In all his films, Peter Greenaway shows obsessive attention to detail, exaggerating the archaic and fabricating his plots out of an artificial realm of caricature and pastiche. This book examines his vision from a number of perspectives and traces a shift of sensibility in his work. A painter by training, Greenaway has made his reputation as a controversial film-maker with a strong visual style. The book focuses on his work as an artist, curator and writer, as well as a film-maker, and is illustrated with stills from his films.
