Totally, tenderly, tragically: essays and criticism from a lifelong love affair with the movies
Anchor Books/Doubleday, 1998/10/20 - 384 ページ
The essays in Phillip Lopate's new book record an ardent three-decades-plus love affair with the movies; like Michel Piccoli with Brigitte Bardot in Godard's "Contempt," he is "totally, tenderly, tragically" besotted with the cinema. Artfully braiding emotional and intellectual autobiography with critical and historical commentary, these essays exemplify and record a passionate engagement with an irreplaceable art form, its creators, and its critics. Lopate evaluates those filmmakers who have most affected him since his days as a nascent film cultist at Columbia: Antonioni, Godard, Bresson, Mizoguchi, Fassbinder, Ozu, and Visconti. He celebrates Andrew Sarris as the film critic who first won his heart and provides an eye-opening extended portrait and fondly skeptical critique of Pauline Kael, the most influential film writer of our time. And in essays such as "The Last Taboo: The Dumbing Down of American Movies, " he addresses the elusive question of whether movies can actually think. With his full-hearted affection and bracing intelligence, Phillip Lopate captures, as few others have, the insistent allure of films and filmgoing.
