Alejandro AmenaBar (Paperback): Barry Jordan Alejandro AmenaBar (Paperback)
Barry Jordan
R522 Discovery Miles 5 220 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Since the release of his first feature in 1996, Alejandro Amenabar has become the 'golden boy' of Spanish filmmaking, a bankable star director whose brand virtually guarantees quality, big audiences and domestic box office success. He has directed three of the highest-grossing movies in Spanish film history and has enjoyed enormous international and critical acclaim, including an Oscar for Best Foreign Film for Mar Adentro/The Sea Inside, 2004. This book is the first full-length study in English of Amenabar's shorts and feature films. It provides detailed analysis of his engagement with popular film genres as the basis for an auteur cinema and incorporates a reappraisal of his auteurism as fundamentally decentred and shared. An essential resource for students, scholars and fans of Amenabar, the book will also appeal to a wider readership, including professionals in the film, media and culture industries as well as those who have a general interest in the best of Spanish, European and world cinema. -- .

"Contemporary Spanish Cinema" offers an essential analysis of the main trends and issues in Spanish film since the death of Franco in 1975.

This volume surveys the current understanding of central nervous control of autonomic function.

An up-to-date account of experimental investigations, this book describes neurophysiological, neuropharmacological and neuroanatomical approaches to the problems involved. In addition to animal work, reference to any relevant studies in humans is also provided. A useful background text for those teaching in the field, this volume should also serve as an important reference work for anyone active in research within the autonomic nervous
