What People are Saying About This

Richard Gilman

Bert Cardullo's book of essays comes as an immensely welcome relief from the kinds of writing on film that have been most prominent in recent years. He is neither a cultist nor a meta-critic, but a passionate (though reasonable), widely cultured, and highly perceptive observer of films. What impresses me most about his work is that he neither seeks originality at any cost nor lets himself be intimidated by sanctified opinions. Anyone looking for fresh readings of some of the most interesting films in the repertoire, including some classics we thought we knew well, should buy, or borrow, Indelible Images.

Stanley Kauffmann

Film criticism today needs educated analysis without blinkered doctrine, seriousness without pomposity, insight without crankiness. All these virtues Bert Cardullo brings to his book, plus a passion for film that enlightens his views of the masterworks he examines. Welcome to Indelible Images.
