The Film. The Bobbs-Merrill Series in Composition and Rhetoric.
Sarris, Andrew, Ed.
Prefaced by a brief discussion of early films and film criticism, 10 essays treat selected modern directors and their works. Essays on Stanley Kubrick's "Lolita," the early works of Elia Kazan, and the response of French critics to Jerry Lewis explore the American scene, while Francois Truffaut's "Jules and Jim," the early work of Robert Bressen, and an overview of the New Wave represent recent French work. The four remaining essays on two Italian directors explore the pros and cons of Antonioni's "Blow Up" and Fellini's "8 1/2." Following each essay are suggestions for discussion and writing. Authors are Pauline Kael, Eugene Archer, Hollis Alpert, Roger Greenspun, Richard Roud, Joan Fox, Arlene Croce, Andrew Sarris, John Simon, and Dwight MacDonald. (MF)
