THE OTHER HORIZON? ON TADEUSZ SOBOLEWSKI’S BOOK KINO SWOIMI SŁOWAMI
The article is an attempt to look at the work of Tadeusz Sobolewski as a film critic in the context of his collected newspaper features in Kino swoimi słowami. Comparing earlier published texts (from the book Za duży blask) with these from the new book, the author describes the change of perspective with which Sobolewski looks at the cinema in these two volumes. Showing the style of Sobolewski’s writings, the article identifies the differences between the objectives of critical program (similar to hermeneutics) and the practical consequences, resulting from the selection of texts in the book. It also poses the question, what horizon opens up before cinema critics in connection with publishing Sobolewski’s texts from Kino swoimi słowami in a strictly scientific series Horyzonty kina (The Horizons of Cinema).
