Puzzle Films: Dr. Warren Buckland

Puzzle Films: Complex Storytelling in Contemporary Cinema (Blackwell) by Dr. Warren Buckland from Film Studies have just been published. The edited volume investigates a number of films that employ complex storytelling - from Memento, Old Boy and Run Lola Run, to the Infernal Affairs trilogy and In the Mood for Love. Professor Geoff King (Brunel University) describes the publication as ' A timely and insightful guide to some of the more complex and labyrinthine currents in recent cinema, drawing on an admirable range of examples from around the globe'. The collection unites American independent cinema and European and International Art film, and certain modes of avant-garde film-making on the basis of their shared storytelling complexity.
