Hi there. Sorry for the cross-posting. Anyway, I'm hoping someone out
there can help me with this. I'm doing a thesis on authorship in cinema,
and in the course of some casual reading, I serendipitously found out
that Duke University Press has just released a book entitled _The New
American Cinema_. In the review that I read (from the Summer '98 issue
of Filmmaker magazine), the book (edited by Jon Lewis) was commended for
the inclusion of an essay by Timothy Corrigan that serves as an
"analysis of the evolving role of the auteur." Although the review did
serve up a bit of an exposition of Corrigan's main idea, I was wondering
if anyone out there who has read the piece can offer a more detailed
reading of the piece. If I could, I would buy the book myself (auteurism
being very much a topic of interest with me despite it being currently
unfashionable), but it is rather difficult for me to come across it in
my part of the world. In connection, any thoughts on the topic itself
will be most welcome. Thank you very much.
