Call No: 631.21 BOR Author: Bordwell, David Source: US Place: Berkeley, Calif. Publisher: University of California Press PubDate: 2005 PhysDes: 314 p. : 25 cm Subject: BORDWELL, DAVID; FEUILLADE, LOUIS; MIZOGUCHI KENJI; HOU HSIAO-HSIEN; ANGELOPOULOS, THEO; HAWKS, HOWARD; ANTONIONI, MICHELANGELO; OZU YASUJIRO; KITANO TAKESHI; AESTHETICS; CINEMATOGRAPHY Notes: A film tells its story not only through dialogue and actors’ performances but also through the director’s control of movement and shot design. Figures Traced in Light is a detailed consideration of how cinematic staging carries the story, expresses emotion, and beguiles the audience through pictorial composition. Ranging over the entire history of cinema and illustrating his discussion with more than five hundred frame enlargements, David Bordwell focuses on four filmmakers’ unique contributions to the technique. In-depth chapters examine the films of Louis Feuillade, masters of the 1910s serial; Mizoguchi Kenji, the great Japanese director who worked from the 1920s to the 1950s; Theo Angelopoulos, who began his career as a political modernist in the late 1960s; and Hou Hsiao-hsien, the Taiwanese filmmaker who in the 1980s became the preeminent Asian director. For comparison, Bordwell draws on films by Howard hawks, Michelangelo Antonioni, Ozu Yasujiro, Kitano Takeshi, and many other directors. [Taken from back cover.] ISBN: 0520241975 ID2: 291 More info

The films of Theo Angelopoulos : a cinema of contemplation / Andrew Horton
Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, 1997.
Call No: 81ANG HOR Author: Horton, Andrew Place: Princeton, N.J. Publisher: Princeton University Press PubDate: 1997 PhysDes: xii, 227 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Series: Princeton modern Greek studies Subject: ANGELOPOULOS, THEO Summary: Greek film director Theo Angelopoulos is one of the most widely respected filmmakers in the world today, yet his films are still largely unknown to the American public. In the first book in English to focus on Angelopoulos's unique cinematic vision, Andrew Horton provides an illuminating contextual study that attempts to demonstrate the quintessentially Greek nature of the director's work. Horton situates the director in the context of over 3,000 years of Greek culture and history. Somewhat like Andrei Tarkovsky in Russia or Antonioni in Italy, Angelopoulos has used cinema to explore the history and individual identities of his culture; With such far-reaching influences as Greek myth, ancient tragedy and epic, Byzantine iconography and ceremony, Greek and Balkan history, modern Greek pop culture including bouzouki music, shadow puppet theater, and the Greek music hall tradition, Angelopoulos emerges as an original "thinker" with the camera, and a distinctive director who is bound to make a lasting contribution to the art form Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 0691011419 (cl : alk. paper) LON: 12371490 More info
