An Actor’s Revenge (BFI Film Classics) by Ian Breakwell
English | Apr 1, 1996 | ISBN: 0851705243 | 55 Pages | PDF | 18 MB
An Actor’s Revenge is one of the masterworks of the modern Japanese cinema. Visually stunning, with some of the most imaginative widescreen camera-work ever seen, the film exemplifies director Kon Ichikawa’s self description: ‘I was trained as a painter and I strill think like one’. How Ichikawa transforms a melodramatic tale into a total cinematic experience is vividly analysed in fellow artist Ian Breakwell’s sympathetic study.
