Description:
One of the first books to explore the relationship between surrealism and film, Michael Gould’s 1970 book eschews conventional notions of surrealism as a mere movement, and recasts it as an all-encompassing sensibility. Written in an accessible yet highly charged style, Gould discusses the works of Duschamp, Dali, Magritte, and others, connecting them visually and thematically to such films as L'Age d'or, Ivan the Terrible, and Psycho. Featuring a deliriously broad selection of images to illustrate his points—from Da Vinci’s The Last Supper to Vertigo’s Kim Novak and Disney’s Bambi—this entertaining and thought provoking book will have you rushing to your computer to stream some cinematic surrealism.
