Orson Welles : a critical view by André Bazin ( Book )
15 editions published between 1978 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
French critic André Bazin was 28 when Orson Welles's Citizen Kane opened in Paris. Four years later he wrote his first book with Welles as its subject; it would quickly achieve the status of a classic. Shortly before his death in 1958, Basin prepared this revised edition. Included are a brilliant introductory essay by François Traffaut and a profile by Jean Cocteau, along with 28 photos of Welles. In Orson Welles: A Critical View, Bazin traces Welles's career from the theatre and radio to Hollywood and Europe. He assesses Welles's works, his innovations--and in many ways takes the man's measure. Orson Welles: A Critical View is the perfect meeting of two great minds. --From cover

The cinema of cruelty : from Buñuel to Hitchcock by André Bazin ( Book )
8 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An amazing collection of essays from the father of film criticism. Perhaps the single most important voice of cinema in the twentieth century, Andr Bazin profoundly influenced the development of the scholarship that we know now as film criticism. Bazin has acutely analyzed the cinematic values of our time, extending to his international audiences ?the impact of art for the understanding and discrimination of his readers.? The depth and logic of his commentary has elevated film criticism to new heights. The reputation of Andr Bazin continues to grow as his writings are published and studied by filmmakers and filmgoers alike. Often referred to as the Edmund Wilson of film, Bazin was more than a critic. ?He made me see certain aspects of my work that I was unaware of,? said Luis Buuel. ?He was our conscience,? wrote Jean Renoir. ?He was a logician in action,? echoed Franois Truffaut. In The Cinema of Cruelty, Franois Truffaut, one of France?s most celebrated and versatile filmmakers, has collected Bazin?s writings on six film ?greats?: Erich von Stroheim, Carl Dreyer, Preston Sturges, Luis Buuel, Alfred Hitchcock, and Akira Kurosawa. The result is a major collection of film criticism. 2 black-and-white photographs

Bazin at work : major essays and reviews from the forties and fifties by André Bazin ( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Film theorist, critic, founder of the influential journal Cahiers du Cinema and spiritual father of the French New Wave, Andre Bazin almost single-handedly established the study of film as an accepted intellectual pursuit. Although his career was brief, his impact on film is widely considered greater than that of any single director, actor, or producer. This collection of Bazin's fugitive writings is the first volume of work to appear in English in twenty-five years. Bazin at Work includes previously untranslated selections from the four volumes of Qu'est que le cinema? and from such magazines as Cahiers du cinema and Esprit Bazin addresses such significant subjects as film adaptation, CinemaScope, and religious cinema, such prominent filmmakers Rossellini, Eisenstein, Pagnol, and Capra, and well-known films including La Strada, Citizen Kane, Scarface, and The Bridge on the River Kwai [Publisher description]

Monsieur Verdoux a comedy of murders by Charlie Chaplin ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this dark comedy first released during WWII, Henri Vedoux, played by Charlie Chaplin, supports his family by first marrying, and then killing wealthy widows. On another level the film is an indictment of war in which mass murder is legalized, celebrated and paraded. "Killing is the enterprise by which your system prospers," Verdoux says. "As a mass killer, I am an amateur by comparison."
