  • Down and Dirty Picturesby Peter Biskind

    Simon & Schuster 2013; US$ 17.00

    It wasn't so long ago that the Sundance Film Festival was an inconsequential event somewhere in Utah, and Miramax was a tiny distributor of music documentaries and soft-core trash. Today, of course, Sundance is the most important film festival this side of Cannes, and Miramax has become an industry giant, part of the huge Disney empire. Likewise, the... more...

  • The Name of this Book is Dogme95by Richard T. Kelly

    Faber & Faber 2011; US$ 16.03

    A spectre is haunting world cinema - the spectre of a Danish 'new wave' led by mercurial director Lars Von Trier. In 1995, when Von Trier and three comrades issued a 10-point 'Vow of Chastity' for the making of simpler, more truthful movies, cynics in the film business refused to take it seriously. Five years on, the international success of the raw,... more...

  • Close-up on Sunset Boulevardby Sam Staggs

    St. Martin's Press 2003; US$ 21.99

    Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard , a classic film noir and also a damning dissection of the Hollywood dream factory, evokes the glamour and ruin of the stars who subsist on that dream. It's also one long in-joke about the movie industry and those who made it great-and who were, in turn, destroyed by it. One of the most critically admired films of... more...

  • New Waves in Cinemaby Sean Martin

    Oldcastle Books 2013; US$ 16.98

    The term 'New Wave' conjures up images of Paris in the early 1960s: Jean Seberg and Jean Paul Belmondo, the young Jean-Pierre Leaud, the three protagonists of Jules and Jim capering across a bridge, all from the films of French filmmakers Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut. The impact of the French New Wave continues to be felt, and its ethos... more...
