the reminiscences of those who met with Tarkovsky in the late 1970s
during his visits to Ivanovo and Yaroslavl for the first showing of

Madden, John
"The Poetry of Cinema"
The "cinema of poetry" studied here includes filmmakers such as Welles, Ozu,
Bresson, Cocteau, Tarkovsky, Bergman, Kurosawa, Godard, Bertolucci, Pasolini
and Mizoguchi. Though the (mainly European) art film is the chief field of
Madden's enquiry, his analysis takes in the whole of the history of cinema,
from the Lumiere brothers, through the silent era and golden age of
Hollywood to avant garde filmmakers such as Anger, Snow and Brakhage. Madden
reappraises the aesthetics of cinema and its affinities with poetry,
mythology, religion, magic and narrative art.

Suchánek, Vladimír
Topografie transcendentních souradnic filmového obrazu
(English: Topography of Transcendent Coordinates of the Film Image -
Introduction to the problematics of an image of art as a spiritual-aesthetic
reality). In Czech. Olomouc 2002. 261 pages. ISBN 80-244-0417-6.
[ English TOC | cover scan ]
This monography is dealing with the reality of existence of a work of
art as an artefaktum for the most part spiritual. Considering the
point of view of three elementar branches: theology, aesthetics and
arts. This reality is known, generally published but only marginally
and in hints. Subtitle of this work is more concrete and defines more
exactly the aim of the whole cogitation: spiritual continuity of the
work of art. The monography is divided into three elementary parts:
1. General introduction to the problematics of the existence of
the work of art and its basic structure of expression. The work of
art is classified among the context of the civilization development
and its aesthetic needs. The terms like artistic trash (kitsch),
possibility of rise, sense of existence, etc., are concretized here.
Further the basic means of expression: movement, colour, sound etc.
is contemplated and analyzed.
2. Short independent part on documentarity of the film image and
its authenticity like an image structure of communication.
3. Structure and analysis of the work of Andrej Tarkovskij in the
spiritual continuity of the production. Chosen the basic themes
(Landscape as a state of mind, Baptize, Mother, Filiality, etc.) which
are in his films and these are analyzed just from the point of view of
the spiritual continuity of human life and its tending. The whole
work is an introduction to a very wide theme, which could be called:
principles of the existence of a work of art. This large topic is
continuously defined and concretized by means of a number of analyses
(which are appendixes of each chapter) of various Czech and foreign
film works. The work as a whole tries to remind a very serious fact
that the real work of art, apart from its aesthetic, philosophical,
social and other values, is also a bearer of extraordinary spiritual
qualities without which it probably could not exist as a work of art.
