  • Draculaby Peter Hutchings

    I.B.Tauris 2003; US$ 25.00

    Hammer Horror?s Dracula was released in 1958 to a mixture of shock, outrage and praise. Yet this version of the Dracula tale, directed by Terence Fisher, was a milestone both for British cinema and for the horror genre. It made an international star of Christopher Lee, and confirmed Hammer Films as one of the world?s leading purveyors of cinematic... more...

    Written by a world expert in Science Fiction, From Alien to The Matrix is a hugely entertaining and enlightening read and a new critical approach to SF films that considers them as autonomous creations and contributions to the genre and to the broader culture.

  • End of St. Petersburg, Theby Vance Kepley

    I.B.Tauris 2003; US$ 27.00

    Pudovkin?s epic is the most complex work of his brilliant career. The film was made to commemorate the Bolshevik Revolution?s tenth anniversary and it is a gripping recreation of the events of 1917 as well as the conditions and events that led to revolution. It is a remarkable interweaving of sub-plots, motifs and historical references, realised through... more...

    Filming the Modern Middle East' is the first comparative investigation of how modern American cinema and the cinemas of the Arab world represent Middle Eastern politics to their audiences.

  • Lebanese Cinemaby Lina Khatib

    I.B.Tauris 2008; US$ 30.00

    Modern Lebanese cinema can best be explored in the context of the Civil War, in part because almost all the Lebanese films made since its outset in 1975 have been about this war. Lina Khatib takes 1975 Beirut as her starting point, and takes us right through to today for this, the first major book on Lebanese cinema and its links with politics and... more...

  • Brazil on Screenby Lucia Nagib

    I.B.Tauris 2007; US$ 32.00

    Two periods of Brazilian film history are particularly notable for their artistic momentum: the Cinema Novo movement of the 1960s and early ?70s, and the film revival from the mid 1990s onwards. What makes them especially strong, this book argues, is their utopian impulse. By adopting Utopia as a theme, as well as a method of film analysis, Lúcia Nagib... more...

  • Elia Kazanby Brian Neve

    I.B.Tauris 2008; US$ 44.00

    In 1999, Elia Kazan (1909-2003) received an honorary Oscar for lifetime achievement; it was a controversial award, for in 1952 he had given testimony to the HUAC Committee, for which he was ostracized by many. That Oscar also acknowledged Kazan's remarkable contribution to American and world cinema, making such films as 'On the Waterfront' and 'A... more...

  • Night to Rememberby Jeffrey Richards

    I.B.Tauris 2002; US$ 25.00

    The Titanic was believed to be unsinkable. On the night of 14-15 April 1912, during her maiden voyage, she struck an iceberg and sank, losing 1,490 of her 2,201 passengers.

  • Iranian Cinemaby Reza Sadr Reza

    I.B.Tauris 2006; US$ 35.00

    Recent, post-revolutionary Iranian cinema has of course gained the attention of international audiences who have been struck by its powerful, poetic and often explicitly political explorations. Yet mainstream, pre-revolutionary Iranian cinema, with a history stretching back to the early twentieth century, has been perceived in the main as lacking... more...
