[nice tight clean copy, appears unread; just a couple of tiny scuff marks on the front cover, no other discernible wear]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) Experimental filmmaker Brakhage's idiosyncratic take on various major film artists; these are transcripts of lectures he delivered at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1970 to 1973. Divided into three sections: "The First Book" (discussions of George Melies, D.W. Griffith, Carl Theodor Dreyer, and Sergei Eisenstein); "Comedy Tragi/Comedy" (Charlie Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy and others, Buster Keaton, Jean Vigo); and "Narrative as Religion" (THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI; Fritz Lang; F.W. Murnau, Alexander Dovzhenko).
