Cinematic Reveries Linda C. Ehrlich read online review & book description:

The 29 prose poems in ‘Cinematic Reveries: Gestures, Stillness, Water’ provide distinctive points of entry into a select group of films through attention to evocative gestures, a sense of stillness, and images of water. These original writings offer film criticism in a new form, with a tone that is at once exploratory, familiar, and elegiac. They explore the precious nature of water; they point to gestures both eloquent and obscure. They offer us moments of arrested motion as well as longer contemplative sequences in films from Asia, Europe, New Zealand, and the U.S. To cite a sentiment expressed by filmmaker Raúl Ruíz in his ‘Poetics of Cinema 2’, these are tributes to great films that «recognize [us] like an old relative». The reader is encouraged to explore ‘Cinematic Reveries’ as a portrait of the cinema which is at times lyrical, sometimes comic, and often tinged with pathos. This celebration of the art film is richly illustrated, with suggestions for further readings and viewings.
