Quick Lit Shit #22: Figures Traced in Light

When he's not trying to settle some score or grinding some battleaxe blunt, Bordwell can perform some serious, and valuable, formal investigations. However, he's still a know-it-all, and kinda pompus, even here. As much as I know he must love movies, I don't know if his projects (now? ever? always have been?) aren't just a way to pump up his rep and not an honest interest in pedagogy, or plain enthusiasm. Take that, eminent writer! haha... --RWK

A Note: I'm humbled, some 10 months after dashing this off, by seeing the very end of this particular post at Bordwell's blog where he praises something I've written.


  1. Bordwell is on point. Which amazes me, because although everyone is supposed to read him in film school, it's still full of nitwits running around like chickens with their head cut off.
