Cinematic criticism

Bazin was an important part of the criticism and study of cinema after the Second World War. In addition to having edited Cahiers du Cinéma until his last days, a four-volume collection (titled Qu’est-ce que le cinéma?) Of his works was published between 1958 and 1962. Two of these volumes were translated into English at the end of the 1960s and became important supports for American and British cinematography.

Bazin supported the films that showed what he saw as “objective reality” (like documentaries and films from the school of Italian neorealism) and the directors who became “invisible” (like Howard Hawks). He also defended the use of focus in depth (Orson Welles), open shots (Jean Renoir) and shots in depth, and preferred what he called “true continuity” through the staging of experiments in editing and visual effects. His opinion was the opposite of film theorist in the 1920s and 1930s, which focused on how cinema can manipulate reality.

Bazin believed that a film should represent the director’s personal vision. This idea was of great importance for the development of the auteur theory, which originated in an article by François Truffaut in Cahiers du Cinéma. Bazin was also a follower of “appreciative criticism,” in which critics can only write about the films they liked and thus promote constructive criticism.
