Transcendental style in film: Ozu, Bresson, Dreyer

Book Cover
Da Capo Press,
Pub. Date:
The acclaimed director of Mishima, American Gigolo, Hard Core, Blue Collar, Cat People also the screenwriter for Taxi Driver , Paul Schrader here analyzes the film style of three great directors--Yasajiro Ozu, Robert Bresson, Carl Dreyer--and posits a common dramatic language by these artists from divergent cultures. Unlike the style of psychological realism, which dominates film, the transcendental style expresses a spiritual state with austere camerawork, acting devoid of self-consciousness, and editing that avoids editorial comment. This important book is an original contribution to film analysis and akey work by one of our most searching directors and writers.
