AUTHOR

Rosenstone, Robert A.

SUMMARY

"Rosenstone offers some useful criteria for what makes a good historical film, what liberties it should and shouldn't take with the past. Then in a game but vain bid for popular relevance, he proposes film as a fully viable alternative to history books. He wants cinema that 'create[s] a historical world complex enough so that it overflows with meaning; so that its meanings are always multiple; so that its meanings cannot be contained or easily expressed in words.'"Rosenstone, Robert A. is the author of 'Visions of the Past The Challenge of Film to Our Idea of History', published 1998 under ISBN 9780674940987 and ISBN 0674940989.
