9780819568441: Physical Evidence: Selected Film Criticism (Wesleyan Film)

An expert writer and thinker on movie history and directorial style, Kent Jones is among the most notable film critics of his generation. His sharp, informed analyses and cogent assessments of cinema and its practitioners have made him a significant voice both in America and internationally. Jones’ inaugural collection brings together the best of his reviews (on films including In the Mood for Love, A History of Violence, and The New World), evaluations of specific filmmakers (Wes Anderson, John Cassavetes, and the Coen brothers), polemics (on summer blockbusters, digital cinema, and Hollywood politics), and appreciations of other film critics. Several of these pieces are published here in English for the first time, having previously appeared only in the French journals Cahiers du Cinéma and Trafic. Physical Evidence is a penetrating and personal examination of contemporary and classic cinema, one that values nothing so much as seeing on the screen the proof—the physical evidence—of the filmmaker’s own personal quest.

About the Author:

KENT JONES is editor-at-large of Film Comment and the American correspondent for Cahiers du Cinéma. He is a frequent contributor to Bookforum and Cinemascope, associate director of programming at The Film Society of Lincoln Center, and a permanent member of the selection committee for the New York Film Festival. He is also the co-writer of My Voyage to Italy and other documentaries by Martin Scorsese.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this first collected volume, Jones (editor-at-large of Film Comment) displays not only vast knowledge of film, but also an undeniable love for the medium. From his review of Samuel Fuller's director's cut of the war classic The Big Red One to ruminations on such recent releases as David Cronenberg's A History of Violence, Jones expertly walks the line between academia and pop culture without sacrificing insight into either approach. In one of his most incisive pieces in the collection, Jones posits a narrative progression beginning with the works of film pioneers King Vidor and F.W. Murnau, through Robert Bresson and Nicholas Roeg, and ending with Terrence Malick's latest, The New World. Tackling every aspect of the filmmaking process—from the rise of digital effects to the influence of earlier critics such as Andrew Sarris and Manny Farber—Jones presents an engagingly personal journey through the medium that will attract novices and cinephiles alike.
