An unsatisfyingly shallow overview of an already underdocumented subject
le 28 novembre 2011 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Putting this one away after reading about a third. I may come back to it at some point, but to be honest, I doubt I will. This book's editor, Richard Porton, has written a much better book on the subject called "Film and the Anarchist Imagination." Yet both texts suffer from the same problem: there's simply not a lot of material to work from. Whereas since the birth of the medium, there has always been a strong association between cinema and Marxism (see: classic Soviet cinema, the Hollywood 10, elements of the French New Wave, Latin American 'Third Cinema', or the vast body of Marxist film theory from the Frankfurt school onward), the sad truth is that anarchists traditionally haven't been filmmakers... or film critics... or film theorists. This collection, continuing the work laid out by Porton's other book, attempts to give an account of some of the few overlaps between cinema and anarchism that have existed. While there are some interesting tidbits of history to be gleaned from the book, unfortunately the essays are for the most part not very well written, and most give only a very surface level overview of the figures, institutions, and films they describe. This isn't to mention the unbearably corny layout, replete with fake advertisements. Maybe by giving up so early I'm missing some great essays (the one on cooperative cinema during the Spanish Revolution complete with budgets and accounting records seems to at least have more meat to it), but my general sentiment seems to be that instead of cobbling together the few scraps of information that exist on the subject, maybe anarchists should focus on actually making films. Then we'd have something to write about! Either that, or we should get better at writing film history.
