Summary "The Altering Eye covers a 'golden age' of international cinema from the end of WWII through to the New German Cinema of the 1970s. Combining historical, political, and textual analysis, Kolker develops a pattern of cinematic invention and experimentation from neorealism through the modernist interventions of Jean-Luc Godard and Rainer Maria Fassbinder, focusing along the way on such major figures as Luis Bu˝uel, Joseph Losey, the Brazilian director Glauber Rocha, and the work of major Cuban filmmakers. First published in 1983, Kolker's book has become a much quoted classic in the field of film studies, providing essential reading for anybody interested in the history of European and international cinema. This new and completely revised edition includes a substantive new preface by the author and an updated bibliography"--Publisher's description
