INTRO TO FILM- Experimental and Avant-Garde 01/11/2005 11:26:00 Rethinking how we treat realism in fiction 1952- Italian politics and it’s economy had changed.  IT became more  conservative.  American cinema adopted its own neo-realism Elia Kazan AFTER NEO-REALISM The French New Wave- 1959-1964 o Made by movie critics o Cahiers du Cinema Both neo-realism and the French new wave changed the way movies were  made.  They broke conventions.  No fucking shit! Jean-Luc Godard- director of Breathless  French New Wave is  avant-garde anything that violates some sort of conventions. Avant-garde- at the forefront                    Artistic Movements: First (avant) to experiment with breaking conventions Critics who studied classical cinema in order to play with it. Spielberg put tufo (French wave director) as some goofy credit.

Look beyond the real. The Unconscious- more real. We are repressed in out wakeful state. In our dream state we face our fears and desires. • DESIRE- can always associate itself with sexual arousal • FEAR- death • • Piere does not repress his sexual temptation. Fear stimulates him. ← ← ← 01/11/2005 11:26:00 ← 01/11/2005 11:26:00 ←...
