    Oldcastle Books 2010; US$ 16.98

    In 1983 visionary director John Cassavetes asked journalist Michael Ventura to write a unique film study -- an on-set diary of the making of his film Love Streams.

    Salvador Dali is one of the most widely recognised and most controversial artists of the twentieth century.

King surveys... more...

  • 10,000 Ways to Dieby Alex Cox

    Oldcastle Books 2010; US$ 16.98

    40 years ago as a Graduate student I wrote a book about Spaghetti Westerns, called 10,000 ways to die. It's an embarrassing tome when I look at it now: full of half- assed semiotics and other attenuated academic nonsense. In the intervening period, I have had the interesting experience of being a film director. So now, when I watch these films, I'm... more...

  • Sirk on Sirkby Jon Halliday

    Faber & Faber 2011; US$ 14.57

    Douglas Sirk is one of the most neglected directors in American cinema. This book aims to rectify that and, through a survey of his career, to re-establish Sirk as one of the great stylists of Hollywood cinema. In 1937 Sirk left Germany, after a successful career in theatre and film, and came to Hollywood. From 1942 to 1958 he directed some 30 films,... more...
