    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2015; Not Available

    In the Taiwanese film industry, the dichotomy between ‘art-house’ and commercially viable films is heavily emphasized.

  • Tim Burtonby Johnson Cheu

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2016; US$ 65.00

    Since his early days at Disney, Tim Burton has possessed a unique talent and vision. His writing and directing credits range from big-budget features such as Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992), to the comically grisly The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) and Corpse Bride (2005), to the twisted fairy tale Edward Scissorhands (1990), to literary... more...

    Ambiguous, complex and innovative, Christopher Nolan's Memento has intrigued audiences and critics since the day of its release.

    This book focuses on amateur fiction film-making. What do you understand by the term 'home movie'?

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2013; Not Available

    For over three decades the major Hollywood studios have operated specialty film divisions, companies that were originally established to focus primarily on the European arthouse film market, before moving on to the burgeoning American independent film market and in the process transforming it in fundamental ways.

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2014; Not Available

    Magic Realist Cinema in East Central Europe explores the interlocking complexities of two liminal concepts: magic realism and East Central Europe.

In this critical and comprehensive survey, Aga Skrodzka moves... more...

  • Shane Meadowsby Martin Fradley; Sarah Godfrey; Melanie Williams

Danny Perkins, CEO of StudioCanal UK, credits Meadows... more...

  • The Sense of Film Narrationby Ian Garwood

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2015; Not Available

    This book investigates the sensuous qualities of narration in the feature-length fiction film. Sensuous narration takes place when details of visual (or aural) texture are foregrounded for storytelling purposes. For example, the image becomes 'soft' in order to signal the representation of a character's memory; a 'scratchy' version... more...

  • Celluloid Indiansby Neva Jacquelyn Kilpatrick

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2016; US$ 23.00

    Native American characters have been the most malleable of metaphors for filmmakers. The likeable Doc of Stagecoach (1939) had audiences on the edge of their seats with dire warnings about ?that old butcher, Geronimo.? Old Lodgeskins of Little Big Man (1970) had viewers crying out against the demise of the noble, wise chief and his kind and simple... more...

  • Studying City of Godby Stephanie Muir

    Columbia University Press 2008; US$ 14.99

    A leading example of a resurgent Latin American cinema la buena onda? in the early twenty-first century, City of God was a huge international popular and critical success. A combination of intoxicating, Hollywood-style genre film-making and hard-hitting, social-realist subject matter, it was hailed as a masterpiece at Cannes in 2002 and seen by... more...
