“In the final analysis, Ophuls is, like all great directors, inimitable, and if all the dollies and cranes in the world snap to attention when his name is mentioned, it is because he gave camera movement its finest hours in the history of the cinema. When Joan Fontaine mounts the staircase to her lover’s apartment for the last time, Ophuls’s camera slowly turns from its vantage point on a higher landing to record the definitive memory-image of love. For a moment we enter the privileged sanctuary of remembrance, and Letter from an Unknown Woman reverberates forever after with this intimation of mortality.”
Andrew Sarris, The American Cinema

 

The American Cinema has the monumentally timeless authority of an originary text – it does not appear to have been written as much as handed down from above…Of course, there is writing, very good writing, [but] it’s more than that. If you received it at the right moment in your life, and many people including myself did, it came with the force of a divination, a cinematic Great Awakening. I suppose that makes Andrew Sarris, its author, the Jonathan Edwards of film criticism.”
Kent Jones, Film Comment
