Editorial Reviews


"The authors make a compelling case that Malick's impersonal style blends irony and romanticism, an approach that recognizes the hard truth that American mythologies embrace positive and negative aspects of the culture and, therefore, cannot be so readily dispensed with as those "rebel" directors may have wished. Morrison and Schur provide lucid and thoughtful readings of Malick's films, situating them within a startlingly diverse array of influences, from philosophy (Heidegger and Cavell), literature (Lawrence and Cather), and visual art (Wyeth, Hine, and Murnau). In brilliant commentary on topics ranging from Malick's use of stars to his (dis)interest in causality to his treatment of male beauty, the authors develop what will surely prove to be the definitive analysis of Malick's work to date."-Maria Pramaggiore Associate Professor and Director of Film Studies North Carolina State University

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love Malick's movies. This is a scholarly (think college) work which unveils much of his technique. Great for film studies, yet lacking some recent works due to when it was written. It does a great job of delving into why Malick moves us and even confounds us. I found the section on Heidegger was a bit lean, still, a fine starting part on one of cinema's few auteurs. Shipping was fast and the product was as described.
