Summary:
"Although Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, and Jean Renoir do not pontificate about "eternal verities or analytical niceties," as Irving Singer remarks in Three Philosophical Filmmakers, each expresses, through his work, his particular vision of reality. In this study of these great directors, Singer examines the ways in which meaning and technique interact within their different visions."

Singer draws on their writings, as well as their movies, to show the pervasive importance of what they did as dedicated filmmakers."--Jacket."@en ;
