4.0 out of 5 stars A valuable text of a master of modern cinema, 7 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
Horton's book provides an invaluable introduction to the work of a master of modern cinema. He identifies the major themes that emerge in Angelopoulous' work, and then looks at some of his movies in great depth, including a detailed account of the narratives in each. This is meant to allow the reader that has not seen any of the films to gain an insight into the work.
There are two major problems with the book. The first is that it should have included more images from his films since Angelopoulos' work is so dependant on the composition of the frame etc. Also, there could have been room for a more critical approach to his work. As it stands, it feels like not enough questions were asked of an artist whos work ought to provoke more than mere reverance from those familiar with his work.
Otherwise, this is a stong into to A's work which, hopefully, will be added to as his career continues.
