Über diesen Titel


British national cinema has produced an exceptional track record of innovative, creative and internationally recognized filmmakers, amongst them Alfred Hitchcock, Michael Powell and David Lean. This tradition continues today with the work of directors as diverse as Neil Jordan, Stephen Frears, Mike Leigh, and Ken Loach. This concise, authoritative volume analyzes critically the work of one hundred British directors, from the innovators of the silent period to contemporary auteurs.

An introduction places the individual entries in context and examines the role and status of the director within British film production. Balancing academic rigor with accessibility, British Film Directors provides an indispensable reference source for film students at all levels, as well as for the general cinema enthusiast.

Key features include a complete list of each director’s British feature films, a comprehensive career overview that includes biographical information and an assessment of the director’s current critical standing, and suggested further reading on each filmmaker.
