In Praise of Pauline Kael (15 person items)

" โ€œKael had a more positive influence on the climate for film in America than any other single person over the last three decades. She had no theory, no rules, no guidelines, no objective standards. You couldnโ€™t apply her โ€˜approachโ€™ to a film. With her it was all personal.โ€ โ€œThe most powerful, loved, and hated film critic of her time.โ€"

" "To love movies without loving Ozu is an impossibility." "Ozu developed a visual style that was unlike anybody else's. Although in some of the silent films at Facets you can see that he obviously studied Hollywood directors, he had certain visual trademarks that were all his own." "
