THE INVENTION OF ROBERT BRESSON: THE AUTEUR AND HIS MARKET. Colin Burnett. Indiana University Press, Bloomington, 2016. 320 pp. with 35 ills. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780253024862 In English.
Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 175258. Publisher's description: Challenging the prevailing notion among cinephiles that the auteur is an isolated genius interested primarily in individualism, Colin Burnett positions Robert Bresson as one whose life's work confronts the cultural forces that helped shape it. Regarded as one of film history's most elusive figures, Bresson (1901-1999) carried himself as an auteur long before cultural magazines, like the famed Cahiers du cinema, advanced the term to describe such directors as Jacques Tati, Alfred Hitchcock, and Jean-Luc Godard. In this groundbreaking study, Burnett combines biography with cultural history to uncover the roots of the auteur in the alternative cultural marketplace of midcentury France.
