Synopsis: The most comprehensive treatment of Satyajit Ray's work, The Cinema of Satyajit Ray makes accessible the oeuvre of one of the most prolific and creative filmmakers of the twentieth century. Providing analyses of selected films, including those that comprise The Apu Trilogy, Chess Players, and Jalsaghar, among others, Darius Cooper outlines Western influences on Ray's work, such as the plight of women functioning within a patriarchal society, Ray's political vision of the "doubly colonized," and his attack and critique of the Bengali/Indian middle class of today.

From Library Journal: The powerhouse Indian film industry passes unnoticed outside of the subcontinent, and, for the most part, so does the work of its master filmmakers. It has been over a decade since the publication of Andrew Robinson's Satyajit Ray: The Inner Eye (1989) and Ben Nyce's Satyajit Ray: A Study of His Films (1988). This new monograph aims to approach the cinema of Ray from an Indian aesthetic as well as an Indian social and historical perspective. Cooper (literature and film, San Diego Mesa Coll.) adds much to our understanding, analyzing Ray's early films in terms of the concept of "rasa" (i.e., aesthetic perception) in terms of the status of Indian women, and vis-?-vis British and Hindu hegemony--among other things. Throughout, close analysis dovetails with Indian cultural contexts in effective ways. The result is a superb work of scholarship recommended for all libraries supporting international cinema.
