3 Mindscreen: Bergman, Godard, and First-Person Film
Bruce F. Kawin
Dalkey Archive 2006 1564784614 / 9781564784612 First Thus Paperback Fine 
Very clean and bright softcover book. Appears to never have been read. No fading, creasing or chipping. No names, writing or marks. 241 pages with index. Originally published by Princeton University Press in 1978, this is the first Dalkey Archive edition. Author contends that a movie can be marrated in first person through a consciousness that originates either on the screen or off. The first book-length study of reflexivity in the cinema, this groundbreaking work examines the relationship between first-person and self-conscious narration, anchoring its contributions to narrative theory in rich, close readings of films that range from Sherlock Jr., Citizen Kane, and a Bugs Bunny cartoon to Persona and 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her. 023470
