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. The book provides a comprehensive look at screenwriting, covering all the fundamentals (plot, character, scenes, dialogue, etc.) and such crucial-but seldom discussed-topics as description, voice, tone, and theme. These concepts are illustrated through analysis of five brilliant screenplays-Die Hard, Thelma & Louise, Tootsie, Sideways, and The Shawshank Redemption. Also included are writing assignments and step-by-step tasks that take writers from rough idea to polished screenplay. Written by Gotham Writers' Workshop expert instructors, Writing Movies offers the same winning style and clarity of presentation that have made a success of Gotham's previous book Writing Fiction, which is now in its 7th printing. Named the "best class for screenwriters" in New York City by MovieMaker Magazine, Gotham Writers' Workshop is America's leading private creative writing school, offering classes in Manhattan and on the Web at www.WritingClasses.com. The school's interactive online classes, selected as "Best of the Web" by Forbes, have attracted thousands of aspiring writers from across the United States and more than sixty countries.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Mexico, het afgelopen decennium. Drugskartels verscheuren het land. Journalisten, politici en agenten staan voor een keuze: elke dag in doodsangst leven of je ziel verkopen aan de kartels. Sadistische moordpartijen, corruptie en The War on Drugs zijn voor miljoenen inwoners dagelijkse kost. Tegen deze achtergrond speelt Het kartel zich af. Adán Barrera, leider van het El Federación-kartel, ontsnapt op spectaculaire wijze uit de gevangenis om zijn imperium weer op te bouwen. Er ontstaat een bloedstollend kat-en-muisspel tussen hem en DEA-agent Art Keller, met wie hij een verleden heeft. Winslow heeft bijna tien jaar lang onderzoek gedaan naar de werkwijze en ontstaansgeschiedenis van de kartels, waardoor hij op onnavolgbare wijze feiten en fictie weet te mengen. De gebeurtenissen in zijn roman komen dan ook vaak akelig dicht bij de werkelijkheid: slechts twee weken na de verschijning van Het kartel in de Verenigde Staten ontsnapte de beruchte leider van het Sinaloakartel, Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán - naar wie Winslow Adán Barrera modelleerde - op Hollywoodachtige wijze via een tunnel uit de zwaarbewaakte Altiplano-gevangenis.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The most innovative and creative screenwriting book yet, from an author who knows first-hand what it takes to get a movie made. Based on an award-winning website hailed as "smart enough for professional screenwriters and accessible enough for aspiring screenwriters", Crafty Screenwriting is the first book not only to offer a successful screenwriter's tricks of the trade, but to explain what development executives really mean when they complain that the "dialogue is flat," or "the hero isn't likeable." Fresh, provocative, and funny, Alex Epstein diagnoses problem that other screenwriting books barely address, and answers questions they rarely ask, like "Why is it sometimes dangerous to know your characters too well before you start writing," or "Why does your script have to be so much better than the awful pictures that get made every day?" As a development executive who has accepted and rejected countless screenplays, and a produced screenwriter himself, Epstein can take you into the heart of the most important question of all: "Is this a movie?" A crucial book for anyone who has ever wondered what it takes to get their movie made.

Language English, Spanish, And French

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.


The Book Movies That Mattered

The Publisher University of Chicago Press
Release Date2017-11-03
Genre Performing Arts
Pages 220
ISBN 9780226495682
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Why is Dave Kehr "one of the best writers on film the country has produced"? Jonathan Rosenbaum, his highly regarded successor as movie critic at the "Chicago Reader" from 1987 through 2008, has a good answer in his Foreword to this volume: "For the range of films and filmmakers treated, the analytical tools employed, and the intellectual confidence and lucidity of his arguments, Kehr's prose really has no parallels." In this "sequel" to "When Movies Mattered" (published in 2011), Kehr deploys those gifts in 50 brilliant pieces, ranging from a thoughtful discussion of the sobering Holocaust documentary "Shoah" to an irresistible celebration of the raucous American comedy "Used Cars." Although that first book featured pieces only from the "Reader," this volume also contains essays from "Chicago" magazine, where Kehr's column on movies appeared from August 1979 through September 1986 (his work in the "Reader" appeared from late 1974 through late summer in 1986). As with "When Movies Mattered," most of this material (and all of it from "Chicago" magazine) has not been reprinted or available online since its original publication. Readers will now have the opportunity to know more of what Rosenbaum calls "a body of work that . . . strikes me as being the most remarkable extended stretch of auteurist [director centered] criticism in American journalism." Although Kehr ended his career as a critic toward the end of 2013 when he stopped writing his weekly DVD column for the "New York Times" to become an adjunct curator in the film department of the Museum of Modern Art, his reputation will be further enhanced by this second collection of his outstanding work--definitely must reading for cinephiles.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: A unique perspective on half a century of American cinema -- from the audience's point of view. Tom Stempel goes beyond the comments of professional reviewers, concentrating on the opinions of ordinary people. He traces shifting trends in genre and taste, examining and questioning the power films have in American society. Stempel blends audience response with his own observations and analyzes box office results that identify the movies people actually went to see, not just those praised by the critics. Avoiding statistical summary, he presents the results of a survey on movies and moviegoing in the respondents' own words -- words that surprise, amuse, and irritate. The moviegoers respond: "Big bad plane, big bad motorcycle, and big bad Kelly McGillis." -- On Top Gun "All I can recall were the slave girls and the Golden Calf sequence and how it got me excited. My parents must have been very pleased with my enthusiasm for the Bible." -- On why a seven-year-old boy stayed up to watch The Ten Commandments "I learned the fine art of seduction by watching Faye Dunaway smolder." -- A woman's reaction to seeing Bonnie and Clyde "At age fifteen Jesus said he would be back, he just didn't say what he would look like." -- On E.T. "Quasimodo is every seventh grader." -- On why The Hunchback of Notre Dame should play well with middle-schoolers "A moronic, very 'Hollywoody' script, and a bunch of dancing teddy bears." -- On Return of the Jedi "I couldn't help but think how Mad magazine would lampoon this." -- On The Exorcist

READING: Bekijk de wereld van Vijftig tinten grijs opnieuw, door de ogen van Christian Grey. In Christians eigen woorden, en door zijn gedachten, overpeinzingen en dromen, geeft E L James een verfrissend ander perspectief op de liefdesgeschiedenis die wereldwijd miljoenen lezers betoverde. Christian Grey lijkt een man van totale controle; zijn wereld is duidelijk, gedisciplineerd en volstrekt leeg - tot de dag dat de jonge literatuurstudente Anastasia Steele zijn kantoor binnen valt. Hij probeert haar uit zijn hoofd te zetten, maar raakt meer en meer bevangen door gevoelens waar hij maar geen vat op krijgt. In tegenstelling tot andere vrouwen lijkt Ana dwars door zijn afstandelijke houding heen te kunnen kijken, voorbij zijn zakelijke successen en luxe levensstijl, recht in zijn gehavende ziel. Zal zijn samenzijn met Ana hem verlossen van de gruwelijke jeugdherinneringen die Christian elke nacht wakker houden? Of zullen zijn duistere seksuele verlangens, zijn dwangmatige behoefte tot controle en zijn zelfhaat deze jonge vrouw van hem wegdrijven en de broze hoop vernietigen die zij hem biedt?
