THE CINEMA OF HAL HARTLEY: FLIRTING WITH FORMALISM. Ed. by Steven Rybin. Wallflower Press, Columbia University Press, New York, 2016. Directors' Cut. 224 pp. with 24 ills. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780231176163 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 173896. Publisher's description: Over the course of nearly thirty years, Hal Hartley has cultivated a reputation as one of America's most steadfastly independent film directors. From his breakthrough films -- The Unbelievable Truth (1989), Trust (1990), and Simple Men (1992) -- to his recently completed 'Henry Fool' trilogy, Hartley has honed a rigorous, deadpan, and instantly recognizable film style informed by both European modernism and playful revisions of Classical Hollywood genres. Featuring new essays on this important director and his films, this collection explores Hartley's work from a variety of aesthetic, cultural, and economic contexts, while also looking closely at his collaborations with actors, the contexts of his authorial reputation, his reworking of the romantic comedy and other genres, and the shifting economics of his filmmaking.
