Poetics of Cinema by David Bordwell. This has led me to examine national cinema traditions (in my work on Dreyer, Ozu, and Eisenstein) as well as technological and production conditions (in The Classical Hollywood Cinema and The Way Hollywood Tells It).
Poetics of Cinema by David Bordwell. 512 pages, 7 10 inches. I’ve also posited some historical continuities that are transnational, such as the tradition of depth staging (in On the History of Film Style and Figures Traced in Light).

David Bordwell has divided this thorough introduction to Ozu's life and work into two sections. The first offers a theory of themes, ideas, and obsessions that run through Ozu's large body of films. The second treats each of Ozu's movies in turn, closely examining their individual particularities. Ozu's films are quiet and methodically paced, but richly rewarding and deeply moving. Rent any one or two of them and then settle down with this book. Yasujiro Ozu (1903-63) was one of the masters of modern Japanese cinema, yet his work is hardly known to most Western filmgoers. His spare studies of family life don't "translate" well for audiences used to the melodrama of Terms of Endearment.
It's a shame that David Borwell's Ozu And The Poetics Of Cinema (1988) is out-of-print, since it is the definitive book in English on Japanese . Bordwell discusses their criticism and makes observations and judgements as well.
It's a shame that David Borwell's Ozu And The Poetics Of Cinema (1988) is out-of-print, since it is the definitive book in English on Japanese master director Yasujiro Ozu. Donald Richie's book, Ozu: His Life and Films, is also indispensable, but it only focuses on the late films of Ozu. Bordwell has studied all surviving films and therefore has a greater overall analysis of the complete career of Oz.
