Michael Powell: International Perspectives on an English Film-maker (Hardback)
Language: English . Brand New Book. The films of Michael Powell (1905-90) and Emeric Pressburger (1902-88), among them I Know Where I m Going! (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 critics and scholars map out his film-making skills, providing new readings of individual films, analysing recurrent techniques and themes, and relating them 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. N° de réf. du libraire AA79781844570935
