  • Auteuring Nollywoodby Adeshina Afolayan

    University Press, Nigeria 2014; US$ 40.00

    Beginning from an auteur standpoint, this book interrogates extant cinematic re-presentation of African and Nigerian postcolonial realities in Nollywood. It makes a case, using Kunle Afolayan?s The Figurine, for a critical space-clearing gesture around the notion of a neo-Nollywood, which transcends the formulaic cinematic re-presentation of African... more...

  • Billy Wilderby Glenn Hopp

    Summersdale Publishers Ltd 2001; US$ 5.99

    A bullet-riddled body floats in the pool of a faded screen star. A desperate wife and a crafty insurance man mix lust with murder. Two musicians flee Prohibition gangsters by joining an all-girl band. A likable loser climbs the corporate ladder by pimping for his bosses. Only in the skewed world of Billy Wilder would such situations provide the context... more...

  • Blaxploitation Filmsby Mikel J Koven

    Oldcastle Books 2010; US$ 14.57

    What is Blaxploitation? In the early 1970s a type of film emerged that featured all- black casts, really cool soul, R 'n' B and disco music soundtracks, characters sporting big guns, big dashikis, and even bigger 'fros, and had some of the meanest, baddest attitudes to shoot their way across our screens. More than that, for African-American audiences... more...

  • Boro, L'Ile d'Amourby Kamila Kuc; Kuba Mikurda

    Berghahn Books 2015; US$ 90.00

    There has been a recent revival of interest in the work of Polish film director Walerian Borowczyk, a label-defying auteur and "escape artist" if there ever was one. This collection serves as an introduction and a guide to Borowczyk's complex and ambiguous body of work, including panoramic views of the director's output, focused studies of particular... more...

  • Cassavetes Directsby Michael Ventura

    Oldcastle Books 2010; US$ 14.57

    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. Cassavetes laid out his expectations. He wanted 'a daring book, a tough book'. In Ventura's words, 'All I had to do for 'daring' and 'tough' was transcribe this man's audacity day by day.'... more...

  • The Cinema of Sean Pennby Deane Williams

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    Although best known as an Academy Award winning actor, Sean Penn?s directorial works The Indian Runner (1991), The Crossing Guard (1995), The Pledge (2001), and Into the Wild (2007), consist of some of the most interesting and singular films made in the United States over the past twenty years.

  • Close-up on Sunset Boulevardby Sam Staggs

    St. Martin's Press 2003; US$ 27.99

    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...

  • Dalí, Surrealism and Cinemaby Elliott H. King

    Oldcastle Books 2010; US$ 14.57

    Salvador Dali is one of the most widely recognised and most controversial artists of the twentieth century. He was also an avant-garde filmmaker -- collaborating with such giants as Luis Bunuel, Walt Disney and Alfred Hitchcock -- though the impetus and endurance of his fascination with film has rarely been given the attention it merits. King surveys... more...
