In a career that spans more than four decades, Frederick Wiseman has made thirty-eight films that together form a monumental chronicle of late twentieth-century institutional and cultural life. The dilemmas Wiseman poses in his films moral, philosophical, legal, medical, technological, political, religious and aesthetic are both urgent and vexing, from his controversial debut, "Titicut Follies" (1967), the only American film ever censored for reasons other than national security or obscenity, to his recent critical and commercial success "La Danse The Paris Opera Ballet" (2009) and forthcoming film "Boxing Gym" (2010). "Frederick Wiseman", the first publication in English to provide a comprehensive overview of Wiseman's work to date (including projects for theatre and opera), features original essays by a variety of distinguished writers, critics, filmmakers and actors, and by Wiseman himself. Richly illustrated with stills from his films, this volume is an incisive examination of one of cinemas most fearless and innovative filmmakers.
