Product description


A beautifully conceived and elegantly realised introduction to film performance. -- Stanley Cavell, Harvard University

From the Author

'Andrew Klevan’s beautifully conceived and elegantly realized introduction to film performance is not less than a superb introduction to the great art of film as such. For those beyond the introductory stages of understanding their fascination with film, the book will confirm and provide companionship in thinking about the power and the permanence of the memories of films and performances that inhabit our consciousnesses and the disproportionate shallowness of the words we customarily settle for in accounting for these stretches of our lives. For those whose love of various cultures of film, and of their histories, continues as essential to their imaginations of life, the care and pleasure in Andrew Klevan’s selection and treatment of his examples are causes for surprise and gratitude.'

Stanley Cavell, Walter M. Cabot Professor Emeritus of Aesthetics and the General Theory of Value, Harvard University.

'A first-rate work ... highly original in its approach, beautifully written, and elegantly crafted to make its strong case without wasting a word.'
William Rothman, Professor of Film, University of Miami
