Aural Auteur : sound in the films of Rolf De Heer / David Bruno Starrs

AUSTRALIA; SOUND; THEORY; DE HEER, ROLF; DANCE ME TO MY SONG (AT, Rolf de Heer, 1998); DR PLONK (AT, Rolf de Heer, 2007); EPSILON (AT/IT, Rolf de Heer, 1995); OLD MAN WHO READ LOVE STORIES (AT/SP/FR/NL, Rolf de Heer, 2000); PROPOSITION, THE (AT/UK, John Hillcoat, 2005); TRACKER, THE (AT, Rolf de Heer, 2002) Summary: "An interpretative methodology for understanding meaning in cinema since the 1950s, auteur analysis is an approach to film studies in which an individual, usually the director, is studied as the author of his or her films. The principal argument of this thesis is that proponents of auteurism have privileged examination of the visual components in a film-makers' body of work, neglecting the potentially significant role played by sound.
The thesis seeks to address this problematic imbalance by interrogating the creative use of sound in the films written and directed Rolf de Heer, asking the question, "Does his use of sound make Rolf de Heer and aural auteur?" In so far as the term 'aural' encompasses everything in the film that is heard by the audience, the analysis seeks to discover if de Heer has, as Peter Wollen suggests of the auteur and her or his directing of the visual components (1968, 1972 and 1998), unconsciously left a detectable aural signature on his films.
The thesis delivers an innovative outcome by demonstrating that auteur analysis that goes beyond the mise-en-scene (i.e. visuals) is productive and worthwhile as an interpretative response to film. De Heer's use of the aural point of view and binaural sound recording, his interest in providing a 'voice' for marginalised people, his self-penned song lyrics, his close and early collaboration with composer Graham Tardif and sound desinger Jim Currie, his 'hands-on' approach to sound recording and sound editing and his predilection for making films about sound are all shown to be examples of de Heer's aural auteurism.
As well as the three published (or accepted for publication) interviews with de Heer, Tardif and Currie, the dissertation consists of seven papers refereed and published (or accepted for publication) in journals and internatiional conference proceedings, a literature review and a unifying essay. The papers presented are close textual analyses of de Heer's films which, when considered as a whole, support the thesis' overall argument and serve as comprehensive auteur analysis, the first such sustained study of his work, and the first with an emphasis on the aural.

Antony Todd traces the development of Lynch's career from cult obscurity with Eraserhead to star auteur through the release of Blue Velvet, as well as the television event of the early 1990s, Twin Peaks. He investigates how Lynch's idiosyncratic style introduced the term 'Lynchian' to the colloquial speech of new Hollywood and helped establish Lynch as the leading light among contemporary American auteurs. Through the evidence of critical and promotional ephemera and the texts carrying Lynch's name, Todd explores contemporary manners and attitudes for artistic reputation building. He also reviews the standards by which Lynch's reputation was dismantled following the release of Wild at Heart and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, only to be reassembled once more through films such as Lost Highway, Mulholland Dr. and INLAND EMPIRE.
This book also ventures beyond its empirical findings by addressing authorship concerns pertaining to the ways in which, and to whom, the contemporary auteur has meaning. In its account of the experiences at play in the encounter between ephemera, text and reader, Authorship and the Films of David Lynch explores how authors functions for pleasure in the modern filmgoer's everyday consumption of films."-BOOK BLURB Notes: includes bibliographical references; includes index ISBN: 9781848855809 Contents: -- introduction -- 1.Towards a Textual Historicity -- 2.David Lynch: The Making of a Post-classical Auteur -- 3.Meanings and Authorships in Dune -- 4.Critical Theory and `Cruel Jokes': Principles of Ethics and Pleasure, and the Reception of Blue Velvet -- 5.Twin Peaks: The Rise and Fall of a Public Auteur -- 6.Brand Lynch -- 7.Receiving Mulholland Dr.: `A Contemporary Film Noir Directed by David Lynch' -- conclusion -- notes -- bibliography -- index -- More info

