(US/GW, Ted Kotcheff, 1978); WAKE IN FRIGHT (AT, Ted Kotcheff, 1971) Summary: With six decades in show business, legendary director Ted Kotcheff looks back on his life
Born to immigrant parents and raised in the slums of Toronto during the Depression, Ted Kotcheff learned storytelling on the streets before taking a stagehand job at CBC Television. Discovering his skills with actors and production, Kotcheff went on to direct some of the greatest films of the freewheeling 1970s, including The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, Wake in Fright, and North Dallas Forty. After directing the 1980s blockbusters First Blood and Weekend at Bernie’s, Kotcheff helped produce the groundbreaking TV show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. During his career, he was declared a Communist by the U.S. government, banned from the Royal Albert Hall in London, and coped with assassination threats on one of his lead actors.
With his seminal films enjoying a critical renaissance, including praise from Martin Scorsese and Nick Cave, Kotcheff now turns the lens on himself. Witty and fearless, Director’s Cut is not just a memoir, but also a close-up on life and craft, with stories of his long friendship with Mordecai Richler and working with stars like Sylvester Stallone, James Mason, Gregory Peck, Ingrid Bergman, Gene Hackman, Jane Fonda, and Richard Dreyfuss, as well as advice on how to survive the slings and arrows of Hollywood. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9781770413610 More info

The killing / John Alberti
Detyroit, Mich: Wayne State University Press, 2017.
Call No: 79 KIL ALB Author: Alberti, John Edition: 2017 Place: Detyroit, Mich Publisher: Wayne State University Press PubDate: 2017 PhysDes: 112 p. ; illus. ; 18 cm Series: TV Milestones Subject: KILLING, THE [TV] (US, 2011-2014); FORBYDELSEN [KILLING, THE] [TV] (DK, 2007-2012) Notes: Although it lasted only four seasons and just forty-four episodes, The Killing attracted considerable critical notice and sparked an equally lively debate about its distinctive style and innovative approach to the television staple of the police procedural. A product of the turn toward revisionist "quality" television in the post-broadcast era, The Killing also stands as a pioneering example of the changing gender dynamics of early twenty-first-century television. Author John Alberti looks at how the show’s focus shifts the police procedural away from the idea that solving the mystery of whodunit means resolving the crime, and toward dealing with the ongoing psychological aftermath of crime and violence on social and family relationships. This attention to what creator and producer Veena Sud describes as the "real cost" of murder defines The Killing as a milestone feminist revision of the crime thriller and helps explain why it has provoked such strong critical reactions and fan loyalty.
Alberti examines the history of women detectives in the television police procedural, paying particular attention to how the cultural formation of the traditionally male noir detective has shaped that history. Through a careful comparison with the Danish original, Forbrydelsen, and a season-by-season overview of the series, Alberti argues that The Killing rewrites the masculine lone wolf detective—a self-styled social outsider who sees the entanglements of relationships as threats to his personal autonomy—of the classic noir. Instead, lead detective Sarah Linden, while wary of the complications of personal and social attachments, still recognizes their psychological and ethical inescapability and necessity. In the final chapter, the author looks at how the show’s move to ever-expanding niche markets and multi-viewing options, along with an increase in feminist reconstructions of various television genres, makes The Killing a perfect example of cult television that lends itself to binge-watching in the digital era. Television studies scholars and fans of police procedurals should own this insightful volume. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9780814342121 More info

