Film modernism

Sam Rohdie

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Eloquently written, theoretically groundbreaking and stimulating. This will be a welcome addition to film studies reading lists
  • Jean-Luc Godard's work is at the centre of the book, but the author also takes in Michelangelo Antonioni, Bernardo Bertolucci, John Ford, Howard Hawks, Alfred Hitchcock, João César Monteiro, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Nicholas Ray, Alain Resnais, Roberto Rossellini, Luchino Visconti and Orson Welles
  • Looks at the difference between the 'classical' idea of cinema, which is interested in making simulations of reality, and the modernist film, which is obviously filmic and not content with replicating eality in any easy sense
