Green Integer Books #2: Notes on the Cinematographer

Green Integer Books #2: Notes on the Cinematographer Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. Film Studies. Translated from the French by Jonathan Griffin. Robert Bresson's NOTES ON THE CINEMATOGRAPHER is a collection of working memos which the great French director made for his own use. In all of them, Bresson reflects with a craftsman's insight on techniques and their philosophical and aesthetic implications. Not surprisingly, these acute reflections will not only sharpen a filmmaker's sensibility but that of any artist in any medium. Director of The Trial of Joan of Arc, Pickpocket, A Prisoner Escapes, Diary of a Country Priest, Money, and many other classic films, Bresson is, quite simply, one of the most brilliant cinematographers in the history of film.

Synopsis:

The only published writing by the great French flimmaker, Robert Bresson.

Synopsis:

Robert Bresson makes some quite radical distinctions between what he terms "cinematography" and something quite different: "cinema"—which is for him nothing but an attempt to photograph theater and use it for the screen.

Director of The Trial of Joan of Arc, Pickpocket, A Prisoner Escapes, Diary of a Country Priest, Money, and many other classic films, Robert Bresson is, quite simply, one of the most brilliant cinematographers in the history of film.
