Cinema of Lars Von Trier by Caroline Bainbridge

Book Description

Lars von Trier is the most controversial figure of contemporary European cinema. This volume is the first book to analyse in depth the changes he has brought to modern film. Since founding the back-to-basics Dogme philosophy of filmmaking in 1995, von Trier's name has become a by-word for taboo-breaking cinema. As a director, he has courted media controversy through films such as "The Idiots" (1998), with its unsimulated sex and non-conformist politics, and through his complex relationships with actresses such as Bjork and Nicole Kidman, from whom he coaxed career-best performances in "Dancer in the Dark" (2000) and "Dogville" (2003) respectively. Analysing these films as well as recent works such as "The Five Obstructions" (2004) from a psychoanalytic perspective, it forges a new understanding of the founder of Dogme 95 as a great democratiser of cinema in the digital age, presenting von Trier as one of the most daring cinematic exponents of postmodern politics and satire.

Media and the Inner World: Psycho-Cultural Approaches to Emotion, Media and Popular Culture by Caroline Bainbridge Media and the Inner World: Psycho-Cultural Approaches to Emotion, Media and Popular Culture, Hardback (September 2014)

This book applies insights from the spheres of academic scholarship and clinical experience to demonstrate the usefulness of psychoanalysis for developing nuanced and innovative approaches to media and cultural analysis.

Feminine Cinematics by Caroline Bainbridge Feminine Cinematics, Hardback (October 2008)

This timely book provides new insights into debates around the relationship between women and film by drawing on the work of philosopher Luce Irigaray. Arguing that female-directed cinema provides new ways to explore ideas of representation and spectatorship, it also examines the importance of contexts of production, direction and reception.

Culture and the Unconscious by Caroline Bainbridge Culture and the Unconscious, Hardback (February 2007)

Since Freud, psychoanalysis has always concerned itself with questions of art, creativity, politics, and war. This collection of essays from leading writers on psychoanalysis explores questions of culture through a dialogue between psychoanalytic clinical and academic traditions.
