    schema:description "This new collection of essays, including contributions from David Bordwell and Fredric Jameson, surveys Angelopoulos' entire cinematic output, and presents an intelligent and articulate discussion of his major films, themes and concerns. The authors argue that Angelopoulos' sustained oeuvre has kept alive the tradition of postwar modernism - the cinema of Antonioni, Jancso and Ozu - in the largely hostile climate of the 1980s and 1990s."@en ;
