His witty, incisive criticism later worked exacting language into an exploration of the feelings and strategies that went into low-budget and radical films as diverse as Michael Snows Wavelength, Werner Herzogs Fata Morgana, and Chantal Akermans Jeanne Dielman. Expanded with an in-depth interview and seven essays written with his wife, artist Patricia Patterson, Negative Space gathers Farbers most influential writings, making this an indispensable collection for all lovers of film.
