Jetee, Paperback (July 2016)
Chris Darke's study places Chris Marker's 'La Jetee' (1962) in its political, cultural and cinematic context, and provides a detailed analysis of its formal and stylistic elements, particularly Marker's use of still photography, references to other films, including Hitchcock's 'Vertigo', and its influence on other time-travel narratives.
Cannes, Paperback (May 2007)
Since its inception in 1946, the Cannes Film Festival has embraced the high-brow and the high-glam. Who is not familiar with Cannes' famous paparazzi scrums, beachfront happenings and world premieres? But, the history of Cannes is also famous for scandals and controversies. This title reveals tales from this festival's spectacular history.
Alphaville, Paperback (October 2005)» View all books by Chris Darke

He explores the film's unique combination of genres and styles, and its remarkable creation, the secret agent Lemmy Caution.
