Item description for Complete Cinematic Works: Scripts, Stills, Documents by Guy Debord, Ken Knabb & Ken Knabb...

Guy Debord (19311994) was the most influential member of the Situationist International, the avant-garde group that triggered the May 1968 revolt in France.

While Debord's written work (including The Society of the Spectacle) is some of the most notorious in the world of political and cultural radicality, deemed "the cornerstone clich of postmodernism," his films have until now remained tantalizingly inaccessible.

Ken Knabb's translation of Debord's Complete Cinematic Works accompanies the long-awaited English versions of these films, which will be coming soon to the United States. The scripts are illustrated with 62 stills, and Debord's own annotations help elucidate the subtleties of these astonishing works, unparalleled in cinematic history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Complete Cinematic Works: Scripts, Stills, Documents?

Important Document Well Translated  May 6, 2004
I have found Knabb's translations very readable and surprisingly articulate. But since I don't know french, I can't say. Comparing this collection with the other I have of the cinematic works, the improvement is noticable. Recomended translation of a highly recommended body of film scripts. Some of the most interesting films I have ever come across! In these days of the Integrated Spectacle, Debord's work reveals more and more its timely importance and truly subversive quality. My only dissapointment in this volume is the size of the body text. A small price to pay for this translation hardbound.
