Love in the Time of Cinema (Hardcover)
Kristi McKim offers close-analyses of films in which attachment and detachment, intimacy and distance, ephemera and endurance become more visible and meaningful. Films discussed include Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire, Agn's Varda's Jacquot de Nantes, Doris D rrie's Cherry Blossoms and Olivier Assayas' Summer Hours.

"Kristi McKim is a keen, imaginative and moving analyst of texts - both cinematic and theoretical - and she writes in a powerfully evocative and poetic style that is nonetheless precise and rigorous. Her analyses of an international array of films are superlative. This is theoretical and critical work of the highest order, a highly original work of cinema studies and in particular of the representation of time and love in the cinema." - Matthew H. Bernstein, Emory University