From the children's story about the restoration of a Tiger Moth biplane, "Tail of a Tiger "(1984), to his break-out cult sensation " Bad Boy Bubby" (1993) which "tore Venice apart," to the first Aboriginal Australian language film "Ten Canoes" (2006) which scooped the pool at the AFI awards and won the Special Jury prize at Cannes Film Festival, de Heer has been consistently unpredictable. However, Starr's close study of his work suggests that Australia's most innovative and respected Arthouse film-maker has a signature pre-occupation with giving a voice to marginalized, non-hyper-masculine protagonists. Demonstrating a propensity to write and direct in a European-like style, de Heer's "Dutch tilt" is very much non-mainstream Hollywood, but is nevertheless representative of a typically Australian world-view." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 90-104) ISBN: 9783639168341 More info

This volume identifies and investigates a far wider array of problems posed by the process of adaptation.
Thomas Leitch considers how the creators of short silent films attempted to give them the weight of literature, what sorts of fidelity are possible in an adaptation of sacred scripture, what it means for an adaptation to pose as an introduction to, rather than a transcription of, a literary classic, and why and how some films have sought impossibly close fidelity to their sources. Leitch's analysis moves beyond literary sources to consider why a small number of adaptors have risen to the status of auteurs and how illustrated books, comic strips, video games, and true stories have been adaptated to the screen." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references (p. -338) and index ISBN: 9780801892714 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- 1: Literature versus literacy -- 2: One-reel epics -- 3: The word made film -- 4: Entry-level Dickens -- 5: Between adaptation and allusion -- 6: Exceptional fidelity -- 7: Traditions of quality -- 8: Streaming pictures -- 9: The hero with a hundred faces -- 10: The adapter as auteur -- 11: Postliterary adaptation -- 12: Based on a true story -- notes -- bibliography -- index -- More info

Five directors : auteurism from Assayas to Ozon / edited by Kate Ince

Call No: 621 INC Source: UK/US Place: Manchester, UK ; New York Publisher: Manchester University Press PubDate: 2008 PhysDes: viii, 157 p. ; 21 cm Subject: NOUVELLE VAGUE; AUTEUR THEORY; EUROPEAN CINEMA; ASSAYAS, OLIVIER; AUDIARD, JACQUES; DARDENNE, JEAN-PIERRE & LUC; HANEKE, MICHAEL; OZON, FRANCOIS Summary: "This new appraisal of the continuing relevence of the auteur to filmmmaking in French will reinvigorate debate about the historic place of auteurism in both French and European cinema.
Auteurism - the ideea that a director of a film is its source of meaning and should retain creative control over the finished product - has been one of film studies' most important paradigms ever since the French 'nouvelle vague' of the late 1950s, and the adoption of the term auteur by Andrew Sarris.
Through the work of five important contemporary directors working in the French language, this book explores the ways in which the meaning of auteur has changed over this half-century. Its five dense and wide-ranging introductory essays to the films of Olivier Assayas, Jacques Audiard, the Dardenne brothers, Michael Haneke and Francois Ozon combine French philosophical and sociological approaches with methodologies from the Anglo-American fields of gender studies, queer theory and postmodernism.
This volume will be of interest to researchers working in French and European cinema and to students of film studies, European cinema, and French and Francophone studies, as well as to film enthusiasts."-BOOK BLURB Notes: includes bibliographical references

Some of these essays look at adaptations through a specific lens, such as queer aesthetics applied to Rope, Strangers on a Train, and Psycho, while others tackle the issue of Hitchcock as author, auteur, adaptor, and, for the first time, present Hitchcock as a literary source. Film adaptations discussed in this volume include The 39 Steps, Shadow of a Doubt, Lifeboat, Rear Window, Vertigo, Marnie, and Frenzy. Additional essays analyze Hitchcock-inspired works by W. G. Sebald, Don DeLillo, Bret Easton Ellis, and others.
These close examinations of Alfred Hitchcock and the creative process illuminate the significance of the material he turned to for inspiration, celebrate the men and women who helped bring his artistic vision from the printed word to the screen, and explore how the director has influenced contemporary writers. A fascinating look into an underexplored aspect of the director’s working methods, Hitchcock and Adaptation will be of interest to film scholars and fans of cinema’s most gifted auteur. -- Extract from the back of book Notes: Includes filmography -- Includes bibliographical references, filmography and index ISBN: 9781442230873 Contents: Part 1.

