5.0 étoiles sur 5Critical Analysis of a Great Actress!7 mars 2014
Par Michael OConnor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Meryl Streep is arguably the greatest living actress ever. Her list of awards is awesome. She's been nominated 18 times for Oscars - more than any other actor/actress ever - and won three times. Her string of 28 Golden Globe nominations - 8 wins - is also a record-setter. Then there's two Emmys, two SAG awards, BAFTA, an AFI Life Achievement Award, etc., etc. It's fair to say the kid can act!
Karina Longworth's MERYL STREEP, ANATOMY OF AN ACTOR is part of the CAHIERS DU CINEMA series, which examines the career and craft of oustanding actors. (Other volumes have focused on Pacino, Brando, etc.). Longworth's book explores and analyzes Streep's career development by focusing on ten iconic films, detailing the who-what-where-why-and-how of Steep's involvement and performance. The films include KRAMER VS KRAMER, SILKWOOD, OUT OF AFRICA, BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTRY and THE IRON LADY. Longworth interweaves biographical details with the film criticism to present a multui-layered portrait of the woman and the actress. The book combines probing, insightful narrative, comments from Streep and her co-stars/directors/etc. and a nice mix of b&w and color photographs.
Film buffs will enjoy Longsworth's book. It's certainly a step above - a big step above - most "The Films of XX" books. It's revealing and informative and helps unlock keys behind the work of a great actress. Recommended.
***** I have always had the same attraction to Streep's work that I have had to Laurence Olivier's. It's fascinating to watch them in action, seeing the obvious intelligence behind the work and marveling at their performance. Yet there's inevitably the realization that they're ACTING - it's technique - versus being the character. FYI.
