  • What Just Happened?: Bitter Hollywood Tales from the Front Line

    Karton Kapak
    As a Hollywood film producer, Art Linson has had a hand in producing some of the most unforgettable films of the last half century--Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Untouchables, Fight Club--and has worked with some of America’s finest actors and directors. Dubbed by the Los Angeles Times “a breezy anatomy of ritual humiliation,” Art Linson’s Hollywood memoir What Just Happened? gives us a brutally honest, funny, and comprehensive tour through the horrors of Hollywood. To be released in 2008 as a feature film starring Robert De Niro and featuring appearances from Bruce Willis, Sean Penn, and John Turturro, among others, Grove Press’s reissue of Linson’s hysterical memoir will include a new foreword, the film’s script, and several black-and-white shots from the film.

  • Francis Ford Coppola: A Filmmaker's Life

    Karton Kapak
    Francis Ford Coppola: A Filmmaker’s Life is the first complete picture of the internationally renowned and controversial cinematic genius who directed such films as the Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation, and dozens more -- some wildly successful, some utterly disastrous. He is Hollywood’s perennial outsider, admired and respected for his courage and individualism, but still criticized for being a gambler in a business where success is measured by box-office receipts. Michael Schumacher tells the entire history of this masterful filmmaker. Coppola reveals for the first time:* The whole story of his early years, including his “skin flick,” his slasher movie, and his years with Roger Corman.* The reason behind the most controversial casting decision of his career: putting his daughter, Sofia, in The Godfather, Part III.* The impact of the loss of his son, Gio, on his work and his life.With unprecedented access to Coppola’s friends, critics, peers, casts, and crews, Schumacher creates an irresistible read, showing all the aspects of one of the most complex, conflicted filmmakers of our time.

  • Popcorn (Fifty Years of Rock 'n' Roll Movies)

    Sert Kapak
    Hugely acclaimed author of THIS IS UNCOOL and FEAR OF MUSIC turns his attention to rock 'n' roll movies., From Blackboard Jungle to Quadrophenia, from 8 Mile to Abba: the Movie, no one has seriously looked at the strange phenomenon that is the rock 'n' roll movie. Garry Mulholland, critically acclaimed author of This Is Uncool and Fear of Music, turns his focus away from classic records to the best, the worst, the weird and the completely deranged from the world of the rock movie. Part serious critical appreciation, part celebration of B-movie trash, Garry Mulholland's inclusive approach is the key to his success. He is as comfortable deconstructing the likes of Performance, Gimme Shelter or Jubilee as he is celebrating Footloose or Jailhouse Rock. As he writes: ' ...Anyone who rejects the joy that the likes of Grease or Dirty Dancing or Fame have brought to millions of people without even attempting to engage with why such unapologetic trash works can't really be that interested in filmgoers at all.' Popcorn aims to be the first and last word on music in film., '[An] archly entertaining and often passionate anthology of "50 years of rock'n'roll movies", which celebrates and bemoans music movies in all their vivid, outlandish and occasionally brilliant glory... the book compels us to revisit and reappraise films either forgotten or simply unloved. It also proves that, despite popular opinion, rock'n'roll movies can in the right hands be beautiful too.' INDEPENDENT 'Entertaining, cherry-picking saunter through half a century of musical celluloid... It's a book that will pique the interest of DVD completists and historians of popular culture alike.****' -- David Sheppard MOJO 'A refreshing, original account of pop culture, permeated with affectionate knowledge of its subject, this list is a gleeful, idiosyncratic and knowledgeable as you'd expect from Mulholland.' METRO 'Mulholland is an amiable guide through his selection of the hundred most important rock movies... His writing is breezy chatty and fitfully humorous' OBSERVER 'For post-war baby boomers - we who grew up in the 1950s - this is like Proust... Entertainingly, the rock journalist motors us on a long and winding road past every milestone in pop music movies.' FINANCIAL TIMES 'The author is terrific at maintaining a balance between the enthusiast's excitement and critical deconstruction and adds his own schmaltz-free recollections to provide personal contextO and establish writer/reader connection. Popcorn is a love-fuelled but also level-headed compendium' TIME OUT 'Smart, opinionated and always readable... it's ideal for dipping into and makes you want to watch the films as well as read about them.' Q magazine 'You're not going to agree with every choice, but you should definitely enjoy a list which awards five stars to Slade in Flame and a measly one to The Doors.' SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY 'Compelling reading' GLASGOW HERALD 'Mulholland's writing is pithy, witty and displays limitless knowledge of his subject.' MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS 'Once I started going through the list I couldn't stop... Overcoming my initial misgivings, I thoroughly enjoyed 'Popcorn' and will surely return to it on many occasions.' THE BEAT '[This] compact books is the perfect length and style: pithy, irreverant and on the money about the best movies and makers.' FINANCIAL TIMES - Books of the Year 2010, As well as being the author of THIS IS UNCOOL and FEAR OF MUSIC, Garry Mulholland has contributed frequently to the GUARDIAN and TIME OUT. He currently writes for the OBSERVER MUSIC MONTHLY and Q., This is Uncool and Fear of Music are classics of music writing; the former received huge acclaim in 2002; the latter has just had its first five-star review (Observer Music Monthly, Oct 06) No such book exists Garry Muholland is known for his music writing but his other passion is film

