This is a close reading of "Bicycle thieves" by Millicent Marcus, the Mariano Di Vito Professor of Italian Studies and Director of the Center for Italian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania.
Riding Towards the Future is a text on Wang Xiaoshuai's movie "Beijing Bicycle" written by Elizabeth Wright for Senses of Cinema, "an online journal devoted to the serious and eclectic discussion of cinema". She recently completed her honours year in film studies at Monash University (Melbourne). Her thesis focused on the film aesthetic of Wong Kar-wai.
"Neorealism and Pure Cinema: The Bicycle Thief" is an essay by Andre Bazin on Vittorio de Sica's "The Bicycle Thieves" (Ladri di biciclette) from 1948. Bazin calls the movie "pure cinema"; that is, it tells a simple story composed of "real" events involving "real" people in "real" places. The truth of its extraordinary emotional impact is another element of the story's purity. Bazin is commonly regarded as one of the most important or influential writer on cinema. He was a co-founder of the French film review "Cahiers du cinéma"
