Playing the Waves: Lars von Trier's Game Cinema (Film Culture in Transition)

Playing the Waves: Lars von Trier's Game Cinema (Film Culture in Transition) by Jan Simons
English | Sep. 15, 2007 | ISBN: 905356991X | 256 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Dogma 95, the avant-garde filmmaking movement founded by the Danish director Lars von Trier and three of his fellow directors, was launched in 1995 at an elite cinema conference in Paris—when von Trier was called upon to speak about the future of film but instead showered the audience with pamphlets announcing the new movement and its manifesto. A refreshingly original critical commentary on the director and his practice, Playing the Waves is a paramount addition to one of new media’s most provocative genres: games and gaming.

Audiovisions: Cinema and Television as Entr'actes in History (Amsterdam University Press - Film Culture in Transition) by Siegfried Zielinski
English | June 1, 1999 | ISBN: 9053563032 | 357 Pages | PDF | 57 MB

The production, distribution, and perception of moving images are undergoing a radical transformation. Ever-faster computers, digital technology, and microelectronic are joining forces to produce advanced audiovision -the media vanishing point of the 20th century. Very little will remain unchanged.
The classic institutions for the mediation of film - cinema and television - are revealed to be no more than interludes in the broader history of the audiovisual media. This book interprets these changes not simply as a cultural loss but also as a challenge: the new audiovisions have to be confronted squarely to make strategic intervention possible.

Overhearing Film Dialogue

Overhearing Film Dialogue
Publisher: University of California Press | ISBN: 0520221389 | edition 2000 | PDF | 335 pages | 13,6 mb

Since the birth of cinema, film has been lauded as a visual rather than a verbal medium; this sentiment was epitomized by John Ford's assertion in 1964 that, "When a motion picture is at its best, it is long on action and short on dialogue." Little serious work has been done on the subject of film dialogue, yet what characters say and how they say it has been crucial to our experience and understanding of every film since the coming of sound. Through informative discussions of dozens of classic and contemporary films–from Bringing Up Baby to Terms of Endearment, from Stagecoach to Reservoir Dogs–this lively book provides the first full-length study of the use of dialogue in American film.
Sarah Kozloff shows why dialogue has been neglected in the analysis of narrative film and uncovers the essential contributions dialogue makes to a film's development and impact. She uses narrative theory and drama theory to analyze the functions that dialogue typically serves in a film.
The second part of the book is a comprehensive discussion of the role and nature of dialogue in four film genres: westerns, screwball comedies, gangster films, and melodramas. Focusing on topics such as class and ethnic dialects, censorship, and the effect of dramatic irony, Kozloff provides an illuminating new perspective on film genres.

Thelma & Louise Live!: The Cultural Afterlife of an American Film

Thelma & Louise Live!: The Cultural Afterlife of an American Film by Bernie Cook
Publisher: University of Texas Press | Number Of Pages: 224 | Publication Date: 2007-10-15 | ISBN-10: 0292714661 | PDF | 4 Mb

When they floored their Thunderbird off a cliff rather than surrender to the law, Thelma and Louise became icons of female rebellion, provoking strong reactions from viewers who felt either empowered or outraged by the duo's transgressions of women's traditional roles. The 1991 film quickly became—and continues to be—a potent cultural reference point, even inspiring a bumper sticker that declares, "Thelma & Louise Live!"
In this insightful study of Thelma & Louise, six noted film scholars investigate the initial reception and ongoing impact of this landmark film. The writers consider Thelma & Louise from a variety of perspectives, turning attention to the film's promotion and audience response over time; to theories of comedy and the role of laughter in the film; to the film's soundtrack and score; to the performances of stars Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis; to the emergence of Brad Pitt as a star and male sex object; and to the film's place in the history of road and crime film genres. Complementing the scholarly analysis is an in-depth interview of screenwriter Callie Khouri by editor Bernie Cook, as well as reviews of Thelma & Louise that appeared in U.S. News & World Report and Time.

In the past seven years, I have made lecture presentations relating to film finance and distribution topics some 127 times to audiences which in the aggregate totaled in excess of 3,000 people. These seminar presentations were sponsored by such film industry organizations as the American Film Institute, the USC TV-Cinema Alumni Association, the UCLA graduate level Independent Producer's Program, the UCLA Anderson Graduate School of Management's Entertainment Section, UCLA Extension, Loyola Marymount Continuing Education, Cinetex and Cinewomen. Typically, these lecture audiences include producers, attomeys, screenwriters, executive producers, line producers, directors, distributors, bankers, broker/dealers, investment bankers, recent film school graduates and others seeking specific information or a general overview about film finance and distribution. One of the things that comes along with that much contact with so many people at different levels in the film industry is that I get questions and feedback from the audience. One of the most persistent inquiries over the years has been "Where can I get an example of a particular type of film industry agreement?" This book has been compiled and edited to answer that question.

The contributors to this volume negotiate the notion of a ‘classic’ in film and fiction, exploring the growing interface and the blurring of boundaries between literature and film. Taking the problematic term 'classic' as its focus, the contributors consider both canonical literary and film texts, questioning whether classic status in one domain transfers it to another….
