Nº 4 MANNY FARBER: SYSTEMS OF MOVEMENT
FILMS UNDER DISCUSSION. INTERVIEW
ABSTRACTIn this conversation, Jean Pierre Gorin and Kent Jones evoke and comment on the working methods and some of the main ideas of Manny Farber’s work, in contrast with the usual methods of film criticism: Farber’s writing accepts its own contradiction, staying away from categorization and aggressive classification, avoiding to depart form the synopsis. Farber searched for the DNA of his time in the movies, he conceived the cinematographic work as action, the images as plural, to focus most of his observations on the body of the actor, the set or the musicality of the film.
