Review-A-Day

"In Vivra sa vie (1962), master auteur of arthouse cinema Jean-Luc Godard divides the story of Nana Kleinfrankenheim into twelve tableaux. Each begins with a title card which not only summarizes the action that will take place and but also hints at the tone of the tableau to come. Godard employs different stylistic techniques in each tableau to tell a particular part of the story; as a result, the film becomes, as Godard himself points out, 'a series of sketches.'" Derek M. Jackson, Rain Taxi (Read the entire Rain Taxi review)

Arthouse is an audacious transformation in prose of fourteen modernist films. From film to film, Jeffrey DeShell follows a forty-something failed film studies academic—The Professor. While The Professor is reinvented with each new chapter (or film), what remains is DeShell’s inventive deconstruction and representation of modern cinema. At times borrowing imagery, plot, or character elements, and at times rendering lighting, rhythm, costuming, or shot sequences into fictional language, The Professor’s journey sends him from the Southwestern town of Pueblo, Colorado, into the role of rescuer as he aids an attempted-rape victim, and finally to Italy. Ultimately though, The Professor is left alone, struggling to reconcile the real world with his life in cinema.
