Description de l'ouvrage :
The Cinema of Takeshi Kitano: Flowering Blood is a detailed aesthetic, Deleuzian, and phenomenological exploration of Japan's finest currently-working film director, performer, and celebrity. The volume uniquely explores Kitano's oeuvre through the tropes of stillness and movement, becoming animal, melancholy and loss, intensity, schizophrenia, and radical alterity; and through the aesthetic temperatures of color, light, camera movement, performance and urban and oceanic space. In this highly original monograph, all of Kitano's films are given due consideration, including A Scene at the Sea (1991), Sonatine (1993), Dolls (2002), and Outrage (2010).
Revue de Presse :
An imaginatively written self-reflexive academic's journey through the films of Kitano Takeshi.
(Isolde Standish, School of Oriental and African Studies)
A bold and provocative attempt at pinning down this most mercurial and misunderstood of Japanese directors. (Jasper Sharp, Midnight Eye)
