Editorial Reviews

?Slater's guide to the study of Milos Forman reads like the well-organized outline of a dissertation research project that it is. He begins with an overview of Forman's cinematic career, provides a chronology of his life and work through 1986, and then moves to the heart of the book: the filmography and bibliography. These two sections function harmoniously to allow users several approaches to research. The plot summaries and analyses included in the filmography are occasionally redundant, but each analysis also acts as a bibliographic essay. This adds greatly to the value of the bibliography section, which is arranged chronologically and might otherwise be frustrating to use. A brief index expands the usefulness of the volume to the study of themes or individual characters, and to other persons involved in Forman's work: actors, screenwriters, critics. The fact that the bibliography includes only English-language (and primarily US) publications limits its value to advanced scholars, but is well organized, thorough within its limitations, and will prove a valuable resource to anyone interested in the study of Forman or Czech New Wave cinema. Recommended for specialized film collections, graduate students, and advanced undergraduate students.??Choice
