Ruby Rich designated a brand new genre, the New Queer Cinema (NQC), in her groundbreaking article in the Village Voice in 1992. This movement in film and video was intensely political and aesthetically innovative, made possible by the debut of the camcorder, and driven initially by outrage over the unchecked spread of AIDS. The genre has grown to include an entire generation of queer artists, filmmakers, and activists. As a critic, curator, journalist and scholar, Rich has been inextricably linked to the New Queer Cinema from its inception. This volume brings together the best of her writing on the NQC and features her new thoughts on the topic. Following this cinematic movement from its origins in the mid-1980s to the present, Rich presents her insights into NQC pioneers including Derek Jarman and Isaac Julien; investigates such celebrated films as Go Fish, Brokeback Mountain, Itty Bitty Titty Committee, and Milk; explores less-known films and international cinemas; and documents the more recent incarnations of the NQC on screen, on the web, and in art galleries." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographic references and index -- includes filmography ISBN: 9780822354284 ID2: 291 More info

While a film reflects its literary source, it also invites comparisons to our memories of and associations with other versions of the original. For example, a viewer may watch the 2005 big-screen production of Pride and Prejudice and look back on the BBC's 1995 mini-series as well as Jane Austen's novel. Adaptations also rely on the conventions of genre, editing, acting, and sound to engage with our recollections-elements that many movie critics tend to forget when focusing solely on faithfulness to the written word."-BOOK JACKET Notes: includes filmography; includes bibliographical references; includes index ISBN: 9780742538214 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema Contents: -- Acknowledgments -- Introduction -- 1.

The philosophy of Ang Lee / edited by Robert Arp, Adam Barkman, and James McRae.

The first section focuses on Taoist, Confucian, and Buddhist themes in his Chinese-language films, and the second examines Western philosophies in his English-language films; but the volume ultimately explores how Lee negotiates all of these traditions, strategically selecting from each in order to creatively address key issues. With interest in this filmmaker and his work increasing around the release of his 3-D magical adventure The Life of Pi (2012), The Philosophy of Ang Lee serves as a timely investigation of the groundbreaking auteur and the many complex philosophical themes that he explores through the medium of motion pictures.

Screening sex / Linda Williams

Call No: 749 WIL Author: Williams, Linda Source: US Place: Durham Publisher: Duke University Press PubDate: 2008 PhysDes: x, 412 p. : ill. ; 25 cm Series: A John Hope Franklin Center book Subject: SEX AND THE CINEMA; SEX FILMS; SEX IN FILMS; PORNOGRAPHIC FILMS; PORNOGRAPHIC VIDEO; FONDA, JANE; BREILLAT, CATHERINE; FLESH AND THE DEVIL (US, Clarence Brown, 1926); SHORTBUS (US, John Cameron Mitchell, 2006); INTIMACY (FR, Patrice Chereau, 2001); ULTIMO TANGO A PARIGI (IT/FR, Bernardo Bertolucci, 1972); DEEP THROAT (US, Jerry Gerard, 1972); BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (US, Ang Lee, 2005); BLUE VELVET (US, David Lynch, 1986); AI NO CORRIDA (JA/FR, Nagisa Oshima, 1976) Summary: "For many years, kisses were the only sexual acts to be seen in mainstream American movies. Then, in the 1960s and 1970s, American cinema "grew up" in response to the sexual revolution, and movie audiences came to expect more knowledge about what happened between the sheets. In Screening Sex, film scholar Linda Williams investigates how sex acts have been represented on screen for more than a century and, just as important, how we have watched and experienced those representations."
"Combining stories of her own coming of age as a moviegoer with film history, cultural history, and readings of significant films, Williams presents a fascinating history of the on-screen kiss, a look at the shift from adolescent kisses to more grown-up displays of sex, and a comparison of the "tasteful" Hollywood sexual interlude with sexuality as represented in sexploitation, Blaxploitation, and avant-garde films. By understanding screening sex as both revelation and concealment, Williams has written the definitive study of sex at the movies."--BOOK JACKET.
