Postcards from the Cinema is the book Serge Daney, one of the greatest of film critics, never wrote. It is based around an interview that was to be the starting point for a book, a project cut short by Daney's death. Postcards turns a history of cinema into a profound meditation on the art and politics of film. Daney's passionate and lucid engagement with film, combined with his concern for journalistic clarity, effectively created film criticism as a genre. Equally at home with the theories of Deleuze, Lacan and Debord as he was with the movie-making of Bunuel, Godard and Ray, Daney was also a fan of Jerry Lewis and Hitchcock. At the same time - and before his time - he championed the critical analysis of television and other audio-visual media. Long-awaited, this is the first book-length translation of Daney's work, testimony to a life lived with a fierce love of film.

About the Author:

Serge Daney was a writer, and eventually editor-in-chief, for the highly influential film journal Cahiers du Cinéma. He went on to write for the newspaper Libération, and founded the film journal Trafic.

Review:

“This long overdue introduction in English to the greatest French film critic since AndrÈ Bazin helps to show what keeps Daney's work vital, eye-opening, and even timely.” ―Jonathan Rosenbaum, Film Critic, Chicago Reader

“Perched well above cinema studies, Serge Daney wrote and spoke of films in thrilling sentences, unrivalled in insight, moral fervor and sheer genius. Easily the best critic of his day.” ―Dudley Andrew, Yale University

“Serge Daney was the end of criticism as I understood it.” ―Jean Luc Godard

“Only Serge Daney could serve as the guide through this labyrinth of images.” ―Wim Wenders

“Serge Daney knew something about cinema that no one else knew.” ―Olivier Assayas

“Our most scrupulous and inspired film critic.” ―Raymond Bellour

“Cinema is the only thing at our disposal with which we can recognize ourselves in today's images. As an instrument it's inevitably inadequate, but it's the only one.” ―Serge Daney
