  • The Oscarsby John Atkinson

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2005; US$ 7.99

    Born as an exercise in studio self-promotion, over the last 70 years the Academy Awards have been responsible for more crimes against art, fashion, taste and talent than the complete oeuvre of Cher (herself an Awards-night favourite). Great actors and directors have been consistently, almost methodically, overlooked by the Academy in favour of journeymen... more...

  • Tim Burtonby Michelle Le Blanc; Colin Odell

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2005; US$ 7.99

    Tim Burton is a contradiction - a film-maker who has a unique style and yet remains grounded in the Hollywood studio system. How can someone who has such a distinctive personal vision survive in an aggressive and increasingly bland marketplace? How can he command such large budgets to realise his ideas? The answer is simple - Tim Burton may well be... more...

  • Stanley Kubrickby Paul Duncan

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 1999; US$ 5.99

    Kubrick was one of those rare directors who were both commercial and artistic. This is because he was not afraid to embrace genres such as War, Crime, Sex, Science Fiction, Horror and Love and, at the same time, stretch the boundaries of film with controversial themes: underage sex in Lolita; ultraviolence in A Clockwork Orange; erotica in Eyes Wide... more...

  • Steven Soderberghby Jason Wood

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2002; US$ 5.99

    Who is Soderbergh? Currently Hollywood's hottest hot shot, Soderbergh burst onto the independent scene with his provocative, multi-award winning feature debut sex, lies and videotape in 1989. With the film world seemingly at his feet the guy from Baton Rouge committed critical and commercial hara-kiri, producing a black and white film about the life... more...

  • Steven Spielbergby James Clarke

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2004; US$ 7.99

    At the pinnacle of his career and now in his fourth decade as a director, Steven Spielberg is firmly established as the world's most popular film-maker. Celebrated for his mastery of spectacle and fantasy he has, more recently, proven his skill as a craftsman of compelling populist drama. He is an icon of late twentieth century popular culture. From... more...

  • Ridley Scottby Brian J. Robb

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2005; US$ 7.99

    Who is Ridley Scott? The director of Blade Runner, Gladiator, Hannibal and the controversial forthcoming Kingdom of Heaven, Ridley Scott is one of cinema's most accomplished visual stylists. His films have included the phenomenally successful Blade Runner, a film which flopped in 1982 but has since become a cinematic touchstone for visions of the... more...

  • Roman Polanskiby Daniel Bird

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2002; US$ 5.99

    More than any other film director, Roman Polanski has obsessively explored sexual mores in the mainstream of movies. But a Polanski movie isn?t for the small-time art house crowd ? they are big screen events, whether it is the atmosphere of terror in Rosemary?s Baby or the reconstruction of forties film noir of Chinatown. Polanski was nominated... more...

  • Orson Wellesby Martin Fitzgerald

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2000; US$ 5.99

    A fat guy with a deep voice who drank a lot of sherry? An unreliable film-maker who always went over time and over budget? One of the most innovative storytellers of the century? He was all of this and more. Welles shocked Broadway with his all-black voodoo version of Macbeth, challenged the US government with his production of The Cradle Will Rock,... more...

  • Quentin Tarantinoby D.K. Holm

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2004; US$ 7.99

    Few directors exploded on the scene with the force of Quentin Tarantino back in 1992 with Reservoir Dogs. And even fewer directors saw their reputations plummet so fast so soon thereafter. But fewer still have seen their stock rise again so dramatically and definitively. Pulp Fiction consolidated Tarantino's standing as one of the most exciting filmmakers... more...

  • Martin Scorseseby Paul Duncan

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2003; US$ 7.99

    There is more to Scorsese's work than crime and violence. His characters are trying to attain some kind of spiritual peace with society, their family and themselves. In the end they try to make a decision they can live with. In Kundun, the Dalai Lama leaves Tibet. In The Last Temptation Of Christ, Jesus forgoes a normal family life to fulfil his destiny.... more...
