Read Totally Tenderly Tragically

Read Totally Tenderly Tragically Totally Tenderly Tragically Summary ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¼ Phillip Lopate From the first New York Film Festival to the thirty second Phillip Lopate has made film his most cherished subject Here in one place are the very best of these essays a joy for anyone who loves movies This turned out to be a significant disappointment as I d previously uite liked Lopate s essay collection Portrait Inside My Head and his curation of the American Movie Critics anthology for the Library of America and so had figured that a collection of his writing on film would be close to a sure thing Instead this proved to be the first book in memory with which I was so disillusioned partway through that I had to put it on hold for close to a month before I had mustered the energy to finish it thankfully the books read in the interim served as uite wonderful palate cleansersThe writing included in Totally Tenderly Tragically spans Lopate s career from university to the time of publication the lack of dates associated with each piece was a freuent annoyance to me as it sometimes prevented me from determining whether discussion of a movie was contemporaneous or not and if not what length gap existed This choice highlights why authors often collections often limit their collections to representations a certain chronological window when such a wide gap of uality is reflected in one volume the callowness of the early work stands out far harshly than the increased sophistication of ageSometimes Lopate would append current day thoughts to the older pieces and these were in fact probably the most appealing portions of the book It was an innovative choice one I hadn t seen before in a book and which allowed Lopate to let time interact with the material in a fresh way but unfortunately there wasn t commentary on every piece and some of them were woefully short in length and on insight occasionally just providing information about the circumstances of the intiial writing or publication rather than re probing or noting changes in his opinion I would ve been fascinated to read his opinion of his own work in every case but it especially might have mitigated my sharp reactions to certain material that has aged uite poorly not opinion wise but in terms of dated world views or was simply under bakedThere is a tone to most of the essays that seemed appealing in the early going a certain appealing casualness Lopate s writing neither rigorously theoretical nor relentlessly focused on the commercial or entertainment prospects of films the fact that he was never writing from the formal position of full time theorist or critic gave him a latitude in approach and in word count that seemed promising But his pieces uickly became to feel academic not in a theoretical way which I wouldn t have minded but in a way that brought to mind college term papers where one is expected to synthesize others research and thoughts into something that shed slightly new light on a topic Lopate seemed uninterested or perhaps felt unualified to either strongly assert his opinions or ideas and frankly sometimes didn t even succeed in creating something new out of other peoples It s true that at times one can see him almost visibly straining make an effort toward provocation with a conclusion or assertion but he mostly just seems unsteady and unsure of his footing When reading film criticism my agreement with the writer s opinions factors uite low into my opinion of his work but I will say that a contrary opinion is made much palatable when it comes with conviction behind it Likewise there were instances of fairly apparent misreadings of certain films which had he elaborated he might have been able to clarify or make interesting or intriguing in the absence of such arguments however he merely knocked points off his own creditability without even having bothered to try defending itLopate occasionally seems to have theories established independent of the examples he cites and the imperfect forcing of material into a mold shows at times relatedly he can fall into repetitive patterns of thought without seeming to give much thought to his insistence on them even when his writing seems to be hinting at a case to be made against them Even structurally he sometimes fails to provide a suitable button to an essay making one wonder how it was accepted for publication elsewhere It s not always clear how much he actually likes movies despite his constant professing his love for them he seems interested in them at a considerable remove which makes his writing feel almost uniformly throughout the book much less personal than a that movie criticism I like best and b the work of his with which I was previously familiar and which I liked very much It is this latter lack which left me disappointed by this book as well as one other thing I realized over the course of the book his professional relationship to the movies has an unavoidable tinge of the amateurish giving his writing in this book a hobbyist feel his writing about himself is naturally that of an expert allowing for an assured style never found here
