9780292776883: Vital Crises in Italian Cinema: Iconography, Stylistics, Politics

Italian films of the post-World War II period showed an extraordinary power and originality that sets them apart from others in the history of Italian cinema. In this book, P. Adams Sitney combines new interpretations of many of these films with original research into the intellectual milieu in which they were made in order to explain them as reflections of Italian national life during moments of vital self-definition. The films Sitney analyzes were made during the years 1945-1950 and 1958-1963. Taking six films from the first period and nine from the second, he focuses on three interrelated aspects: the ways in which they refer, directly or obliquely, to the social and political issues of their times; their relationships to contemporary currents in Italian literature; and their elaborations of a traditional iconography to which they actively contribute. Rossellini, Visconti, De Sica, Zavattini, Antonioni, Pasolini, Olmi, and Rosi are among the directors whose work he discusses. The films include Paisa, La terra trema, La dolce vita, and Il deserto rosso.

Review:


"Vital Crises in Italian Cinema is characterized by an extremely sensitive attention to aesthetic issues. It is one of the very few books on Italian cinema that manages to put politics and art, film and society, together intelligently. Its new epilogue brings it ahead to another important milestone in the development of Italian film history."--Peter Bonadella, author of A History of Italian Cinema


"Vital Crises has been widely cited by Italian film critics, and has made its distinctive mark on the scholarly discourse in the field. The new epilogue continues P. Adams Sitney's strategy of strong contextualization, with readings firmly rooted in the political and social ferment of the 1970's."--Millicent Marcus, author of Italian Film in the Light of Neorealism
