Описание: This grab-bag of movie westerns ranges from the best to the worst; from lavish, no-expense-spared Cecil B. DeMille epics to Poverty Row double bills; from big-budget John Wayne vehicles like "In Old Oklahoma", "The War Wagon" and "The Fighting Kentuckian" to the sort of bottom-drawer product delivered by Sherman Scott and Monogram; from prestige, star-studded westerns like "My Darling Clementine" and "How the West Was Won" to the depths of "The Toughest Man in Arizona"; from the expertly crafted, super-popular "B" stables of Gene Autry, William Boyd, Roy Rogers, Charles Starrett and company to the fly-by-night efforts of long-forgotten brands like "The Range Busters." All reviews carry detailed credits. The book is rounded out with a Hopalong Cassidy filmography and many reproductions of original film posters.
Автор: Maddrey Joseph Название: The Quick, the Dead and the Revived: The Many Lives of the Western Film ISBN: 1476665516 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781476665511 Издательство: Eurospan Рейтинг: Цена: 48320 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: For more than a century, Western films have embodied America's most fundamental doctrine - expansionism - and depicted, in a uniquely American way, the archetypal battle between good and evil. Westerns also depict a country defined and re-defined by complex crises. World War II transformed the genre as well as the nation's identity. Since then, Hollywood filmmakers have been fighting America's ideological wars onscreen by translating modern-day politics into the timeless mythology of the Old West. This book surveys the most iconic and influential Westerns, examines Hollywood stars and their political stripes and reveals the familiar Westerns tropes - which became elements in popular action science fiction and horror films. This then sets the stage for the Western revival of the 1990s and a period of reinvention in the 21st century.

Автор: David Deamer Название: Deleuze, Japanese Cinema, and the Atom Bomb: The Spectre of Impossibility ISBN: 1501317733 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781501317736 Издательство: Bloomsbury Academic Рейтинг: Цена: 48110 T Наличие на складе: Нет в наличии. Описание: David Deamer establishes the first ever sustained encounter between Gilles Deleuze's Cinema books and post-war Japanese cinema, exploring how Japanese films responded to the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. From the early days of occupation political censorship to the social and cultural freedoms of the 1960s and beyond, the book examines how images of the nuclear event appear in post-war Japanese cinema. Each chapter begins by focusing upon one or more of three key Deleuzian themes – image, history and thought – before going on to look at a selection of films from 1945 to the present day. These include movies by well-known directors Kurosawa Akira, Shindo Kaneto, Oshima Nagisa and Imamura Shohei; popular and cult classics – Godzilla (1954), Akira (1988) and Tetsuo (1989); contemporary genre flicks – Ring (1998), Dead or Alive (1999) and Casshern (2004); the avant-garde and rarely seen documentaries. The author provides a series of tables to clarify the conceptual components deployed within the text, establishing a unique addition to Deleuze and cinema studies.

Story lines took on a darker tone and western films adopted classic noir elements of moral ambiguity, complex anti-heroes and explicit violence. The noir western helped set the standard for the darker action and science fiction and superhero films of today, as well as for acclaimed TV series such as HBO's Deadwood and AMC's Breaking Bad.This book cover the stylistic shift in westerns in mid-20th century Hollywood, offering close readings of the first noir westerns, along with revealing portraits of the eccentric and talented directors who brought the films to life.

Описание: With this collection of reviews, fans of western movies can enjoy taking another special look at some of our favorites with western author Chuck Lewis as he offers us insight and a unique view of the films we like or even those we don't like. We might remember some of them with a nostalgia that doesn't match up with what the movie was all about. We think we know the stories, or what a good job of acting our heroes did, or perhaps gave no thought to the symbolism of the roles they played, but maybe Chuck can suggest something different.
The storylines of these movies are told here in detail and interspersed with appropriate and interesting observations. You will definitely learn while being entertained.
Most of these reviews are written with Chuck's subtle sense of humor, but all are informative and surprising at times. They offer interesting facts that never occurred to us when we first saw the movie, but all are honestly assessed with a bite that only Chuck Lewis can give us.
