Staff Reviews


TIME IS A HOUSEWIFE. Jeanne Dielman is a movie about time. Jeanne is an image situated in time. Most will be able to read this excellent monograph by Catherine Fowler in half the time it takes to watch the movie. Spend time reading about government-funded European filmmaking, Chantal Akerman’s slow cinema feminism, and the incomparable international star power of Delphine Seyrig. Nearly 50 years after Jeanne Dielman’s release, this text stands as a discussion of and contribution to its afterlife.
