(price-clipped) [nice clean book, minor browning to cloth at top of spine, no other discernible wear; jacket has a couple of internal tape-repairs, minor wear to extremities]. This selection of Sarris's reviews and essays, mostly dealing with politically-themed films from 1971 through 1978, "explores the often adversary relationship between political reality and film illusion in the recent cinema [and] in the vital social issues surrounding Watergate, the Hollywood blacklist, and the renewed interest in Nazi Germany. Sarris dismantles many of the film industry's questionable attempts at political relevance, reserving his praise for the few ideologically honest films that can survive his careful scrutiny." Among the individual films discussed at some length are THE CANDIDATE, THE GODFATHER, STATE OF SIEGE, THE SORROW AND THE PITY, SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE and HEARTS AND MINDS; also included are reviews of Norman Mailer's book on Marilyn Monroe and Richard Schickel's book about Douglas Fairbanks and American celebrity.
