Books By Author Chris Darke

Jetee by Chris Darke 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 by Chris Darke 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 by Chris Darke Alphaville, Paperback (October 2005)

2005 is the fortieth anniversary of Alphaville's release. Chris Darke writes about how, working without sets, special effects, or even a script, Godard made a dystopian vision of a technocratic future city. He explores the film's unique combination of genres and styles, and its remarkable creation, the secret agent Lemmy Caution.
