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
The philosophy of Ang Lee / edited by Robert Arp, Adam Barkman, and James McRae.
Lexington: Kentucky: University Press of Kentucky, 2013.
Call No: 81LEE PHI Author: Arp, Robert; Barkman, Adam; McRae, James Source: US Place: Lexington: Kentucky Publisher: University Press of Kentucky PubDate: 2013 PhysDes: 303 pages ; 24 cm Subject: PHILOSOPHY AND THE CINEMA; LEE, ANG; CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON (HK, Ang Lee, 2000); LUST, CAUTION (US/CC/TZ/HK, Ang Lee, 2007); SE, JEI (US/CC/TZ/HK, Ang Lee, 2007); SENSE AND SENSIBILITY (US, Ang Lee, 1995); TAKING WOODSTOCK (US, Ang Lee, 2009); ICE STORM (US, Ang Lee, 1997); RIDE WITH THE DEVIL (US, Ang Lee, 1999); BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (US, Ang Lee, 2005) Summary: The Philosophy of Ang Lee draws from both Eastern and Western philosophical traditions to examine the director’s works. 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.
