Published by Oxford University Press and Secker & Warburg in 1979, this study of the modern master filmmaker was based on numerous interviews. The book includes previously unpublished photographs by Resnais himself and more than 100 frame enlargements from the films.
This is a Collector's item: first edition, first printing, signed by the author.
The author of How To Read a Film and The New Wave, here turns to the remarkable work of Alain Resnais, whose films include Last Year at Marienbad, Muriel, and Hiroshima, mon amour. Monaco examines how Resnais's relationships with novelists Alain Robbe-Grillet and Marguerite Duras influenced his fascination with narrative technique, and explains how different a picture of Resnais's work we would have if some of his unrealized projects--collaborations with Richard Seaver and Stan Lee--had come to fruition. Most important, Monaco brings us closer to Resnais himself through numerous interviews and wide-ranging discussions with the director.
