I, who like the films, find it a fascinating step forward in rethinking what the auteur monograph could be. Taschen’s auteur campaign was part of its “Archives” series.

Instead, like Molly’s Game, The Social Network starts its plot in the past, skips ahead to the future, and then fills in more of the past. “Separation of people is a living fact,” and they are future “casualties of war.” Throughout the rest of the film, the shots of children carry a terrible aura; they have no idea of what they’re facing.

As the festival circuit expanded, those events hosted retrospectives of periods, genres, national cinemas, and, inevitably, auteurs.

The old Kino disc groups it with Pudovkin’s The End of St. Petersburg (the cropping of which I mentiooned in the 1927 entry) and Chess Fever.

Jean Renoir’s Grand Illusion (1938) broke with tradition by downplaying battlefield action and focusing on the senseless loss of life and liberty and the effects of class differences in warfare. Seitz went on to apply the same principle to a very different director, Oliver Stone, and he gave that Abrams book an appropriately tense, smashmouth aesthetic. We may identify Sorkin more with ensemble, or multiple-protagonist, plots because of the fame of his TV shows  Sports Night (1998-2000), The West Wing (1999–2006), Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006–2007), and Newsroom (2014-1016).

For a fan-inflected but still carefully researched example of the Massive Monograph that’s devoted to a single film, see Jason Bailey, Pulp Fiction: The Complete Story of Quentin Tarantino’s Masterpiece (Voyageur, 2013). There are several carefully lit street scenes, including this one shot in depth with both characters’ backs to the camera as Albert spots Pola outside a bar.

Sorkin, with his  liberal political bent, has brought that legacy to his film work. An artist earns acclaim for finding fresh ways to realize long-standing craft principles. “There, let’s say it’s there.” She has a natural glamor here that will disappear in her roles for von Sternberg in Hollywood. Raymond Bernard’s masterful but little-known Wooden Crosses (1932), which focuses largely on French troops, is no less powerful in its depiction of trench warfare. Fincher found lukewarm success with The Game (1997) and Fight Club (1999), with the latter eventually becoming a cult classic. Apart from its sheer audacity (who thinks of a gag like this?

L’Herbier’s film was adapted from the eighteenth novel in Zola’s Rougon-Macquart series, published in 1891, but the film updated the story to the 1920s. [7], One element of Fincher's visual style is the specific way in which he uses tilt, pan and track in the camera movements. The resulting effect helps the audience connect with the character to understand their feelings. In a chilling visual refrain, the happy American toddlers are compared to troops of children marched along barbed wire. Its glossy pages teem with original sketches and plans, frame enlargements, and ancillary information about the films and the director’s life.

Sound was adopted slowly in Japan, and Ozu held out until 1936 before releasing his first talkie, The Only Son, which will doubtless feature on my list for that year. Strange Victory is, it seems to me, the essential documentary of our moment. Clair shoots the two men in shot/reverse shot through glass doors, so that we do not hear them but only watch their actions and faces in a deliberate reversion to silent cinema. The Definitive Jacques Tati, edited by Alison Castle, is is a five-volume boxed set. The Japanese renga poet, the Chinese painter or calligrapher, and the Ottoman carpet weaver revise inherited techniques to reveal new expressive possibilities. The old theatre adage claims that dialogue needs to do one of three things: advance the action, delineate the characters, or add humor. (asking his son what to do in the face of police:) Supposedly one of the women got really into it, according to a Cronenberg interview. Only the latter survives.

Associated with Ibsen and other pioneers of “new theatre,” the late point of attack was a solid convention by the 1910s.

Semion, an aged peasant, is calmly, even cheerfully awaiting his imminent death, lying on a blanket and surrounded by heaps of apples. Whereas your classic picture book has a neutral caption, the captions in the Abrams books tend to make critical points by hooking the picture to the text or other illustrations. A video lecture, I suppose. If progressive politics is branded as childishness, “We’ll lose elections.” Abbie calmly replies that “We’re going to jail for who we are.” The debates are about tactics as well.

Cinematographer Ernest Palmer has handled the landscapes well (top of this section) and given a distinctly documentary look to the harvest scenes. These are a fan’s notes on a Borgesian scale, the print equivalent of hyperlinks. The restored dialogue scenes in Fejos’s Lonesome show how ghastly these added interludes could be. The result has its own appeal (and Shanghai Express is a good bet for a place on the 1932 list), but it is revealing to see her performing in a way that she only recaptured occasionally, if at all, in her subsequent films. [104] For Seven, Fincher and cinematographer Darius Khondji were inspired by films The French Connection (1971) and Klute (1971), as well as the work by photographer Robert Frank. Enthusiasm was Vertov’s last Ukrainian film and apparently the first Ukrainian sound feature. The first mini-monograph, Luda and Jean Schnitzler’s 1965 study of Dovzhenko, led to a great many dossiers, some on quite obscure figures. [66], Fincher directed the 2010 film The Social Network, a biographical drama about Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg and his legal battles. It’s truly its own discipline. All this personal material made me think that perhaps  we should go beyond treating Tati as an isolated artist, as if the local or global film industry had no impact on him, or him on it. Fincher first learned of the project after being approached by producer Brad Fischer; he was intrigued by the story due to his childhood personal experience. The French phrase liaison des scènes, “scene linkage,” captures the way that within a single setting characters’ entrances and exits break the act into distinct pieces.

Pete, in a genial performance by Paul Robeson, takes back his fiancée (or wife?) At least in the US, Julien Duvivier is not as familiar as Clair, being known mainly for Pépé le Moko, but his reputation is rightly growing.

(A Facets release in the US is out of print.) Tom Hayden and Rennie Davis, as student activists out of SDS, are presented as preppy intellectuals, committed to antiwar action within the frame of protest and legal debate. Unfortunately, they all take place on a television screen with blurry reception. The time structure is a little more complicated in Charlie Wilson’s War. “You’ve come to my apartment at 1 AM and cleaned it, so tell me where the boundary is.” The scale of the enterprise lifts the film director to the level of a gallery artist, putting idiosyncrasy on display. Here we move from the worried Mayumi to Shuji, trying to elude the police after the theft. But the others are left dangling, to be revisited, and we are looking forward to that. Through-composed to the max, each book proposes itself as an art object that, though coming after the fact, has as valid a tie to the oeuvre as the innumerable works that influenced the makers. I discuss some Coen directorial strategies in relation to a scene in The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. The Tati box aside, these books are generously priced.
