review Farber on Film The Complete Film Writings of Manny Farber ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Manny Farber Ï 5 review review Þ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ï Manny Farber Manny Farber 1917–2008 was a uniue figure among American movie critics Champion of what he called termite art focused often eccentric virtuosity as opposed to white elephant monumentality master of a one of a kind prose style whose jazz like phrasing and incandescent twists and turns made every review an adventure he has long been revered by his peers Susan Sontag called him the liveliest smartest most original film critic this country ever produced; for Peter Bogdanovich he was razor sharp in his perceptions and never less than brilliant as a writerFarber was an early discoverer of many filmmakers later acclaimed as American masters Val Lewton Preston Sturges Samuel Fuller Raoul Walsh Anthony Mann A prodigiously gifted painter himself he brought to his writing an artist's eye for what was on the screen Alert to any filmmaker no matter how margi. This comprehensive 800 page collection of the film criticism of Manny Farber should be reuired reading or at least reuired skimming for everyone who cares about film and its styles its significance and the special techniues that endow individual movies with their uniueness and particularity Farber is most famous for a few of the terms in his eccentric lexicon of film elephant art termite art negative space the gimp but I find that he is most instructive when he shares his painter s eye view of a particular movie revealing the moments in it that shine with idiosyncratic liveliness and power The Jesuit Gerald Manley Hopkins would have called this inscape the dynamic individual thingness of a thing the design that gives it particular identity and for Farber it is this uality that makes movie going worthwhile If you read only a few of Farber s pieces you might be tempted to identify this inscape uality with a documentary like realistic atmosphere an ironic performance in the midst of sentimentality or an eccentricity of style but as you explore what he has to say you realize that what he loves is something deeper and richer albeit hard to defineWhat Farber hates is easier to talk about he hates bullshit inflated acting the unthinking application of a glossy Hollywood style portentously arty shadows and camera angles bogus Freudian symbolism as substitute for character revelation minimalist TV techniues designed to telegraph an easy message etc He may ridicule an acknowledged classic for its phoniness and then immediately turn around and praise an obscure little picture for the natural way its people eat at the dinner table But whatever he trashes or champions he does so in the service of what makes movies uniue and admirableSome illuminating and infuriating excerpts chosen almost at random from the first 150 pagesOn Disney s Bambi The worst effect of all this artiness is the preference now for cheap painting in place of the movement which was the main thing before No longer do the trees and flowers carry on like mad they are there for pretty and as the camera moves slowly over them and you drink up all this tinseled loveliness there is the lone deer on the distant hilltop a gold aura around him Mickey wouldn t be caught dead in thisOn Welles The Magnificent Ambersons In keeping with this eclecticism are photographic tricks from everywhere so unintegrated you can t miss them These aren t as objectionable as the general theatrical use of the camera which subscribes to the theory that six shadows are six times as dramatic as one and the blacker the better This eighty eight minute dim out negates nearly everything a camera can doOn Hitchcock s The Shadow of a Doubt Hitchcock shows here that sensationalism is not necessary to every part of a movie if the details of ordinary activity are examined for their fullest suggestiveness His most expressive moments are the sudden switches in emotion in midstride of an activity the abrupt change in the pace of a walk or the tone of a voice the sudden hurrying of people into position As a result he is producing movies of high uality As for his famous horror and suspense they are here On Preston Sturges The Miracle at Morgan s Creek Sturges has realized his trademark in this movie better than in any of his other films that is to keep a picture exploding from scene to scene with a great frenzy excitement and energy by gagging anything either for a laugh or to keep the pace and nature of the movie close to a rout Sturges films come very close to the energetic sadism of primitive comic strips like The Katzenjammer Kids and they are a fine pleasure

This was my 1000 page introduction to Manny Farber and worth it if only for this great comment on great acting ladies who havethe body of the bathing beauty the face and wholesomeness of the girl who plays Sister in family movies and the free swinging sexual lustiness of the vampire women But they also have the added jigger of sensitivity For that jigger they are indebted to Ingrid Bergman also they use her worst cuteness and that eager kind of acting intelligence which in some of the actresses makes you feel that they read and understood the script and then hid the hero s before he could read hisThere s so much but my only complaint at a thousand pages of three page reviews it takes forever to get a sense of Farber s genius since you only get a teeny bit at a time
