HASH(0x8bc5d6f0) out of 5 stars Of course this will be brilliant..... 1 July 2012
By Robert C. Gaulke - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Ray Carney has brought a world of insight into the study of film. His books on Cassavetes, Capra, and Leigh have brought such an interesting perspective to bear on questions related to art & commerce in this society that I'm thankful not to have wasted the tuition money at film school.

When you realize that few people "get" the artists in their lifetime, you begin to understand the role of the scholar and the critic in unpacking the mysteries and questions of the artist. Their work is essential and it in no way detracts from the aura the artist's work gives off.

Release this book.