  • Adventures of Perception: Cinema as Exploration

    Karton Kapak
    Over the past twenty-five years, Scott MacDonald's kaleidoscopic explorations of independent cinema have become the most important chronicle of avant-garde and experimental film in the United States. In this collection of thematically related personal essays and conversations with filmmakers, he takes us on a fascinating journey into many under-explored territories of cinema. MacDonald illuminates topics including race and avant-garde film, the political implications of the nature film, the inventive single shot films of the late 1960s and early 1970s, why men use pornography and what they are looking at when they do, poetry and the poetic in avant-garde film, the widespread failure of film studies academicians to honor those who keep film exhibition alive, and other topics.Several of the interviews--those with Korean filmmaker Gina Kim, French nature filmmakers Claude Nuridsany and Marie Pérennou (Microcosmos), Canadian media artist Clive Holden, formalist/conceptualist David Gatten, and New York's Film Forum director Karen Cooper--are the first substantial conversations with these filmmakers available in English.

  • Vision Machines: Cinema, Literature and Sexuality in Spain and Cuba, 1983-1993 (Critical Studies in Latin American and Iberian Culture)

    Karton Kapak
    Over the last decade, visibility and sexuality have become a major theme in Spanish and Cuban cinema, literature and art. Vision Machines explores this development in the light of contemporary history and recent theoretical accounts of sight by writers including Paul Virilio, Gianni Vattimo and Teresa de Lauretis.The very visible women of Almodóvar’s cinema are Paul Julian Smith’s first subject. He shows how, in his early Dark Habits, lesbianizes the look, putting women’s pleasure at the centre of the frame, and then examines Almodóvar’s recent film, Kika, where the conflict between cinema and video is played out in the bodies of women: good, bad and ugly. Moving the focus to Cuba, Smith discussed the reception in Europe and North America of Nestor Almendro’s remarkable documentary on gays in Cuba, Improper Conduct, and traces the trial of visibility to which effeminate men were exposed. He compares Amendor’s work with the autobiography of exile novelist Reinaldo Arenas, which revels in graphic sex, and also looks at the first Cuban film with a gay theme, Gutierrez Alea’s Strawberry and Chocolate.Smith returns to Spain to consider the response of artists and intellectuals to the public invisibility of AIDS in a country with one of the highest rates of HIV transmission in the Eurpean Union. Drawing on Anglo-American debates on the representation of AIDS, he concentrates on the one major intervention by Spanish scholars and artists, Love and Rage, and on the only figure in any medium to address AIDS in his aesthetic practice, the conceptual artist and video-maker Pepe Espaliu. He concludes with a fascinating account of Julio Medem’s pathbreaking film from 1993, The Red Squirrel, which has opened up a new approach to two formerly taboo subjects: Basque nationalism and female sexuality.

  • Hollywood Italians: Dagos, Palookas, Romeos, Wise Guys, and Sopranos

In addition, the book reviews the work of such Italian American directors as Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese in a fresh light. In all, Hollywood Italians discusses scores of films with a concentration on their literary and European-cinematic roots. The book is capped by a no-holds-barred examination of The Godfather and its two sequels as well as the international television phenomenon The Sopranos.