The text takes a distinct approach to understanding Campion's films, positioning them not simply as the work of a cinematic auteur, but as the culmination of a complex set of textual relationships and practices. In doing so, Tincknell argues persuasively that the director's use of adaptation goes well beyond the conventionally respectful approach to literary texts, opting instead for a playful, subversive and challenging re-imagining of the connections between literature, myth, cultural identity and cinema." -- PORTION OF BOOK BLURB Notes: Contains bibliographic references and index -- list of illustrations included as looseleaf in front of book ISBN: 9780230229006 Contents: -- pt.

The Limits of Auteurism aims to challenge many of these assumptions. Beginning with the commercial success of Easy Rider in 1969, and ending two years later with the critical and commercial failure of that film’s twin progeny, The Last Movie and The Hired Hand, Nicholas Godfrey surveys a key moment that defined the subsequent aesthetic parameters of American commercial art cinema.
The book explores the role that contemporary critics played in determining how the movies of this period were understood and how, in turn, strategies of distribution influenced critical responses and dictated the conditions of entry into the rapidly codifying New Hollywood canon. Focusing on a small number of industrially significant films, this new history advances our understanding of this important moment of transition from Classical to contemporary modes of production. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9780813589145 More info

AUSTRALIA : NEW SOUTH WALES; HOLLYWOOD; WEIR, PETER; PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK (AT, Peter Weir, 1975); YEAR OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY, THE (AT, Peter Weir, 1982); WITNESS (US, Peter Weir, 1985); TRUMAN SHOW, THE (US, Peter Weir, 1998) Summary: "The cinematic output of Australian director Peter Weir has garnered numerous awards and widespread critical acclaim-from his early short films of the 1970s to the Hollywood hits he's helmed since 1985, including the likes of Witness, Dead Poets Society, The Truman Show, and Master and Commander.
Drawing on contemporary concepts from transnational cinema studies, this book investigates Weir's entire three-decade career, paying particular attention to his journey from his native Sydney, with its largely auteur-driven national cinema, to the miltimillion-dollar Hollywood film industry with its many genre conventions. Along the way, the author explores a host of questions accompanying this move, including Weir's status as a transnational filmmaker and a more generalised discussion of the critically controversial idea of the auteur. Rounding out this volume are interviews with leading Hollywood filmmakers who discuss Weir's work."-BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 173-193) and filmography (p. 195-202) ISBN: 9781841504773 Contents: -- acknowldegments -- Introduction -- Migrations and transnationalism in the cinema -- Perspectives on Peter Weir -- Australian production context in the 1970s and early 1980s -- Peter Weir's four key steps from Australia to Hollywood -- Conclusions -- Bibliography -- Appendix 1: Filmography - main credits -- Appendix 2: Films made in Hollywood by Australian directors -- URL status: URL: 'https://ebookcentral.proquest.com/lib/rmit/detail.action?docID=1069409'

Often requiring time and effort to fully grasp it and seeming rather old-fashioned, it can be difficult to approach the subject with enthusiasm and appreciate its relevance to modern day.
Understanding Film Theory aims to disassociate theory from these connotations and bring a fresh, contemporary and accessible approach to the discipline. Now comprehensively updated in a second edition, the book’s sixteen chapters - including a new chapter on Adaptations - continue to provide an insight into the main areas of debate. Taking the application of theory as its central theme, the text incorporates a number of innovative features: ‘Reflect and Respond’ sections encourage readers to engage critically with theoretical concepts, while seminal texts are concisely summarised without oversimplifying key points.
Throughout the book the authors illustrate why theory is important and demonstrate how it can be applied in a meaningful way, with relevant case studies drawn from both classic and contemporary cinema including: Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), Run Lola Run (1998), The Hunger Games (2012), Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013) and The Lego Movie (2014). Additional case studies address key genres (the British Gangster film and the musical), film movements (Dogme 95), individual actors (Ryan Gosling, Judi Dench and Amitabh Bachchan) and directors (Alfred Hitchcock and Guillermo del Toro).
Understanding Film Theory is an approachable and extensive introduction to film theory. It is the ideal entry point for any student studying film, using clear definitions and explaining complex ideas succinctly.
