, politics and society in Polanski's Chinatown and Malick's The Thin Red Line, and self-understanding and understanding others in Nicholas Ray's In A Lonely Place and in the Dardenne brothers' oeuvre. In each reading, Pippin pays close attention to what makes these films exceptional as technical works of art (with an eye to cinematic irony) and as intellectual and philosophical achievements. Throughout, he shows how films offer a view of basic problems of human agency from the inside and allow viewers to think with and through them. Captivating and insightful, Filmed Thought shows us what it means to take cinema seriously not just as art, but as thought, and how this medium provides a singular form of reflection on what it is to be human." - taken from back cover.

The films of Douglas Sirk : exquisite ironies and magnificent obsessions / Tom Ryan
Jackson, Mississippi: University Press of Mississippi, .
Call No: 81SIR RYA Author: Ryan, Tom Source: US Place: Jackson, Mississippi Publisher: University Press of Mississippi PubDate:  PhysDes: 309 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm Subject: FILM; GERMANY; CRITICISM; DIRECTORS; SIRK, DOUGLAS; ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS (US, Douglas Sirk, 1955); WRITTEN ON THE WIND (US, Douglas Sirk, 1956); IMITATION OF LIFE (US, Douglas Sirk, 1959) Summary: "Best known for powerful 1950s melodramas like All That Heaven Allows, Written on the Wind, The Tarnished Angels, and Imitation of Life, Douglas Sirk (1897-1987) brought to all his work a distinctive style that led to his reputation as one of twentieth-century film's great directors. Sirk worked in Europe during the 1930s, mainly for Germany's UFA studios, and then in America in the 1940s and '50s. The Films of Douglas Sirk: Exquisite Ironies and Magnificent Obsessions provides an overview of his entire career, including Sirk's work on musicals, comedies, thrillers, war movies, and westerns. One of the great ironists of the cinema, Sirk believed rules were there to be broken. Whether defying the decrees of Nazi authorities trying to turn film into propaganda or arguing with studios that insisted characters' problems should always be solved and that endings should always restore order, what Sirk called "emergency exits" for audiences, Sirk always fought for his vision. Offering fresh insights into all of the director's films and situating them in the culture of their times, critic Tom Ryan also incorporates extensive interview material drawn from a variety of sources, including his own conversations with the director. Furthermore, his enlightening study undertakes a detailed reconsideration of the generally overlooked novels and plays that served as sources for Sirk's films, as well as providing a critical survey of previous Sirk commentary, from the time of the director's "rediscovery" in the late 1960s up to the present day." -- Provided by publisher.
