Weimar Cinema by Noah Isenberg

Book Description

Taken as a whole, the sixteen remarkable films discussed in this provocative new volume of essays represent the brilliant creativity that flourished in the name of German cinema between the wars. Encompassing early gangster pictures and science fiction, avant-garde and fantasy films, sexual intrigues and love stories, the classics of silent cinema and Germany's first talkies, each chapter illuminates, among other things: the technological advancements of a given film, its detailed production history, its critical reception over time, and the place it occupies within the larger history of the German studio and of Weimar cinema in general. Readers can revisit the careers of such acclaimed directors as F. W. Murnau, Fritz Lang, and G. W. Pabst and examine the debuts of such international stars as Greta Garbo, Louise Brooks, and Marlene Dietrich. Training a keen eye on Weimer cinema's unusual richness and formal innovation, this anthology is an essential guide to the revolutionary styles, genres, and aesthetics that continue to fascinate us today.

Books By Author Noah Isenberg

Grand Hotel by Noah Isenberg Grand Hotel, Paperback (August 2016)

A novel, in which, a grand hotel in the center of 1920s Berlin serves as a microcosm of the modern world. Among the guests of the hotel is Dr Otternschlag, a World War I veteran, Grusinskaya, a great ballerina now fighting a losing battle not so much against age as her fear of it, and Gaigern, a sleek professional thief.

Edgar G. Ulmer by Noah Isenberg Edgar G. Ulmer, Hardback (January 2014)

Edgar G Ulmer is perhaps best known today for Detour, considered by many to be the epitome of a certain noir style that transcends its B-list origins. But in his lifetime he never achieved the celebrity of his fellow Austrian and German emigre directors - Billy Wilder, Otto Preminger, Fred Zinnemann, and Robert Siodmak.

Detour by Noah Isenberg Detour, Paperback (August 2008)

Noah Isenberg's study of the film noir classic Detour draws on archival sources, unpublished letters and interviews to provide an illuminating account of its production history, its critical reception, its afterlife (including various remakes) and the different ways in which the film has been understood since its release.

Face of East European Jewry by Noah Isenberg Face of East European Jewry, Hardback (March 2004)

Offers a perspective on the short-lived romance of disenchanted Western Jews with the idea of a more authentic, more meaningful lifestyle in the East.
