Product description

From Amazon

Thirty years after the publication of his classic American Cinema: Directors and Directions, Andrew Sarris has edited this comprehensive guide to international film directors. It covers the spectrum of significant filmmakers from Altman to Armstrong, Kazan to Kurosawa, Truffaut to Tarantino. With entries written by distinguished critics such as Dudley Andrew, Jeanine Basinger, David Bordwell, Raymond Durgnat, Roger Manvell, Gerald Mast, and Robin Wood, it will be a standard reference tool for many years to come. In line with Sarris's auteur theory of directing, the contributors consider the ways in which directors put their personal stamp on their work. Included with the assessments are biographical sketches and complete filmographies.
