READING: Film blurs the line between myth and reality better than any other artistic medium, one could argue. Using movies to explore the unconscious realms of society in order to reach a better understanding of what drives it, this book examines filmmakers and films that center on schizophrenic themes of alienation, paranoia, breakdown, fantasy, dreams, dementia and violence, and that address—as entertainment—the schizophrenic experience. The loss of individual identity as reflected in the films is investigated, as well as the shamanic potential inherent in the broader theme.

READING: To break into the screenwriting game, you need a screenplay that is not just good, but great. Superlative. Stellar. In Writing Movies you'll find everything you need to know to reach this level. And, like the very best teachers, Writing Movies is always practical, accessible, and entertaining.

Also included are writing assignments and step-by-step tasks that take writers from rough idea to polished screenplay.

READING: David Bordwell and Kristin Thompson are two of America’s preeminent film scholars. You would be hard pressed to find a serious student of the cinema who hasn’t spent at least a few hours huddled with their seminal introduction to the field—Film Art, now in its ninth edition—or a cable television junkie unaware that the Independent Film Channel sagely christened them the “Critics of the Naughts.” Since launching their blog Observations on Film Art in 2006, the two have added web virtuosos to their growing list of accolades, pitching unconventional long-form pieces engaged with film artistry that have helped to redefine cinematic storytelling for a new age and audience. Minding Movies presents a selection from over three hundred essays on genre movies, art films, animation, and the business of Hollywood that have graced Bordwell and Thompson’s blog. Informal pieces, conversational in tone but grounded in three decades of authoritative research, the essays gathered here range from in-depth analyses of individual films such as Slumdog Millionaire and Inglourious Basterds to adjustments of Hollywood media claims and forays into cinematic humor. For Bordwell and Thompson, the most fruitful place to begin is how movies are made, how they work, and how they work on us. Written for film lovers, these essays—on topics ranging from Borat to blockbusters and back again—will delight current fans and gain new enthusiasts. Serious but not solemn, vibrantly informative without condescension, and above all illuminating reading, Minding Movies offers ideas sure to set film lovers thinking—and keep them returning to the silver screen.

READING: Deel 1 van de Napolitaanse romans Lila en Elena groeien samen op in een volkswijk in het Napels van de jaren vijftig, een tijd waarin het ondenkbaar is dat meisjes hun tijd verspillen met leren. De intelligente Lila moet van school om te gaan werken. Ze probeert aan haar milieu te ontsnappen door jong te trouwen. Haar beste vriendin Elena mag wél verder leren, maar beseft maar al te goed hoeveel slimmer Lila is. En mooier. De geniale vriendin is de eerste van Ferrantes vier Napolitaanse romans, waarin zij met groot inlevingsvermogen en in een onnavolgbare stijl vertelt over twee vrouwen en hun levenslange vriendschap, die even sterk om liefde als om rivaliteit draait. Ferrante vertelt met het verhaal van Lila en Elena ook het verhaal van een wijk, een stad en een land in een tijd vol veranderingen. ‘De momenten waar het echt om draait in het leven, dat zijn er maar een paar. De gebeurtenissen waardoor we zijn geworden wie we zijn, staan als een brandmerk in onze ziel geschroeid. We kunnen er nooit van loskomen. Hooguit kunnen we ze beschrijven. Dat is het verhaal van de Napolitaanse romans van Elena Ferrante.’ De Groene Amsterdammer ‘Als ik Elena Ferrante lees, kan ik niet meer stoppen.’ The New Yorker ‘Zoveel beter dan goed. *****’ De Standaard ‘Een prachtig beschreven vriendschap.’ VROUW ‘Ferrante weet met rake typeringen elk personage tot mens van vlees en bloed te maken. ****’ Leeuwarder Courant ‘Net zo heftig als een uitbarsting van de Vesuvius.’ La Repubblica ‘Ferrante concentreert zich op een postzegel die ze uitvergroot tot wereldformaat. ****’ NRC Handelsblad ‘Zadie Smith is fan – en wij ook.’ Vogue

READING: Duitsland, 1939. Liesel is pas negen jaar oud wanneer ze door haar moeder naar een pleeggezin wordt gebracht. Een van haar geliefde bezittingen is een zwart boekje, dat ze vond op het graf van haar broertje. In de jaren dat Liesel bij de Hubermanns woont, wordt ze een gewiekste boekendief.
