Lasting Screen Stars - Images that Fade and Personas that Endure (Paperback, 1st ed. 2016): Lucy Bolton, Julie Lobalzo Wright Lasting Screen Stars - Images that Fade and Personas that Endure (Paperback, 1st ed. 2016)
Lucy Bolton, Julie Lobalzo Wright
R638 R560 Discovery Miles 5 600 Save R78 (12%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Lasting Stars examines the issue of stardom and longevity and investigates the many reasons for the persistence or disappearance of different star personas. Through a selection of chapters that look at issues such as inappropriate ageing, national identity and physical characteristics, this book will be the first volume to consider in depth and breadth the factors that affect the longevity of film stardom. The range of stars includes popular stars who are approached from fresh angles (Brando, Loren), less popular stars whose lower-profiles than their peers may be surprising (Taylor, Shearer) and stars whose national identity is integral to their perception as they age (Riva, Bachchan, Pavor). There are stars from the beginning of Hollywood (Valentino, Reid) to the present day (Jolie), and those who made uneasy transitions between countries (Mason), ages (Ringwald) and industrial eras (Keaton). The book examines the range of factors that affect how star images endure, including appropriate and inappropriate ageing (Griffith), race (Ice Cube) and digital technologies (Lee).

Film and Female Consciousness - Irigaray, Cinema and Thinking Women (Hardcover, New): Lucy Bolton Film and Female Consciousness - Irigaray, Cinema and Thinking Women (Hardcover, New)
Lucy Bolton
R2,286 Discovery Miles 22 860 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Film and Female Consciousness analyses three contemporary films that offer complex and original representations of women's thoughtfulness and individuality: In the Cut (2003), Lost in Translation (2003) and Morvern Callar (2002). Lucy Bolton compares these recent works with well-known and influential films that offer more familiar treatments of female subjectivity: Klute (1971), The Seven Year Itch (1955) and Marnie (1964). Considering each of the older, celebrated films alongside the recent, unconventional works illustrates how contemporary filmmaking techniques and critical practices can work together to create provocative depictions of on-screen female consciousness. Bolton's approach demonstrates how the encounter between the philosophy of Luce Irigaray and cinema can yield a fuller understanding of the fundamental relationship between film and philosophy. Furthermore, the book explores the implications of this approach for filmmakers and spectators, and suggests Irigarayan models of authorship and spectatorship that reinvigorate the notion of women's cinema.

Tough Ain't Enough - New Perspectives on the Films of Clint Eastwood (Paperback): Lester D. Friedman, David Desser Tough Ain't Enough - New Perspectives on the Films of Clint Eastwood (Paperback)

Throughout his lengthy career as both an actor and a director, Clint Eastwood has appeared in virtually every major film genre and, at this point in his career, has emerged as one of America's most popular, recognizable, and respected filmmakers. He also remains a controversial figure in the political landscape, often characterized as the most prominent conservative voice in mostly liberal Hollywood. At Eastwood's late age, his critical success as actor and director, his combative willingness to confront serious cultural issues in his films, and his undeniable talent behind the camera all call for a new and comprehensive study that considers and contextualizes his multiple roles, both on and off screen. Tough Ain't Enough offers readers a series of original essays by prominent cinema scholars that explore the actor-director's extensive career. The result is a far-reaching and nuanced portrait of one of America's most prolific and thoughtful filmmakers.

Italy On Screen - National Identity and Italian Imaginary (Paperback, New edition): Lucy Bolton, Christina Siggers Manson Italy On Screen - National Identity and Italian Imaginary (Paperback, New edition)
Lucy Bolton, Christina Siggers Manson
R1,061 R953 Discovery Miles 9 530 Save R108 (10%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This collection of articles arises out of the international conference `Italy on Screen', held at the Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies, London, in February 2007. This volume assembles work on different aspects of the relationships between Italy and film, and confirms the variety of approaches which contemporary students are able to bring to this field. These essays display the reach of Italian cinema into fresh areas of film studies, as well as gender studies, theology, cultural studies and comparative literature. Through these explorations, new perspectives emerge on the historical and contemporary relationships between Italy and cinema, including rural landscapes and indigenous people, but also Catholicism and perspectives of non-Italians. This volume thus constitutes a platform for scholars and devotees of Italian cinema to share their original and non-standard work, incorporating some classic texts and filmmakers but also branching out to offer thought-provoking new perspectives.

Framed! - Essays in French Studies (Paperback): Lucy Bolton, Gerri Kimber, Ann Lewis, Michael Seabrook Framed! - Essays in French Studies (Paperback)

R1,163 R1,068 Discovery Miles 10 680 Save R95 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Broaching the notion of the 'frame' from a variety of analytic perspectives, and employing a range of approaches, this collection of articles engages with contemporary debates on text and image relations, literary reception and translation, narratology and cinematographic technique. The various contributions to this collection provide new readings in their respective fields, and share a common concern with exploring the productive and problematic notion of the 'frame' and of 'framing' in a wide variety of cultural media in French Studies. This interdisciplinary analysis of literary and theoretical texts, visual art and film allows for fruitful connections to be made at the level of analysis of themes and of methodology. It thus provides material that is of interest both to specialists in these fields, and also to those seeking a more general introduction to each area. This collection of articles is selected from the proceedings of the 'Framed! in French Studies' workshop, held at the Institut Francais in London in February 2006.

Contemporary Cinema and the Philosophy of Iris Murdoch (Hardcover): Lucy Bolton Contemporary Cinema and the Philosophy of Iris Murdoch (Hardcover)
Lucy Bolton
R1,669 R1,489 Discovery Miles 14 890 Save R180 (11%) Special order

Iris Murdoch was not only one of post-war Britain's most celebrated and prolific novelists - she was also an influential philosopher, whose work was concerned with the question of the good and how we can see our moral worlds more clearly. Murdoch believed that paying attention to art is a way for us to become less self-centred, and this book argues that cinema is the perfect form of art to enable us to do this. Bringing together Murdoch's moral philosophy and contemporary cinema to build a dialogue about vision, ethics and love, author Lucy Bolton encourages us to view cinema as a way of studying other worlds and moral journeys, and to reflect upon their ethical significance in the world of the film and in our daily lives.
