9780674013469: Film Noir and the Spaces of Modernity
Críticas:

Urban transformations are the burden of Edward Dimendberg's fitfully brilliant study, Film Noir and the Spaces of Modernity: the passage of a historical city of old neighborhoods, traditional if often menacing public spaces, and anonymous crowds into the postwar suburbs, highways, shopping malls, and industrial landscapes...Dimendberg's animating insight remarks the coincidence of this radical reorganization in American space and the film-noir cycle--from 1939 to 1959 or, as he slyly glosses, from the New York World's Fair, the construction of Rockefeller Center, and publication of The Big Sleep to the Nixon-Khrushchev 'Kitchen Debate,' Robert Wise's Odds Against Tomorrow, and the death of Raymond Chandler. Film noir registers the fears and human toll of all that spatial mutation, yet obliquely, metaphorically, a sort of phantom parallel to everyday enterprise...[A] mostly dazzling scholarly investigation. -- Robert Polito Bookforum 20041001 Edward Dimendberg's aim in Film Noir and the Spaces of Modernity is to show how closely film noir is associated with 20th-century American urban experience...He shows with lucidity and persuasiveness how throughout its life, loosely 1941 to 1959, noir and its doomed heroes provided a filmic map of a period of disconcerting change...Dimendberg's book is a fascinating memorial to a film genre and a lost America. It should prove as durable as the urban sites it discusses turned out not to be. -- Christopher Wood Times Higher Education Supplement 20050304 [A] splendid, groundbreaking book...Film Noir and the Spaces of Modernity is a book that--as I can vividly attest--completely changes the way you view movies...[It is] one of the most outstanding publications in film studies over the past five years. -- Adrian Martin Cineaste 20050501 Film Noir and the Spaces of Modernity is the sort of title to get most film lovers fleeing the bookshop for the cinema, but they would be missing something worthwhile. After all, almost everyone loves noir, and anyone who has seen a few will have noted how anxiety and its relation to the modern urban environment seem to be constant themes. Edward Dimendberg noted it too, and has explored the connections with lucidity and thoroughness. -- Christopher Wood The Times 20050623 Film Noir and the Spaces of Modernity is the sort of title to get most film lovers fleeing the bookshop for the cinema, but they would be missing something worthwhile. After all, almost everyone loves noir, and anyone who has seen a few will have noted how anxiety and its relation to the modern urban environment seem to be constant themes. Edward Dimendberg noted it too, and has explored the connections with lucidity and thoroughness. -- Christopher Wood The Times 20050623 Dimendberg's concern is with the way film noir exploits our sense of anomie and alienation through its representation of the city and its varied spaces, the manner in which we are disturbed by the intrusion of the modern and its practitioners, and our nostalgia for a vanishing past and the sense of community it once represented. He draws on an immense range of professional and speculative thinkers from Le Corbusier to Jean-Paul Sartre...There is much of value in Dimendberg's book, including nuggets such as the suggestive notion that the recurrence of figures falling to their deaths from high-rise buildings is an instance of "Bernd Jager's assertion that falling entails a loss of lived space." He is at his best when analyzing individual films, as in the extended comparison between the sensational New York photographs by Weegee in his book The Naked City and the realistic film noir of the same name. -- Philip French Times Literary Supplement 20060505

Reseña del editor:

Film noir remains one of the most enduring legacies of 1940s and '50s Hollywood. Populated by double-crossing, unsavory characters, this pioneering film style explored a shadow side of American life during a period of tremendous prosperity and optimism. Edward Dimendberg compellingly demonstrates how film noir is preoccupied with modernity - particularly the urban landscape. The originality of Dimendberg's approach lies in his examining these films in tandem with historical developments in architecture, city planning, and modern communications systems. He confirms that noir is not simply a reflection of modernity but a virtual continuation of the spaces of the metropolis. He convincingly shows that Hollywood's dark thrillers of the post-war decades were determined by the same forces that shaped the city itself. Exploring classic examples of film noir such as The Asphalt Jungle, Double Indemnity, Kiss Me Deadly, and The Naked City alongside many lesser-known works, Dimendberg masterfully interweaves film history and urban history while perceptively analysing works by Raymond Chandler, Edward Hopper, Siegfried Kracauer, and Henri Lefebvre. A bold intervention in cultural studies and a major contribution to film history, Film Noir and the Spaces of Modernity will provoke debate by cinema scholars, urban historians, and students of modern culture - and will captivate admirers of a vital period in American cinema.
