Abstract

PART I The Analysis of Film By Raymond Bellour. Ed. Constance Penley. Bloomington, IN: Indiana University Press, 2000. $49.95. This long-overdue volume includes revised transla tion s of arguably some of the most influ ential article s on film published in the 1970s. Raymond Bello ur's writing s on Hitchcock's The Birds, North by Northwest, Marnie, and Psycho, for years available only as increasingly illegib le Xerox copies, have been re-edited and nally united in a single book. Also included are his analyses of sequences from The Big Sleep, Gigi, and The Lonedale Operator. Looking back and assessing the im pact of this work 20 years later is a difficult task, one that Constance Penley, editor of the book, undertakes in her introduction with dedicatio n, verve, and intelligence. Working before video made lms accessible to the viewer on a routine basis, Bellour was among the rst scholars to stress editing strategies as crucial to the way in which lm creates meaning for the viewer. Bellour emphasizes the analysis of individual sequences as a means of setting forth his general principle s about the nature of lm, more speci cally Hollywood lm.
