Japanese Film Directors by Audie Bock
This product is currently sold out.
Bock's "Japanese Film Directors" is a faithful and definitive dive into the significant artistry, nuance, underlying psychologies and personal perspectives in the work and biographies of filmmakers like Kurosawa, Ozu, Oshima, and others. Bock's critical work is meticulous in her studies of the directors, chapter by chapter, even still by still. And, the undeniable intrigue caused by the book's bold collage of the filmmakers, presented in a in black & white, Rushmore-esque arrangement and adorned with scraps of vividly colored hates, shirts, and cameras, is indicator enough of what kind of brilliant endeavor Bock's "Japanese Film Directors" sets itself out to be.
