Editorial Reviews

Review

Michael Haneke is one of the most important film directors working today. This collection offers a full spectrum of responses to his work, ranging from detailed formal analyses of his films to broad considerations of the philosophical and political issues that these films raise. On Michael Haneke is indispensable, both as a guide to the filmmaker s artistry and as a commentary on the malaise in Western civilization that his films reveal. --Steven Shaviro, DeRoy Professor of English at Wayne State University

Michael Haneke is one of the most distinct and distinctly controversial directors at work today. On Michael Haneke responds to that controversy by asking an impressive range of contributors to think critically about the art of his cinema and its challenge to some of the impasses in contemporary studies in film. Impeccably and creatively edited, this volume is an invaluable addition both to the growing literature on Haneke s work and, crucially, to the ongoing discussion of the experience of the audiovisual field at the beginning of the twenty-first century. --Vicky Lebeau, professor of English at the University of Sussex

On Michael Haneke is a compelling and timely collection of essays in which film theory and history are interwoven. I am especially impressed with what is made of Haneke's animal and human worlds; of his embrace of the long take; of his features that exploit the gaze in eerily unsettling ways; of his reflections on history as it is at once occluded and recalled. Written elegantly and with care, the essays address different but always interrelated facets of his cinema. This book is a first of its kind. --Tom Conley, Abbott Lawrence Lowell Professor in the Departments of Romance Languages and Visual/Environmental Studies at Harvard University
