Rate this:
Examining architectural elements of original set designs used by filmmakers across Europe and the US, this book begins with the expressionistic and psychological sets in films such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Algol, then looks at the bleak view of the future in Metropolis, and experimental depictions of visionary modern cities in Asphalt and Sunrise, and in the more recent films Blade Runner and Dick Tracy. The cinema of the Weimar Republic is taken as a case study, as both architecture and film played an important role in the social and cultural self-definition of the young state. No index. 9.75x12".
