TEXTURE IN FILM. Lucy Fife Donaldson. Palgrave Macmillan, St. Martin's Press, Inc., New York, 2014. Palgrave Close Readings in Film and Television. 204 pp. with 51 ills. 23 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781137034786 In English.
Publisher's description: All films have texture. Texture has an important sensory dimension; it expresses the feel of something and thus evokes response. Texture also encompasses broader expressions of quality and nature, relating to the weaving of cloth, a web or a narrative. Texture in Film considers texture in film as both an aspect of materiality, and in the sense of an overall fabrication. Drawing on interdisciplinary perspectives of art, literature and music, Donaldson develops a stimulating understanding of a concept that has received little detailed attention in relation to film. Texture in Film contributes to the increasing body of work aiming to renew attention to sensorial experience in the cinema, through an approach to details of filmic decision-making and evaluations of style and meaning. Case studies include Ride Lonesome, The Shooting, Vertigo, Lost Highway, The Haunting, Singin' in the Rain, and an extended examination of Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia.
