9780719047725: Being Naked--Playing Dead: The Art of Peter Greenaway

Greenaway's assertion that his is 'a cinema of ideas not plots' is developed in this book with discussion of his use of the themes of repetition, quotation theatricality, power relations and images of the nude as flesh. Close analysis of individual films such as The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover, Belly of an Architect and Drowning by Numbers together with a discussion of his latest film The Pillow Book (1996) and recent interviews between Greenaway and Alan Woods about his work, make this book a must for all Greenaway enthusiasts.

Review:

"Being naked playing dead, by exploring the obvious theatrically of Greenaway's films, finds important things to say about the relations between theatre and cinema and will, therefore, be of interest to students of both media, as well as to enthusiasts of the controversial filmmaker." --Contemporary Theatre Review
