5.0 out of 5 stars The films of John Cassavetes, 30 Dec 2008
By 
MarkusG "Markus" (Stockholm, Sweden) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Films of John Cassavetes: Pragmatism, Modernism, and the Movies (Cambridge Film Classics) (Paperback)
Carney's book is scientific writing at its best. The book, despite the level of abstraction, is totally captivating. A lot of connections to sociological theories (pragmatism) are used to penetrate the characters and C:s way of filming (as well as interesting observations about Hitchcock and Orson Welles). Also, this is a book about being human as much as it is about the films of Cassavetes. The book is well structured with one film and analysis per chapter. I'm not a film student but I learned a lot from reading this. Highly recommended!
