    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2015; US$ 26.95

    From a legendary film critic and movie fan extraordinaire, the highlights reel of a life spent at the movies. Richard Schickel has been going to the movies for more than seven decades (reviewing them since 1965), and, in that time, he's seen, by his own count, somewhere in the neighborhood of 18,750 films. Call it "obsession," "lunacy," or a "grand... more...

  • On Slownessby Lutz Koepnick

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 34.99

    Speed is an obvious facet of contemporary society, whereas slowness has often been dismissed as conservative and antimodern. Challenging a long tradition of thought, Lutz Koepnick instead proposes to understand slowness as a strategy of the contemporary—a decidedly modern practice that gazes firmly at and into the present?s velocity. As he engages... more...

    I.B.Tauris 2000; US$ 27.00

    Abram Room?s daring 1927 film is the story of a ménage à trois ? one woman, two men ? set in a 1920s Moscow flat. Remarkable for its frankness, humour and corrosive assessment of the new Soviet society, Bed and Sofa has found new and enthusiastic audiences in recent years. more...

  • 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 It is a remarkable interweaving of sub-plots, motifs and historical references, realised through...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...

  • 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...

  • Children, Cinema and Censorshipby Sarah Smith

    I.B.Tauris 2005; US$ 35.00

    Children have long been one of cinema's largest audiences yet, from its infancy, cinema has in the minds of moral watchdogs accompanied a succession of pastimes and new technologies as catalysts for juvenile delinquency. From 'penny dreadfuls' and comic books to television, 'video nasties' and computer games, and more recently, gangsta rap, mobile... more...
