Mark Rappaport,"the best kept secret of American cinema" has been for almost twelve years a regular contributor to 'Traffic'.  Here he writes on his own films as well as the films, filmmakers and actors he loves. But he does so mainly by developing a new and very personal form of criticism, one whose fiction is the internal wellspring. The film universe proves to be for Mark a place of permutations and meetings, as much as of improbable affects. Marcel Proust crosses paths with Alain Resnais in Marienbad, The Earrings of Madame de ... by Max Ophuls turns into a family movie, the heroine of Vertigo by Alfred Hitchcock becomes the mother of an improbable narrator. It is this singular art and indeed the very unique form film criticism that seemed essential express, inviting Mark Rappaport to design not only a collection of his best texts, but a complete book designed around them.
