GreenCine Primers -- Your Guide to Movements and Genres

Dwoodwoo's picture
What Are Primers?

If you're like most people, you've probably heard of the French New Wave or Dogme95, but when asked at a party to explain what they are or to name more than a couple of films, you may struggle a little bit. Well, fear not! Going along with GreenCine's belief that DVDs are not just entertainment but film-schools-in-a-box, we're happy to introduce you to our own form of film education: Primers. They are meant to be a fun introductory overview of major film genres and movements, and to serve as handy guides in your rental selection process.

The primers, written by a mix of GreenCine staff writers and outside experts, will highlight the representative films of each genre available at GreenCine (while occasionally also wistfully mentioning those that are not yet available on DVD).

Primers and Discussions

First, thanks for your comment, Carstairs. About Mumblecore, it's such a new and still very much open-ended idea (the filmmakers themselves aren't too eager to call it a "movement") that it's probably best covered at our blog, GreenCine Daily. At least for now. Though we've been following these films for some time now, you can see two recent entries here and here. Tracing the line of what you're calling "experimental narrative," you mention several terrific films, to be sure, but they also, as you point out, belong to several different historical periods and many of them take radically different approaches to the experimentation you're addressing. In short, this would make for one enormous primer, spanning the full 100+ years of cinema history, and would probably have to be too big and bulky to even qualify as a "primer," once all's said and done.

Hopefully, we can all get a better sense of the evolution of such experimentation by taking one movement, genre, filmmaker, etc., at a time. As for recommendations, please do click "Public Discussions" in the lighter green box you see in the upper left-hand corner on any of the film's pages. A lots of requests for recommendations and a lot of replies go on right in there.

First, thanks for your comment,

First, thanks for your comment, I have recently started a blog, the info you provide on this site has helped me greatly. There is obviously a lot to know about this. I think he did some good things in features also. Keep working, great job! Thanks for a very interesting blog. What else can I get that kind of information written in such a perfect approach? I have a company that I'm simply now operating on, and I've been on the look out for such information.
