ARKADIN (FR/SP/IT, Orson Welles, 1955); CITIZEN KANE (US, Orson Welles, 1941) Summary: "The films of Orson Welles inhabit the spaces of cities -- from America's industrializing midlandto its noirish borderlands, from Europe's medieval fortresses to its Kafkaesque labyrinths and postwar rubblescapes. His movies take us through dark streets to confront nightmarish struggles for power, the carnivalesque and bizarre, and the shadows and light of human character. This ambitious new study explores Welles's vision of cities by following recurring themes across his work, including urban transformation, race relations and fascism, the utopian promise of cosmopolitanism, and romantic nostalgia for archaic forms of urban culture. It focuses on the personal and political foundation of Welles's cinematic cities -- the way he invents urban spaces on film to serve his dramatic, thematic, and ideological purposes. The book's critical scope draws on extensive research in international archives and builds on the work of previous scholars." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9780231173414 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema More info

Cinematography in the Weimar Republic : Lola Lola, dirty singles, and the men who shot them / Paul Matthew St. Pierre
London: Fairleigh Dickinson University Press,
Call No: 23(430) Author: St. Pierre, Paul Matthew Place: London Publisher: Fairleigh Dickinson University Press PhysDes: 274 p. ; illus. ; 24 cm Series: Fairleigh Dickinson University Press series in communication studies Subject: CINEMATOGRAPHY; GERMANY; EXPRESSIONISM; LUBITSCH, ERNST; WAGNER, FRITZ ARNO; MURNAU, FRIEDRICH WILHELM; LANG, FRITZ; PABST, GEORG WILHELM; RITTAU, GUNTHER; DREYER, CARL TH. Summary: In film history, director-cinematographer collaborations were on a labor spectrum, with the model of the contracted camera operator in the silent era and that of the cinematographer in the sound era. But in Weimar era German filmmaking, 1919-33, a short period of intense artistic activity and political and economic instability, these models existed side by side due to the emergence of camera operators as independent visual artists and collaborators with directors.
Berlin in the 1920s was the chief site of the interdisciplinary avant-garde of the Modernist movement in the visual, literary, architectural, design, typographical, sartorial, and performance arts in Europe. The Weimar Revolution that arose in the aftermath of the November 1918 Armistice and that established the Weimar Republic informed and agitated all of the art movements, such as Expressionism, Dada, the Bauhaus, Minimalism, Objectivism, Verism, and Neue Sachlichkeit (“New Objectivity”). Among the avant-garde forms of these new stylistically and culturally negotiated arts, the cinema was foremost and since its inception had been a radical experimental practice in new visual technologies that proved instrumental in changing how human beings perceived movement, structure, perspective, light exposure, temporal duration, continuity, spatial orientation, human postural, facial, vocal, and gestural displays, and their own spectatorship, as well as conventions of storytelling like narrative, setting, theme, character, and structure. Whereas most of the arts mobilized into schools, movements, institutions, and other structures, cinema, a collaborative art, tended to organize around its ensembles of practitioners.
Historically, the silent film era, 1895-1927, is associated with auteurs, the precursors of François Truffaut and other filmmakers in the 1960s: actuality filmmakers and pioneers like R. W. Paul and Fred and Joe Evans in England, Auguste and Luis Lumière and Georges Méliès in France, and Charles Chaplin and Buster Keaton in America, who, by managing all the compositional, executional, and editorial facets of film production—scripting, directing, acting, photographing, set, costume, and lighting design, editing, and marketing—imposed their personal vision or authorship on the film. The dichotomy of the auteur and the production ensemble established a production hierarchy in most filmmaking.
In formative German silent film, however, this hierarchy was less rank or class driven, because collaborative partnerships took precedence over single authorship. Whereas in silent film production in most countries the terms filmmaker and director were synonymous, in German silent film the plural term filmemacherin connoted both directors and cinematographers, along with the rest of the filmmaking crew. Thus, German silent filmmakers’ principle contribution to the new medium and art of film was less the representational iconographies of Expressionist, New Objective, and Naturalist styles than the executional practice of co-authorship and co-production, in distinctive cinematographer-director partnerships such as those of cinematographer Theodor Sparkuhl and director Ernst Lubitsch; Fritz Arno Wagner with F. W. Murnau, Fritz Lang, and G. W. Pabst; Rudolf Maté with Carl Theodor Dreyer; Guido Seeber with Lang and Pabst; and Carl Hoffmann with Lang and Murnau.

It reworks Pasolini's landmark concept of 'the cinema of poetry' to look at the transformation of film form in its encounter with society, the sacred, the subjective and the presence of the camera. In the 1970s, the influential forms of a cinema of poetry are analysed in key features by Altman, Herzog, Malick, Scorsese, Weir, Von Trotta and Tarkovsky while in the 1980s and 1990s the emergence of new filmmakers has meant a diffusion of different cinemas of poetry using new techniques and new poetries. Of key importance here is the work of Kieslowski, Lynch, Egoyan, Campion, Greenaway, Zhang Yimou, Tran Anh Hung and Wong Kar-Wai, as well as the reinvention of science fiction and film noir in American genre."

Summary: The critical writings of Adrian Stokes, based on the psychoanalyst Melanie Klein's innovative theories, were enormously influential on visual art and culture during his lifetime, but have rarely been applied to film. In this first major study of Stokes, his ideas and those of the philosopher Richard Wolheim are considered in relation to two central issues in current film theory - film as representation and as expression. Stokes fundamental distinction between carving and modelling which reflects Klein's own division in mental life between paranoid-schizoid and depressive positions is explored in relation to the traditional division in film theory between montage and realism. At the core of this study is the role of the Kleinian notion of phantasy in understanding film as an art form. To this end, the carving and modelling modes are applied to the films of Ford, Hitchcock, Rossellini, Antonioni, Dreyer, Eisenstein and American B movies.
