Synopsis

This title considers the films of Michael Haneke, who has emerged as a major figure in world cinema over the last fifteen years. Austrian director Michael Haneke is recognized for films that explore the most pressing social questions of our time while simultaneously pushing the boundaries of style with innovative visual and sonic practices. "On Michael Haneke" is one of the very first and most extensive considerations of Haneke's work. Editors Brian Price and John David Rhodes have gathered contributors whose own work combines critical inquiry and close formal analysis to explore the philosophical, historical, and stylistic complexity of Haneke's films. This volume is divided into three parts, beginning with 'Violence and Play', in which contributors explore the relation in Haneke's films between violence and playfulness that complicates questions of media, representation, and morality. Essays in part 2, 'Style and Medium', investigate Haneke's stylistic innovation and the ways in which he can be seen as indebted to previous traditions and filmmakers, including the Italian neorealists, Alfred Hitchcock, Antonioni, and Robert Bresson.

Part 3 addresses questions of 'Culture and Conflict' by looking at the cultural and historical problems suggested by Haneke's films and exploring the relation between culture and film style. "On Michael Haneke" is both an introduction to the work of a major figure in world cinema and a model for modern media criticism. Scholars of film and television studies, cinephiles, and anyone interested in contemporary film culture will enjoy "On Michael Haneke".
