Suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, and unable to face a return to his family home in rural Nova Scotia, he goes in search of freedom, change, anonymity and repair.

Book Description :

This is the first book in English exclusively devoted to the long take, one of the key elements of film style. Increasingly visible in contemporary international media, the long take currently attracts a good deal of attention in criticism and commentary. There are also significant strands of film theory in which duration has become a recurrent concern. In keeping with the approach of Palgrave Close Readings in Film and Television, this collection is devoted to the detailed critical analysis of specific long takes, explored in terms of how they function within their contexts, how they shape the visual field, the meanings they generate and the effects they create. The Long Take: Critical Approaches brings together essays by established and emerging scholars (all but one essay commissioned for this volume) in an exciting collection that analyses works from a range of filmmaking traditions, from the 1930s to the present day, selected to represent varied long take practices and to explore associated debates.

Book Description :

In The Long Take, Lutz Koepnick posits extended shot durations as a powerful medium for exploring different modes of perception and attention in our fast-paced world of mediated stimulations. Grounding his inquiry in the long takes of international filmmakers such as Béla Tarr, Tsai Ming-liang, Abbas Kiarostami, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and Michael Haneke, Koepnick reveals how their films evoke wondrous experiences of surprise, disruption, enchantment, and reorientation. He proceeds to show how the long take has come to thrive in diverse artistic practices across different media platforms: from the work of photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto to the screen-based installations of Sophie Calle and Tacita Dean, from experimental work by Francis Alÿs and Janet Cardiff to durational images in contemporary video games. Deeply informed by film and media theory, yet written in a fluid and often poetic style, The Long Take goes far beyond recent writing about slow cinema. In Koepnick’s account, the long take serves as a critical hallmark of international art cinema in the twenty-first century. It invites viewers to probe the aesthetics of moving images and to recalibrate their sense of time. Long takes unlock windows toward the new and unexpected amid the ever-mounting pressures of 24/7 self-management.

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2018 Winner of the Goldsmiths Prize 2018 Winner of The Roehampton Poetry Prize 2018 Winner of the 2019 Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction 'A beautiful, vigorous and achingly melancholy hymn to the common man that is as unexpected as it is daring.' --John Banville, Guardian A noir narrative written with the intensity and power of poetry, The Long Take is one of the most remarkable – and unclassifiable – books of recent years. Walker is a D-Day veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder; he can’t return home to rural Nova Scotia, and looks instead to the city for freedom, anonymity and repair. As he moves from New York to Los Angeles and San Francisco we witness a crucial period of fracture in American history, one that also allowed film noir to flourish. The Dream had gone sour but – as those dark, classic movies made clear – the country needed outsiders to study and dramatise its new anxieties. While Walker tries to piece his life together, America is beginning to come apart: deeply paranoid, doubting its own certainties, riven by social and racial division, spiralling corruption and the collapse of the inner cities. The Long Take is about a good man, brutalised by war, haunted by violence and apparently doomed to return to it – yet resolved to find kindness again, in the world and in himself. Robin Robertson's The Long Take is a work of thrilling originality.

WINNER OF THE WALTER SCOTT PRIZE FOR HISTORICAL FICTION 2019 WINNER OF THE ROEHAMPTON POETRY PRIZE 2018 SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLDSMITHS PRIZE 2018 PRAISE FOR THE LONG TAKE 'A propulsive verbal tour de force . . . A hymn to destruction that exposes our country's betrayal of the American Dream in the years following World War II... When was the last time you said of a book of poetry, "I couldn't put it down?" Well, now's your chance.' The Washington Post 'Superlative.' Justine Jordan, The Guardian 'Books of the Year' 'The wondrous story of a Canadian veteran of the second world war who washes up in New York and then Los Angeles - told mostly in verse... Probably the best novel of the year.' The Economist 'Books of the Year' 'Hypnotic and wrenching... Robertson transforms the long take into an epic taking of life, liberty, reason, and hope in this saga of a good man broken by war and a city savaged by greed, an arresting and gorgeously lyrical and disquieting tale of brutal authenticity, hard-won compassion, and stygian splendor.'

Billionaire Harold Hopewell traveled the world, encountering people and letting their stories touch him. In death, he is giving back, leaving an unusual will filled with life-altering bequests to the people he met along the way. Maeve Nolan left Brogan’s Point ten years ago in anger and pain, planning never to return. She hadn’t known that Harry, her sweet, silver-haired friend, was a billionaire, but her unexpected inheritance from him lures her back to town. If she’s going to remain, she will have to mend her tattered relationship with her father, Police Detective Ed Nolan, and his girlfriend, Gus Naukonen—the owner of the Faulk Street Tavern. She’ll also have to deal with Quinn Connor, Brogan’s Point’s one-time golden boy, who’s changed his life but can’t escape the expectations the folks in town have of him. When the tavern's Magic Jukebox plays “Take the Long Way Home,” it casts its spell on Maeve and Quinn. Can they find home in each other’s arms?

Book Description :

Sailing the Forest, Robin Robertson's Selected Poems, is the definitive guide to one of the most important poetic voices to have emerged from the UK in the last twenty-five years. Robertson's lyrical, brooding, dark and often ravishingly beautiful verse has seen him win almost every major poetry award; readers on both sides of the Atlantic have delighted in his preternaturally accurate ear and eye, and his utterly distinctive way with everything from the love poem to the macabre narrative. This book is both an ideal introduction to a necessary poet, and a fine summary of the great range and depth of Robertson's work to date.

Book Description :

In the years between 1935 and 1975, a tangible transformation takes place in certain films of the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc. What was once the nationally-venerated cinema of rapid-fire montage under directors such as Sergei Eisenstein and Dziga Vertov becomes the slow, single-take study of individuals and their environments. At the same time, a parallel progression of the history of the Soviet Union and the countries comprising the Eastern Bloc occurs. With the death of Lenin comes the waning hopes of world-wide revolution, the rise of Stalinism and its monumental betrayal of the Soviet People, and social and economic woes as the Soviet Union attempts and fails to integrate itself into a capitalist world system under Brezhnev. The overtly-didactic essence of montage cinema, then, makes way for its obverse: narrative and political ambiguity introduced by the long take, and viewers who must fend for themselves. This dissertation examines three filmmakers whose employment of the long take -- the realist aesthetic par excellence -- both assists and complicates our understanding of the rich historical contexts from which they emerge. This comparative analysis of the work of Miklós Jancsó, Andrei Tarkovsky, and Sergei Parajanov situates the long take at its core and will reveal the multiple ways the device as trope is used to articulate the emerging, post-Stalinist subject, the ambiguous space of criticism, and the illusion of revolution as the antidote to the horrors of Stalinism.

Book Description :

WINNER OF THE 2006 FORWARD PRIZE In Scots, the verb 'swither' has two meanings: to be doubtful, to waver, to be in two minds; and to appear in shifting forms - indeterminate and volatile. From disarmingly direct poems about the end of childhood to erotically charged lyrics about the ends of desire, Robertson's powerful third collection is stalked and haunted by both senses. Hard-edged, pitch-perfect, effortlessly various, Swithering is a book of brave and black romance, locating its voice in that space where great change is an ever-present possibility. Swithering has just won the Forward Prize for Best Collection and is also shortlisted for this year’s T.S. Eliot Prize.
