    One thought on “So Long, Silver Screen”

    1. Ve en büyük sürprizSinema ve comics Şu sıralar en sevdiğim şey. Sinema tutkum çok küçüklükten beri var da comics gecikmiş bir merak.Sinema tarihine adını kazıyarak yazdırmış ikonik oyuncuların gündelik bir öykü içerisine enjekte edilmesiyle ortaya çok farklı ve çarpıcı bir şey çıkmış. Okuması zorlu, hayli yorucu ama bir yandan da keyifli.

    2. Completely original work by the noted French cartoonist, a romanticized and bawdy story of one man's love of film, especially fifties films. The drawing is accomplished and the story is unique and high energy and episodic and not always "coherent." It's more like short comics about film featuring famous film actors and various women in our hero's life who take a sometimes exasperated view of his obsession. He is a romantic, and maybe particularly crazy about sultry actresses of the period, but w [...]

    3. An odd graphic novel that is more reflective than narrative with respect to the tradition of cinema watching. "So Long, Silver Screen" has a sense of sadness that the artist/cartoonist Blutch attaches to the nature of films. Here he reflects on the image of Burt Landcaster and the great French actor Michel Piccoli (among others) through out their various roles. For the causal reader, they may need a footnote or two, but part of the fun is to go on the journey with Blutch regarding the subject of [...]

    4. A kind of abstract graphic novel about a love/hate relationship with the silver screen. Blutch's illustration and story is a bit critical at points but in the end it surrenders to an eternal and helpless love for cinema. Loved the reference on Burt Lancaster and the way women are portrayed (and used?) in modern films.

    5. I found this book, while browsing the shelves of the local library. I was drawn to the book by the description on the back cover. “What are the movies? What effect do they have on us? Why do we love them so much? Blutch addresses all these questions in a series of interlocking short comics that move between scholarly history, romantic theory and ribald vignettes featuring a motley cast of actors and topics including Burt Lancaster, Jean-Luc Godard, Luchino Visconti, Claude Cardinale, Tarzan an [...]

    6. While l appreciated some of the illustrations, I was very disappointed in this book. I found the sexual content gratuitous and adolescent and did nothing to contribute to what little story content was there. Some of the discussion on movies and their significance on individuals as well as culture was interesting, but the discussion quickly descended into a pretentious rant against the previous ideas. Perhaps I just missed something in the translation.

    7. Nota positiva di questo volume: i disegni sono davvero belli. Blutch, che non conoscevo, ha una naturalezza nel tratto fuori dal comune. Per il resto: bah. Una carrellata di osservazioni più o meno interessanti sul cinema e sulla sua fascinazione. Magari a qualcun altro piacerà.

    8. This comic is a bit different. The art is amazing as can be expected from Blutch but I got a little confused reading it. It's more of a visual essay than a “story.”It's like he is trying to work through some frustration here. There is no real resolution just a sort of gathering of ideas. He come across self-defeating at times and I feel like a little humor(like he has in the scene with the cat meowing in the alley) would make it more relatable. There are some really great lines in here. Here [...]

    9. Entrer dans les fantasmes d'un auteur de bd sur le cinéma, c'est découvrir des fantaisies plus visuelles que linéaires. Le fantasme fonctionne ainsi que le rêve, voir Godard pêcher des poissons extraordinaire qui dans l'instant pourrissent à quelque chose de magique et d'irréel, personnellement j'aime beaucoup le travail de Blutch.

    10. I was really excited waiting for this to be released and have to admit I was kind of disappointed. Some of the stories are fun; most of them are just kind of there. The artwork is fun but it doesn't make up for the lack of anything really going on in the stories.

    11. The art in this comic is beautiful, but otherwise I didn't get much out of it. The story is intentionally lacking in plot or logic, and I'm not enough of a film buff to understand all or even most of the references.
