Highly original yet unduly neglected by theoretical study, Werner Schroeter is one of the most influential directors of the New German cinema. This insightful and lucid introduction analyses the rich fabric of Schroeter's cinema. Drawing upon such theorists as Gilles Deleuze, Walter Benjamin and Bertolt Brecht, the author seeks to unravel the labyrinth of signs and images threading throughout Schroeter's films. The book cogently analyses Schroter's powerful use of allegorical montage, cinematic tableaux and gesture in his films and in turn the profound effect these innovative approaches have upon cinema spectatorship. This long-due introduction to Schroeter's vibrant cinema not only provides a groundbreaking analysis of the individual filmmaker, but also offers a deserving contribution to the wider field of cinematic theory.
