Many art history students know of Clair's early dadaist film "Entr'acte" but I wonder how many have seen his later more mainstream 'light' feature comedies, etc? I've seen as many as I've haphazardly found, & liked them, but most of them aren't even close to as powerful for me as "Entr'acte". As such, I like Clair's work alot but he's not exactly one of my favorite directors. Nonetheless, I'm sure I read this bk w/ some rapt attn to his opinions. In fact, it wd be interesting to write such a bk myself! In this bk, Clair mainly discusses other people's work rather than his own. I forgive him for liking Griffith.
