Have you read his book on Dreyer, Speaking the Language of Desire , in which he wages war with Bordwell?
About This Item
Very interesting to see their different approaches, though I must say that all I know about Bordwell's approach to Dreyer comes from Carney's critique. I am friends with Ray actually and yes I know his book on Dreyer: one of the best on Dreyer in my view. But I also like Bordwell better than other film theorists.

I really love the stuff you have put here. Hollywood Incoherent is a much welcome and needed addition to the growing body of both s and cinema scholarship. One of the virtues of it is that it puts style at the center, rather than political ideologies, identities and historical and cultural significance. In many ways Berliner and to be fair, others must be mentioned in this regard, namely, Susan Sontag, Ray Carney, David Bordwell and a few others is attempting to return criticism to a position somewhat close to the aesthetic and artistic concerns that had been dominant in the decades prior to the Theory revolution of the s and s.
Yet Berliner is unafraid of theory and uses it when necessary. Indeed his book takes the time to define David Bordwell's concept of "parametric narration", rather than assuming knowledge on the part of the reader, and also makes a good case for why such a concept is perfectly valid in understanding general trends in s studio and independent filmmaking.

Still, in the end, Berliner follows in the matter and manner of "close reading", which concerns how objects in the movies create the effect they do, and what the implications are of such effects on the emotions of audiences. Two concepts that Berliner introduces that are helpful are those of "incoherence" and "perversity".
These words are redefined not as negative states of personal or collective organization or psychology, but rather, positive states of works of art. Uitgever: Bloomsbury.

Auteur: Aaron Hunter. Samenvatting Casting fresh light on New Hollywood — one of American cinema's most fertile eras — Authoring Hal Ashby is the first sustained argument that, rather than a period dominated by genius auteurs, New Hollywood was an era of intense collaboration producing films of multiple-authorship.
Centering its discussion on the films and filmmaking practice of director Hal Ashby Harold and Maude, Shampoo, Being There , Hunter's work demonstrates how the auteur paradigm has served not only to diminish several key films and filmmakers of the era, but also to underestimate and undervalue the key contributions to the era's films of cinematographers, editors, writers and other creative crew members. Placing Ashby's films and career within the historical context of his era to show how he actively resisted the auteur label, the author demonstrates how this resistance led to Ashby's marginalization by film executives of his time and within subsequent film scholarship.
Hollywood Incoherent: Narration in Seventies Cinema
Through rigorous analysis of several films, Hunter moves on to demonstrate Ashby's own signature authorial contributions to his films and provides thorough and convincing demonstrations of the authorial contributions made by several of Ashby's key collaborators. Building on emerging scholarship on multiple-authorship, Authoring Hal Ashby lays out a creative new approach to understanding one of Hollywood cinema's most exciting eras and one of its most vital filmmakers.
