Why do so many of the films described as adaptations seem to derive from canonical literature rather than from other sources? How do the different media affect the ways stories are told? Film Adaptation offers fresh approaches to the art, theory, and cultural politics of movie adaptations, even challenging what is meant by the term "adaptation" itself. Contributors examine the process of adaptation in both theory and practice, discussing a wide variety of films. James Naremore's introduction provides an accessible historical overview of the field and reveals the importance of adaptation study to the many different academic disciplines now attracted to the analysis of film as commodity, document, and cultural artifact." -- BOOK BLURB

On Kubrick / Naremore, James
London: British Film Institute, 2007.
Call No: 81 KUB NAR Author: Naremore, James Place: London Publisher: British Film Institute PubDate: 2007 PhysDes: 299 p. : ill. ; 24cm Subject: KUBRICK, STANLEY; A.I: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (US, Steven Spielberg, 2001); FEAR AND DESIRE (US, Stanley Kubrick, 1953) Summary: On Kubrick is a critical study of Stanley Kubrick's career, beginning with his earliest feature, "Fear and Desire" (1953), and ending with his posthumous production of "A.I., Artificial Intelligence" (2001). Organized in six parts ("The Taste Machine," "Young Kubrick," "Kubrick, Harris, Douglas," "Stanley Kubrick Presents," "Late Kubrick," and "Epilogue"), it offers provocative analysis of each of Kubrick's films together with new information about their production histories and cultural contexts. Its ultimate aim is to provide a concise yet thorough discussion that will be useful as both an academic text and a trade publication. The book argues that in several respects Kubrick was one of the cinema's last modernists: his taste and sensibility were shaped by the artistic culture of New York in the 1950s; he became a celebrated auteur who forged a distinctive style; he used art-cinema conventions in commercial productions; he challenged censorship regulations; and throughout his career he was preoccupied with one of the central themes of modernist art - the conflict between rationality and its ever-present shadow, the unconscious. War and science are often the subjects of his films, and his work has a hyper-masculine quality; yet no director has more relentlessly emphasized the absurdity of combat, the failure of scientific reasoning, and the fascistic impulses in masculine sexuality. The book also argues that while Kubrick was a voracious intellectual and a life-long autodidact, the fascination of his work has less to do with the ideas it espouses than with the emotions it evokes. Often described as "cool" or "cold," Kubrick is best understood as a skillful practitioner of what might be called the aesthetics of the grotesque; he employs extreme forms of caricature and black comedy to create disgusting, frightening, yet also laughable images of the human body. No less than Diane Arbus (who was his contemporary), he makes his viewers uneasy, unsure how to react either emotionally or politically. -- publisher's blurb ISBN: 9781844571420 Contents: -- preface and acknowledgments -- part one: prologue -- 1: the last modernist -- 2: silence, exile and cunning -- 3: grotesque aesthetics -- part two: early Kubrick -- 1: no other country but the mind -- 2: dream city -- part three: Kubrick, Harris, Douglas -- 1: the criminal and the artist -- 2: ant hill -- 3: Dolores, lady of pain -- part four: Stanley Kubrick Presents -- 1: wargasm -- 2: beyond the stars -- 3: a professional piece of Sinny -- 4: duelist -- 5: horrorshow -- Part five: late Kubrick -- 1: warriors -- 2: lovers -- part six: epilogue -- 1: afterthoughts -- 2: love and death in A.I.
