    Book Information

    Description

    The cinema of Lucrecia Martel provides a comprehensive analysis of the work of the acclaimed Argentine director, whose elusive and elliptical feature films have garnered worldwide recognition since her 2001 debut La ciénaga.

    This volume considers existing critical work on Martel's oeuvre, and proposes new ways of understanding it, in particular through desire, the use of the child's perspective, and through the senses and perception. Martin also offers an analysis of the politics of Martel's films, showing how they can be understood as sites of transformation and possibility, develops queer approaches to Martel's films, and shows how they offer new forms of cinematic pleasure. The cinema of Lucrecia Martel combines traditional plot and gaze analysis with an understanding of film as a material object, to explore the films' sensory experiments and their challenges to dominant cinematic forms.

    Reviews

    'This is a most insightful book, welcomingly short and easy to read. That does not mean it fails to engage critically with such complex theorists as Gilles Deleuze, Jacques Derrida and Laura U. Marks.'
    Bulletin of Spanish Visual Studies

    'The Cinema of Lucrecia Martel is a thoroughly researched and well-written study of one of the most innovative contemporary film-makers. Martin uses film theory, film criticism, interviews, and archival material to develop a detailed and insightful reading of Martel's oeuvre.'
    Modern Language Review
