Dolce vita confidential : Fellini, Loren, Pucci, paparazzi, and the swinging high life of 1950s Rome / Shawn Levy

Call No: 79 DOL LEV Author: Levy, Shawn Source: UK Place: London Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson PubDate: 2018 PhysDes: xxiii, 447 pages, 16 pages of unnumbered plates : Illustrations ; 20 cm Subject: DOLCE VITA, LA (FR/IT, Federico Fellini, 1960); CINECITTA FILM STUDIO; ANTONIONI, MICHELANGELO; DE LAURENTIIS, DINO; DE SICA, VITTORIO; EKBERG, ANITA; FASHION AND THE CINEMA; FELLINI, FEDERICO; LOREN, SOPHIA; MASTROIANNI, MARCELLO; ROSSELLINI, ROBERTO; VISCONTI, LUCHINO Summary: "From the ashes of war, the Eternal City is reborn as the epicentre of film, style, boldfaced libertinism and titillating journalism. It’s the heyday of fashion icons such as Pucci and Brioni, and the height of ‘Hollywood on the Tiber’, when a dizzying array of stars flock to Cinecittà, the huge movie studio on the outskirts of Rome. At the bars on Via Veneto the likes of Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor mix with blue bloods and bohemians, while behind them trail street photographers in pursuit of the most unflattering and dramatic portraits of fame. In a fast-paced, kaleidoscopic narrative, Shawn Levy shows how all roads lead to Federico Fellini’s world-conquering movie La Dolce Vita, starring Marcello Mastroianni and the Swedish bombshell Anita Ekberg. He recreates Rome’s stunning ascent with vivid and compelling tales of its glitterati and artists, down to every last outrageous detail of the city’s magnificent transformation." - taken from publisher's website Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.

Sleeping with strangers : how the movies shaped desire / David Thomson
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2019.
Call No: 747.6(73) THO Author: Thomson, David Edition: First Place: New York Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf PubDate: 2019 PhysDes: 352 pages : illustrated ; 24cm Subject: SEX IN FILMS. USA; HOMOSEXUALITY IN FILMS. USA; MEN AND THE CINEMA; WOMEN AND THE CINEMA; NUDITY IN FILMS; STARS. USA; FASHION AND THE CINEMA; PORNOGRAPHY AND THE CINEMA Summary: In this wholly original work of film criticism, David Thomson, celebrated author of The Biographical Dictionary of Film, probes the many ways in which sexuality has shaped the movies—and the ways in which the movies have shaped sexuality. Exploring the tangled notions of masculinity, femininity, beauty, and sex that characterize our cinematic imagination—and drawing on examples that range from advertising to pornography, Bonnie and Clyde to Call Me by Your Name—Thomson illuminates how film as art, entertainment, and business has historically been a polite cover for a kind of erotic séance. In so doing, he casts the art and the artists we love in a new light, and reveals how film can both expose the fault lines in conventional masculinity and point the way past it, toward a more nuanced understanding of what it means to be a person with desires. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9781101946992 More info
