Their films were often controversial: Churchill tried to suppress the release of The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp. Later, The Red Shoes and The Tales of Hoffman startled and enchanted cinema audiences with their use of colour, form and music. In the last ten years the magic, poetry and passion of their work has been acknowledged around the world and they are firmly in the pantheon of film masters Notes: Originally published : London : Waterstone, 1985; Includes bibliographical references (p. -119) and index; Filmography (p. -157) ISBN: 0571162711 (pbk) LON: 10846724 More info

(1945), A Matter of Life and Death (1947) and The Red Shoes (1948), are landmarks in British cinema, standing apart from the realist and comic mainstream with their highly stylised aesthetic and their themes of romantic longing and spiritual crisis. Powell and Pressburger are revered by film lovers and film-makers (Martin Scorsese has called them ‘the most successful experimental film-makers in the world’). In this first ever collection of essays on Powell, an international group of scholars explore his film-making landscape, providing new readings of individual films, analysing recurrent techniques and themes, and relating these to contemporary debates about gender, sexuality, nationality and cinematic spectacle. Powell, with and without Pressburger, emerges as a film-maker of lasting originality and significance. [Taken from back of book.] ISBN: 1844570940 More info