KILLING, THE : (US, Stanley Kubrik, 1956)
Speaking truths with film : evidence, ethics, politics in documentary / Bill Nichols
Oakland: California University of California Press, 2016.
Call No: 761 NIC Author: Nichols, Bill Source: US Place: Oakland Publisher: California University of California Press PubDate: 2016 PhysDes: 281 p. ; ill. ; 23 cm Subject: DOCUMENTARIES; DOCUMENTARY FILMS; AUDIENCES; MUSIC IN FILMS; VOICES; SOCIAL ISSUES IN FILMS; ETHICS AND THE CINEMA; ETHICS IN FILMS; POLITICS AND THE CINEMA; POLITICS IN FILMS; LAND WITHOUT BREAD (SP, Luis Bunuel, 1933); RESTREPO (US, Tim Hetherington/Sebastian Junger, 2010); THIN BLUE LINE, THE (US, Errol Morris, 1988); ACT OF KILLING, THE (DK/NO/UK, Joshua Oppenheimer, (2012); STEVE JOBS: THE MAN IN THE MACHINE (US, Alex Gibney, 2015) Summary: "What issues, of both form and content, shape the documentary film? What role does visual evidence play in relation to a documentary's arguments about the world in which we live? Can a documentary be believed, and why or why not? How do documentaries abide by or subvert ethical expectations? Are mockumentaries a form of subversion? In what ways can the documentary be an aesthetic experience and at the same time have political or social impact? And how can such impacts be empirically measured? Pioneering film scholar Bill Nichols investigates the ways in which documentaries strive for accuracy and truthfulness, but simultaneously fabricate a form that shapes reality. Such films may rely on re-enactment to re-create the past, storytelling to provide satisfying narratives, and rhetorical figures such as metaphor and expressive forms such as irony to make a point. In many ways documentaries are a fiction unlike any other. With clarity and passion, Nichols offers close readings of several provocative documentaries including Land without Bread, Restrepo, The Thin Blue Line, The Act of Killing, and Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine as part of an authoritative examination of the layered approaches and delicate ethical balance demanded of documentary filmmakers"--Provided by publisher.

Stanley Kubrick / Deutsches Filmmuseum
Call No: 175 KUB PubDate: 2004 Subject: KUBRICK, STANLEY; PHOTOGRAPHY AND THE CINEMA; KILLING, THE (US, Stanley Kubrik, 1956); LOLITA (US, Stanley Kubrick, 1962); CLOCKWORK ORANGE, A (UK, Stanley Kubrick, 1971); BARRY LYNDON (UK, Stanley Kubrick, 1975); SHINING, THE (UK, Stanley Kubrick, 1980); FULL METAL JACKET (UK, Stanley Kubrick, 1987); EYES WIDE SHUT (US/UK, Stanley Kubrick, 1999) Summary: Exhibition catalogue for the Deutsches Filmmuseum’s exhibition dedicated to the late director and currently displayed at ACMI as “Stanley Kubrick: Inside the Mind of a Visionary Filmmaker”. “The whole idea seemed strange at first. Exhibiting Stanley’s equipment, his plans, notes, photos? It did not feel right and would have been unthinkable during his lifetime, yet on careful reflection and discussion with Christiane Kubrick it became quite clear that while his privacy had to be guarded, his professional output was for all to be seen to celebrate the life of a great filmmaker. The efforts, the hard work, the inventiveness and wealth of ideas are so interesting, whereas the mystery of artistic talent will always remain under seal. Stanley Kubrick’s films will remain a valid reflection of his time and culture for future generations.” [“Foreword”, Jan Harlan]. ISBN: 3887990692 More info

Often requiring time and effort to fully grasp it and seeming rather old-fashioned, it can be difficult to approach the subject with enthusiasm and appreciate its relevance to modern day.
Understanding Film Theory aims to disassociate theory from these connotations and bring a fresh, contemporary and accessible approach to the discipline. Now comprehensively updated in a second edition, the book’s sixteen chapters - including a new chapter on Adaptations - continue to provide an insight into the main areas of debate. Taking the application of theory as its central theme, the text incorporates a number of innovative features: ‘Reflect and Respond’ sections encourage readers to engage critically with theoretical concepts, while seminal texts are concisely summarised without oversimplifying key points.
Throughout the book the authors illustrate why theory is important and demonstrate how it can be applied in a meaningful way, with relevant case studies drawn from both classic and contemporary cinema including: Once Upon a Time in the West (1968), Run Lola Run (1998), The Hunger Games (2012), Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013) and The Lego Movie (2014). Additional case studies address key genres (the British Gangster film and the musical), film movements (Dogme 95), individual actors (Ryan Gosling, Judi Dench and Amitabh Bachchan) and directors (Alfred Hitchcock and Guillermo del Toro).
Understanding Film Theory is an approachable and extensive introduction to film theory. It is the ideal entry point for any student studying film, using clear definitions and explaining complex ideas succinctly.
