Abstract:

"In this book, one of the world's great filmmakers gives us a rare and extraordinary revealing glimpse into his mind and peculiarly cinematic point of view. ... here he offers thrity-three richly suggestive pieces describing ideas for films as yet unproduced. These are not stories in the usual sense, but a series of narrative or imagistic "nuclei" which will, when elaborated, grow into fully developed scripts to be modified once again in actual shooting. ... these pieces take us into the workshop of a director who is at once a visual poet, modernist, intellectual, and acute observer of the human condition"--Book jacket.
