About this product
- DescriptionOne of the most significant contributors to the American independent cinema that developed over the late 1980s and 1990s, Hal Hartley has throughout his career created films that defy convention and capture the stranger realities of modern American life. The Cinema of Hal Hartley looks at all of Hartley's film releases - from cult classics such as The Unbelievable Truth and Trust to oddball genre experiments such as No Such Thing and Fay Grim to short films such as Opera No. 1 and Accomplice - and makes a case for seeing Hartley as an important and successful American auteur, despite the director's decline in status in the later stages of his career. Employing both industrial and close textual analysis, the book considers aspects of Hartley's work such as genre, gender and form, as well as dimensions far less frequently discussed in studies of indie directors, such as place and cultural identity, offering a broad and invative study of a productive filmmaker who continues to show a singular disregard for the expectations of both the mainstream and the indie cinema industries.
- Author BiographySebastian Manley completed a PhD in film studies at the University of East Anglia, UK, in 2011. He has written on subjects including Hal Hartley, independent cinema, early British film and Jan Svankmajer, and maintains a blog on animals in film called The Cinematic Animal.
