FILM CRITIC THEORIST André Bazin





FILM THEORIST Andre Bazin




Introduction to André Bazin, Part 1: Film Style Theory in its Historical Context


Introduction to André Bazin, Part 2: Style as a Philosophical Idea


By Donato Totaro, Offscreen, Vol 7, Issue 7/July 2003


I can see in a previous post a link to part 1. Since these two popped up recently, thought is good idea to have the links in one place.


Also:


Back to Bazin Part 1: The Ontology of the Photographic Image

2008 post in Spectacular Attractions.


If you fall into the who the hell is Bazin category, or I’ve heard the name am a bit vague on his ideas, it might well be worth a quick zip through Dan North’s first para before tackling the Totaros. Or even sticking to it all the way through. He has included useful links including the Totaro. It all goes round and round.
