On Pleasure: free Perkins in new Film Quarterly
Thanks to The Auteurs Daily, Film Studies For Free heard about the new issue of Film Quarterly (Vol. 63, No. 1, Fall 2009) which comes with a wonderful, freely-accessible article by V.F.Perkins: 'Reconsideration: Le Plaisir: "The Mask" and "The Model"'. It's a fabulously illustrated study of Max Ophüls’s 1952 film Le Plaisir, an adaptation of three short stories by Guy de Maupassant: 'Le Masque', 'La Maison Tellier', and 'Le Modèle'.
Other freely-accessible items in this issue include: Rob White, 'Editor's Notebook: Against Nature'; Joshua Clover, 'Marx and Coca-Cola: The Future in Labor'; Danny Birchall, 'Talking Point: The Avant-Garde Archive Online'
