Show Summary Details

Preview

British national cinema has produced an exceptional track record of innovative, creative and internationally recognised filmmakers, amongst them Alfred Hitchcock, Michael Powell and David Lean. This tradition continues today with the work of directors as diverse as Neil Jordan, Stephen Frears, Mike Leigh and Ken Loach. This concise, authoritative volume analyses critically the work of 100 British directors, from the innovators of the silent period to contemporary auteurs. An introduction places the individual entries in context and examines the role and status of the director within British film production. Each entry includes a complete filmography of the director's British work, as well as suggested further reading. The individual career overviews include biographical information and an assessment of the director's current critical standing. Balancing academic rigour with accessibility, British Film Directors provides a reference source for film students at all levels.
