Summary
Film theorist, critic, founder of the influential journal Cahiers du Cinema and spiritual father of the French New Wave, Andre Bazin almost single-handedly established the study of film as an accepted intellectual pursuit. Although his career was brief, his impact on film is widely considered greater than that of any single director, actor, or producer. This collection of Bazin's fugitive writings is the first volume of work to appear in English in twenty-five years. Bazin at Work includes previously untranslated selections from the four volumes of Qu'est que le cinema? and from such magazines as Cahiers du cinema and Esprit Bazin addresses such significant subjects as film adaptation, CinemaScope, and religious cinema, such prominent filmmakers Rossellini, Eisenstein, Pagnol, and Capra, and well-known films including La Strada, Citizen Kane, Scarface, and The Bridge on the River Kwai [Publisher description]
