Citizen Kane by Laura Mulvey( Book )

37 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Citizen Kane's reputation as one of the greatest films of all time is matched only by the accumulation of critical commentary that surrounds it. What more can there be to say about a masterpiece so universally acknowledged? Laura Mulvey, in a fresh and original reading, illuminates the richness of the film, both thematically and stylistically, relating it to Welles's political background and its historical context. In a lucid and perceptive critique she also investigates the psychoanalytic structure that underlies the film's presentation of Kane's biography, for once taking seriously what Orson Welles himself disparagingly referred to as 'dollar book Freud.' In her foreword to this special edition, published to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the BFI Film Classics series, Laura Mulvey focuses on the film's politics, highlighting the contemporary 'rhymes' in Kane's portrayal of a scandal prone press baron in a time of economic crisis

Godard's Contempt : essays from the London Consortium by Colin MacCabe( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Godard's Contempt (Le Mepris) remains one of the most intriguing and critically discussed twentieth century films. An experimental film made with a Hollywood budget and a stellar cast, an adaptation of a famous novel which completely transforms the source material's themes and concerns, and the climax of the Nouvelle Vague, which also signalled its collapse, Contempt is paradoxical as well as one of the most beautiful movies ever made. The essays collected in Godard's Contempt construct a framework for a renewed set of questions and analyses of Godard's great modern classic. Drawing on work by young scholars from the London Consortium, the essays benefit from their wide range of disciplinary and cultural backgrounds. One of the most exciting recent experiments in graduate education, the Consortium is a partnership of five institutions: the Architectural Association, Birkbeck, University of London, the Institute of Contemporary Arts, the Science Museum and the Tate. With an introduction by MacCabe and a post-script by Mulvey, the collection combines work from those most established of film critics with the very freshest and most varied voices"--
