9780847689903: Reconstructing Woody: Art, Love and Life in the Films of Woody Allen
Críticas:

Reconstructing Woody is an important contribution to the field of film criticism because few critics delve into the philosophical underpinnings of Woody Allen's scripts-and Nichols does this masterfully, with great perception, care, and depth. -- Ronald Schwartz, City University of New York It's about time we had the kind of in-depth study Nichols has written, with such rewarding insights. -- Vincent Canby What began as a diversion provoked a larger revelation. In both works Nichols discovered a writer mocking the pretensions of philosophers whose words prove to be empty as, well, clouds. Is this similarity enough to make Manhattan's Allen a modern-day Aristophanes? Her focus is always on Allen the filmmaker and never on Allen the home-wrecker. More importantly, it is her conviction that Allen's real on-screen preoccupation is not his sex-life, but the interrelationships between art and life. -- John C. Chalberg Crisis, March 1999 Miss Nichols' approach to the topic of Woody Allen is peculiar, as she is a professor of political science, not film studies. What she brings to Mr. Allen's films is a way of thinking and analyzing that is unavailable to the run-of-the-mill film studies professor or critic. -- Pia Nordlinger The Washington Times Is full of valuable insights, especially in the way it examines the philosophical nature of a number of Woody Allen's films. Offers the reader a strong foundation on which to build an understanding of Allen and his work. Rocky Mountain Review All film collections should include this title. -- P. H. Stacy, Emeritus, University of Hartford CHOICE What began as a diversion provoked a larger revelation.

Descripción ROWMAN LITTLEFIELD, United States, 2000. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 228 x 151 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For too long, the films of Woody Allen have been interpreted as expressions of deconstructionism, nihilism, and postmodern angst. In this pathbreaking new book, Mary P. Nichols challenges this, arguing that Allen s work, from Play It Again, Sam to Deconstructing Harry, is actually an attempt to explore and reconcile the tension between art and life. As witty and complex as its subject, Reconstructing Woody shows that Allen is immensely concerned with human ethics, goodness, and virtue. Nº de ref. de la librería AAC9780847689903

Descripción Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Paperback. 272 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 5.9in. x 0.7in.For too long, the films of Woody Allen have been interpreted as expressions of deconstructionism, nihilism, and postmodern angst. In this pathbreaking new book, distinguished writer Mary P. Nichols challenges these assumptions by arguing that Allens entire body of work, from Play It Again, Sam to Mighty Aphrodite, is actually an attempt to explore and reconcile the tension between art and life. As witty and complex as its subject, Reconstructing Woody shows why Allen, despite his recent personal turmoil, is immensely concerned with human ethics, goodness, and virtue. Ardent fans and strident detractors will view Woody Allens films from an entirely new perspective. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
