Reviews - What do customers think about Hal Hartley (Pocket Essential series)?
The Unbelievable Truth! Jun 14, 2003
Concise and intelligent guide to one of America's most consistently entertaining and illuminating contemporary directors. Giving equal focus to Hartley's features and shorts - a format the director holds in high regard for offering the potential to experiment and freedom from the tyranny of narrative convention - the author competently highlights Hartley's recurring formal and thematic preoccupations. Some of the thoughts on the individual titles are a little subjective and a mistake occurs in reference to the name of a central character in Henry Fool, bit overall this is a strong introduction to Hartley's work.
