But 'heritage cinema' is all too often discussed from literary (not cinematic) perspectives, and criticism of the films has long been overshadowed by the question of a film's fidelity to the original text. This volume of essays, reviews, and interviews seeks to redress this imbalance, by examining the often antagonistic relationship between literature and film - presenting both sides of the argument about whether heritage cinema's elaborate aesthetics owe more to nostalgia than to historical accuracy. In her challenging introduction to the volume, Ginette Vincendeau sketches the terms of the debate, arguing that the genre is an important, but often critically neglected, form of popular cinema. Film/Literature/Heritage, the latest in a series of 'Sight and Sound Readers', embraces a wide range of literary adaptation, from William Shakespeare to William Burroughs, covering films from Orlando to LA Confidential, and directors from Martin Scorcese to Peter Greenaway." - BOOK BLURB ISBN: 0851708420; 0851708412(pbk.) : ¦13.99 LON: 22285912 More info

Even after achieving commercial success and critical acclaim with such films as Interview with the Vampire and The Butcher Boy, Jordan remains a curiously elusive figure in the era of the celebrity filmmaker. Maria Pramaggiore addresses this conundrum by examining Jordan's distinctive style across a surprisingly broad range of genres and production contexts, including horror and gangster films, Irish-themed movies, and Hollywood remakes. Despite the striking diversity of Jordan's films, the director consistently returns to gothic themes of loss, violence, and madness. In her sophisticated examination of Mona Lisa, Michael Collins, and The Good Thief, Pramaggiore shows how Jordan presents these dark narratives with a uniquely Irish and postmodern sense of irony. This illuminating analysis of one of the cinema's most important artists will be of keen interest to movie enthusiasts as well as students and scholars of contemporary film" -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes filmography: p. -177; Includes bibliographical references (p. -195) and index ISBN: 9780252075308 Contents: Neil Jordan's Postmodern Gothic -- Monster Movies: The Company of Wolves and Interview with the Vampire -- Ghosts of the Nation: High Spirits and Michael Collins -- Gothic Cycles: Popular Music in Mona Lisa, Angel, and The Crying Game -- Dream Lovers, Dream Mothers: The Miracle, The Butcher Boy, In Dreams, and Breakfast on Pluto -- Doubles, Remakes, and Repetition: We're No Angels, The End of the Affair, "Not I," and The Good Thief -- Interview with Neil Jordan.
