  • Film, Theory and Philosophyby Felicity Colman

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    Philosophy, and in particular continental philosophy, has provided a conceptual underpinning for cinema since its beginnings, especially in the development of cinematic aesthetics. In its turn, film has rethought the abstractions of space and time and the categories of sex and gender and has created new concepts which illuminate phenomenology, metaphysics... more...

  • The Movies in the Age of Innocenceby Edward Wagenknecht

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 39.95

    Upon its original publication in 1962, Edward Wagenknecht's The Movies in the Age of Innocence immediately earned recognition as a classic in the history of early cinema. A tribute to American silent film from the first-person perspective of one who grew up with the medium, the volume surveys the pre-feature and feature era of silent films from... more...

  • Harry Alan Towersby Dave Mann

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 45.00

    Harry Alan Towers' reputation rests upon a corpus of 95 low budget productions shot post-haste in every corner of the globe. He took an integral part, however, in the development of the protocols that now underpin much transnational film production; he must thus be regarded as a pioneer. Towers' slash and burn strategy focused upon parasitic,... more...

  • The Late Works of Hayao Miyazakiby Dani Cavallaro

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 35.00

    Once a favorite of mainly art house audiences, Hayao Miyazaki's films have enjoyed increasing exposure in the West since his Spirited Away won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2003. The award signaled a turning point for Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli, bringing his films prominence in the media and driving their distribution in multiple formats.... more...

  • Cinema Civil Rightsby Ellen C. Scott

    Rutgers University Press 2015; US$ 29.95

    From Al Jolson in blackface to Song of the South, there is a long history of racism in Hollywood film. Yet as early as the 1930s, movie studios carefully vetted their releases, removing racially offensive language like the ?N-word.? This censorship did not stem from purely humanitarian concerns, but rather from worries about boycotts from civil rights... more...

  • Race, Gender, and Film Censorship in Virginia, 1922?1965by Melissa Ooten

    Lexington Books 2014; US$ 79.99

    This book chronicles the history of movie censorship in Virginia from the 1920s to 1960s. Ooten uses the contestations surrounding film censorship as a framework for more fully understanding the dominant political, economic, and cultural hierarchies that structured Virginia in the mid-twentieth century. more...

  • Amateur Cinemaby Charles Tepperman

    University of California Press 2014; US$ 34.95

    From the very beginning of cinema, there have been amateur filmmakers at work. It wasn?t until Kodak introduced 16mm film in 1923, however, that amateur moviemaking became a widespread reality, and by the 1950s, over a million Americans had amateur movie cameras. In Amateur Cinema, Charles Tepperman explores the meaning of the "amateur" in film history... more...

  • Film Rhythm after Soundby Lea Jacobs

    University of California Press 2014; US$ 34.95

    The seemingly effortless integration of sound, movement, and editing in films of the late 1930s stands in vivid contrast to the awkwardness of the first talkies. Film Rhythm after Sound analyzes this evolution via close examination of important prototypes of early sound filmmaking, as well as contemporary discussions of rhythm, tempo, and pacing.... more...

  • Hitchcock on Hitchcock, Volume 1by Alfred Hitchcock; Sidney Gottlieb

    University of California Press 2015; US$ 34.95

    Gathered here for the first time are Alfred Hitchcock's reflections on his own life and work. In this ample selection of largely unknown and formerly inaccessible interviews and essays, Hitchcock provides an enlivening commentary on a career that spanned decades and transformed the history of the cinema. Bringing the same exuberance and originality... more...
