    8 12 eBook ñ Paperback 8 12 ePUBI have come to appreciate the films of Frederico Fellini very much and 8 12 is considered one of his masterworks In this volume DA Miller takes a closer look at one of the auteur's signature films in BFI 8 12 2008 The book is divided in to three sections 1 From No One to Someone 2 From Auteur to Person 3 From Substance to Style Throughout the book Miller analyzes the film with great detail and makes some interesting points for example he addresses the narcissism of a director having writer's block and indulging in personal fantasies As well as how the film in essence is an exercise in style where substance is secondary He also discusses Fellini's relationships with the church women marriage and other obsessions It's another worthy addition to the BFI series

    8 12 eBook ñ Paperback 8 12 ePUBI read this immediately after watching the movie for the first time to help understand the subtle aspects of 812 A lot of what's in here is helpful and insightful but the overly academic style is grating and frankly some of the points made are a bit far fetched and smack of a college English essay making grandiose leaps and speculations

    8 12 eBook ñ Paperback 8 12 ePUBMiller's essays are all filler flitting from one idea to another and not bothering to cohere to any logical argument This book was interesting at the beginning and highly frustrating by the end To be honest I felt somewhat condescended to as if the reader should blindlingly accept whatever ad hoc observations the critic makes about the film There are pages and pages on the uote I have nothing to say but I will say it anyway which Miller treats as a black hole swallowing up all his knee jerk theories Many of which are contradictory

    8 12 eBook ñ Paperback 8 12 ePUBMiller's thesis that 8 12 has no significant message in it's core seems like a reasonable one to argue However this essay is so rambling and disjointed that I had difficulty understanding both the structure and the validity of his argument Not to mention that inappropriate analogies and word choice eg Miller goes on at length of the role of the ass in the film make this a fairly unpleasant read Disappointing
