Jean-Marie Straub.
Roud, Richard
This book covers the life and aesthetic qualities of the work of the European film-maker Jean-Marie Straub (1933- ). It contains introductory chapters on the biography and artistic milieu of Straub and continues with a chapter-by-chapter critical treatment of each of his films: "Machorka-Muff"; "Not Reconciled"; "Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach"; "The Bridegroom, the Actress, and the Pimp"; and "Othon." The text of the script of "Not Reconciled" is also included. Straub is seen as artistically influenced by Robert Bresson, and his work is examined in light of Straub's reaction to the European legacy from Nazi Germany. A complete filmography is appended. (CH)
