The Irish Times review of “Neil Jordan”

Cover for Pramaggiore: Neil Jordan. Click for larger imageThe August 9, 2008, edition of The Irish Times reviewed Maria Pramaggiore’s contribution to our Contemporary Film Directors series, Neil Jordan, in conjunction with a new book about the director published by Wallflower.

“Of the two books, Pramaggiore’s is by far the most rigorous. Her critical position hinges on a reading of the director’s oeuvre as being defined by his exploration of the postmodern gothic. . . . Both books are fine contributions to the study of this key Irish film-maker; if Zucker’s writing may be a little too Bakhtinian (or simply chaotic) for some, others will appreciate its intuitive moments. Pramaggiore’s will be a set text.”
