9780199738885: A Cinema of Loneliness

An updated and expanded version of this classic study of contemporary American film, the new edition of A Cinema of Loneliness reassesses the landscape of American cinema over the past decade, incorporating discussions of directors like Judd Apatow and David Fincher while offering assessments of the recent, and in some cases final, work from the filmmakers--Penn, Scorsese, Stone, Altman, Kubrick--at the book's core.

About the Author:


Robert Kolker is Emeritus Professor of English at the University of Maryland and Adjunct Professor of Media Studies at the University of Virginia. He is the author of numerous works on film and media, including The Altering Eye; Film, Form, and Culture; and Media Studies: An Introductory Textbook.

Review:


"An excellent work of film criticism, and as such, demands response and debate....Kolker's analyses of each director's work...are stimulating, provocative, insightful and passionate, models of film analysis."--San Francisco Review of Books


"Brings the films into clearer focus for film-goers. The filmmakers themselves will find Kolker's analysis of their works extremely accurate."--Martin Scorsese


"The best book on contemporary American film ."--The Washington Post Book World
