"This deep dive into three all-time great moviemakers is the perfect example of why eating your cultural vegetables can be endlessly rewarding, potentially even life-changing." * MovieMaker *
"Reading Transcendental Style now, it's impressive not just how vibrant and convincing a study of a cinematic aesthetics it is, but how prescient it feels." * Art in America *
"This is a joy to read, and all the more startling when discovering that Schrader was 24 years old when he wrote the original text." * Film Stage *
"The second edition, particularly graced by Schrader's new introduction, is especially salient not only for ongoing evaluation of Schrader's work as critic and filmmaker, but also as a contribution from Schrader himself to the critical task of interpretation and reception of new cinema and burgeoning cinematic movements. Like any number of Schrader's own screenplays or directed films, this volume rewards repeated visitations." * Journal of Religion & Film *
"Schrader's investigation of mid-century art cinema masters as extensions of spiritual art is worthy of our careful consideration, especially given the legacy of Yasujiro Ozu, Robert Bresson, and Carl Th. Dreyer. . . . Transcendental Style is a masterful work of structure, methodology, and art history." * Offscreen *
