Oxford University Press, USA, Jul 7, 2011 - Performing Arts - 529 pages
An updated and expanded version of this classic study of contemporary American film, the new edition of A Cinema of Loneliness reassesses the landscape of American cinema over the past decade, incorporating discussions of directors like Judd Apatow and David Fincher while offering assessments of the recent, and in some cases final, work from the filmmakers—Penn, Scorsese, Stone, Altman, Kubrick—at the book's core.
