Preview

This chapter begins by revising and reassessing the Italian neo-realist movement as a filmic renaissance that, along with the French New Wave, has had the most profound impact on post-war cinema. It then considers how Harmony Korine, Larry Clark, Edward Lachman, and Gus Van Sant rework Italian neorealist aesthetics.
