Watch: What is Neorealism?

August 22, 2014

We watched this short video essay a week or so ago and found we were still thinking about it this morning, specifically this quote: "What Selznick sees as waste and excess becomes the essence of a different kind of cinema and sensibility, in which shots linger and veer off to include others, in which in-between moments seem to be essential, in which time and place seem more critical than plot or story."

“The only great problem of cinema seems to be more and more, with each film, when and why to start a shot and when and why to end it.” – Jean-Luc Godard
