Description

places in focus not the canonical films of the time like Caligari, Nosferatu, or Metropolis, but instead important films of the "second rank" and specific thematic connections. Almost all the essays are conceived and formulated at a high level and make visible connections between film and society in the Weimar period. lives up to the promise of its title and should soon become mandatory reading for everyone interested in new perspectives on Weimar Cinema. Goes beyond a mere reevaluation of film classics in matters of film and topic selection.

Series: Screen Cultures: German Film and the Visual. 3: Humanity Unleashed: Anti-Bolshevism as Popular Culture in Early Weimar Cinema. Book Description: Traditionally, Weimar cinema has been equated with the work of a handful of auteurist filmmakers and a limited number of canonical films.

Traditionally, Weimar cinema has been equated with the work of a handful of auteurist filmmakers and a limited number of canonical films. Often a single, limited phenomenon, "expressionist film," has been taken as synonymous with the cinema of the entire period. But in recent decades, such reductive assessments have been challenged by developments in film theory and archival research that highlight the tremendous richness and diversity of Weimar cinema. This widening of focus has brought attention to issues such as film as commodity; questions of technology and genre; transnational collaborations and national identity; effects of changes in socioeconomics and gender roles on film spectatorship; and connections between film and other arts and media. Such shifts have been accompanied by archival research that has made a cornucopia of new information available, now augmented by the increased availability of films from the period on DVD. This wealth of new source material calls for a re-evaluation of Weimar cinema that considers the legacies of lesser-known directors and producers, popular genres, experiments of the artistic avant-garde, and nonfiction films, all of which are aspects attended to by the essays in this volume.

I am almost through reading this book and every essay is interesting and provocative. The book has encouraged me to seek many of the films discussed here and rarely available to the US market. The more I learn, the more astonishing the rise of the Nazis was considering the culture of Weimar.

I highly recommend this reference work. It's easy to read and if you want only one book on films made during the Weimar era, this is the one for you. It's not a general, encyclopedia-type source for information, but the essays here cover a wide range of films and topics such as the star system, multi-language versions, and plenty on Conrad Veidt. Many people are unaware "that what can be legitimately labeled as Expressionistic filmmaking constituted at best a small segment of the filmic output and by no means not the dominant one." There's lots of illustrations, especially for lesser known films, with descriptions that will increase your understanding of them. You can read the preface and an overview here.
