Serves as an excellent jumping-off point for primary sources but much of Reader's actual analysis or personal input has a sophomoric superfluity and general irrelevance that it smacks of padding. Funny that, as the book manages to be so light that it actually would improve by being longer and more thorough.
Still, there are fine observations and historical details in here that I would have appreciated had I not been s More scholarly in tone than the BFI guide by V. Still, there are fine observations and historical details in here that I would have appreciated had I not been spoiled by Perkins' brisk and stylized appraisal. As for Reader, I'm glad I read it no pun intended , and will use it as a handy research guide in future.

Feb 19, Realini rated it it was amazing Shelves: delightful , masterpiece. Roger Ebert said that: - One cannot simply watch this, one needs to absorb it - It is so simple and so labyrinthine, so guileless and so angry, so innocent and so dangerous… Indeed, there are a series of love affairs that mostly go wrong, but otherwise The Rules of the Games seem to involve everyone cheats on everyone else.
And yet it is so much more complicated than multiple, crossing love interests and the jealousy, envy, hate that can be involved therein. Andre Jurieu opens the narrative with his crossing of the Atlantic, the record established and the consequent media frenzy to cover the story. But he is very upset amidst his victory, because Christine de la Cheyniest, the woman he loves and for whom he has embarked on the perilous journey is not present there to welcome him and he feels betrayed.

To complicate matters in this complicated threesome that becomes a foursome and then more, Octave is a father figure who comes often to see Christine, he tries to protect her, but this affection becomes more complex. These characters and guests travel to the chateau belonging to the rich marquis and Le Jeu is at its peak. In this carnival of emotions, betrayal, love and deception we have servants that are involved: Lisette, her husband Schumacher and the would be lover Marceau. Animosities become friendships, platonic relationships get close to being intimate and there is a Dance To The Music of Time, to refer to another masterpiece.
The complexity of the intimacy, then the distance placed between personages made me also remember the classic: - Games People Play by Eric Berne There is a hunt wherein many rabbits, pheasants and other game are killed, but there is also a chase for rivals and human trophies.
The rivals physically fight each other, in some instances try and shoot one another, but then they also become close, in a strange contradiction of the initial conflict. Just when we expect one hero to become blissfully happy, he ends up on the ground and the reverse is true for others that we thought will reach a nadir and arrive at the finish line walking on their feet and even smiling.
