Mankiewicz, 1950); GREAT GATSBY, THE (US/AT, Baz Luhrmann, 2013); MUSIC IN FILMS; WOLF HALL [TV] (UK, 2015) Summary: This book explores the intersection between adaptation studies and what James F. English has called the “economy of prestige,” which includes formal prize culture as well as less tangible expressions such as canon formation, fandom, authorship, and performance. The chapters explore how prestige can affect many facets of the adaptation process, including selection, approach, and reception. The first section of this volume deals directly with cycles of influence involving prizes such as the Pulitzer, the Man Booker, and other major awards. The second section focuses on the juncture where adaptation, the canon, and awards culture meet, while the third considers alternative modes of locating and expressing prestige through adapted and adaptive intertexts. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of adaptation, cultural sociology, film, and literature. -- [taken from publishers site] Notes: Includes index ISBN: 9783319528533 Contents: 1.Adaptation and Systems of Cultural Value / Eric Sandberg -- 2.The Pulitzers Go to Hollywood / Thomas Leitch -- 3.Beware of Imitations: All about Eve (1950) / Laurence Raw -- 4.Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall(s) and the Circulation of Cultural Prestige / Eric Sandberg -- 5.Adapting Queerness, Queering Adaptation: Fun Home on Broadway / Joanna Mansbridge -- 6.Oliver's Auteurs: The Cases of Lean and Polanski / Jeffrey E.

Is it still an 'other' industry in a world dominated by American Cinemas? Bollywood and Its Other(s) aims to compensate for the lack of scholarly literature on Bollywood studies by opening up hitherto unexplored sites or sites that are in formation. One of the most comprehensive volumes on Bollywood so far, it focuses on the aesthetic-philosophical questions of the other, Indian diaspora's negotiations with national identity, alternative reading strategies/research methods, marginal genres (sci-fi, horror), marginal characters (flaneuse, vamps), marginal gender (non-normative sexualities), marginal cinema (Hindi avant-garde), marginal language (Hinglish), and marginal regions (the Kashmir valley).

But is truth or reality readily available, easily acquired, or undisputed? Or do documentaries convey illusions of reality? What aesthetic means are used to build these illusions?
Crafting truth illuminates the way these films tell their stories; how they use the camera, editing, sound, and performance; what rhetorical devices they employ; and what the theoretical, practical, and ethical implications of those choices are. Complex documentary concepts are presented through easily accessible language, images, and a discussion of a wide range of films and videos to encourage new ways of thinking about and seeing nonfiction cinema.

Source: US/UK Place: London ; Oakville Publisher: Equinox PubDate: 2010 PhysDes: x, 258 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Series: Genre, music and sound Subject: ANIMATION; ANIMATORS; MUSIC AND THE CINEMA; MUSIC IN FILMS; MUSIC, FILM; SOUND; SOUND TRACKS Summary: "Animation films are produced around the world and attract sizeable audiences and much critical acclaim. No longer marginalized in genres such as children's or propoganda films, they are increasingly the subject of academic study. At the same time, attention has turned to the music and sound, which contribute to both the emotional impact and the narrative drive, as well as the marketing appeal, of such films. This ground-breaking volume bridges these two fields and also positions animation-film sound and music in the context of the screen and music industries. Animation experts like Paul Wells and Daniel Goldmark and film-music authorities including Philip Hayward, Ian Inglis and Janet Halfyard provide international perspectives on the history and aesthetics of music and sound in animation film.
Drawn to Sound focuses on feature-length, widely distributed films released in the period since World War II, from producers in the USA,UK, Japan and France - from Animal Farm (1954) to Happy Feet (2006), Yellow Submarine (1968) to Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005), Spirited Away (2001) and Les Triplettes de Belleville (2003). It spotlights important studios, including Disney, Dreamworks, Aardman Animation and studio Ghibli, and composers, both those who collaborate personally with directors and those whose msuic is used to provide period or mood atmospheres.

Earogenous zones : sound, sexuality and cinema / edited by Bruce Johnson

This collection exemplifies a variety of approaches to the sonic representation of sexuality in cinema. It draws on a range of sexual scenarios from pornography to sci-fi to art-house and includes cinema from various cultures and countries. Among the topics addressed are how the deployment of sound is implicated in gender politics in the representation of sexuality and how sounds are able to radically colour and even override the visual and lexical content of a film. --
Through sonicity the film-maker can challenge the ideologies at play underneath surface stereotypes, and introduce emotional overtones which meliorate the alienation generally associated with porn. Sound and music can establish a historical period as well as spatially localize sexuality within a framework that problematizes the distinctions between porn and erotica. They can introduce into the ahistorical sextopia of porn the cultural specificity of the notion of 'pornography' and indeed can shift a film in and out of that category, even desexualizing the naked human body. --

The bestselling author David Bret traces the development of Presley's film career and recounts the on-set cat fights with co-stars and studio personnel. He unearths the truth about the powerful hold exercised over Elvis by 'Colonel' Tom Parker, which revolved around Parker preventing a leak about Presley's relationship with another man from going public and then using this knowledge as a persistant threat to ensure his protege's loyalty.
Bret explores and hotly disputes the controversial allegations, levelled by Presley's step-family, that he had sex with his mother, raped his wife, held debauched, drug fuelled parties with groupies and eventually committed suicide. Above all, the author praises the nature and talent of the man who was - and still is - the supreme authority on rock'n'roll and romance.

Her films, including 'Chocolat', 'Beau travail' and 'White Material' explore connections between national experience and individual circumstance, visualising the complications of such dualities. Following a foreword by Wim Wenders, international contributors explore the themes she addresses in her films, such as kinship and landscape, neo-colonialism and New French Extremity. Original interviews with an editor, actor and two composers familiar with Denis's working style and with Denis herself, also reveal fresh facets of this intrepid filmmaker." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes list of illustrations, bibliographic references and index ISBN: 9781848859548 Contents: --List of illustrations -- Notes on contributors -- Preface -- Foreword: 'Klarchen'

Lessons of noise and silence : avant-garde cinema and experimental music in Australia
Studies in Australasian cinema (2007) vol.1 iss.2 p.223-234 Author: Martin, Adrian PhysDes: Article Subject: EXPERIMENTAL FILMS. AUSTRALIA; SOUND; MUSIC IN FILMS. AUSTRALIA; AVANT-GARDE FILMS. AUSTRALIA Summary: This article is an historical survey of Australian experimental cinema from the 1960s to the present day organized around the use of music and sound. Six aesthetic categories are distinguished: film as backdrop to live music; live music as backdrop to film; pre-recorded music as a ‘bed’ for images; images as a bed for pre-recorded music; disjunction between image and sound; image–sound fusion. The debate over the effects of musical rhythm in cinema is discussed.--ABSTRACT More info

The bulk of the text focuses on the work of directors Wes Anderson, Ingmar Bergman, the Coen brothers, Peter Greenaway, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Quentin Tarantino, Andrey Tarkovsky and Gus Van Sant. Significantly, the anthology includes a discussion of films administratively controlled by such famously sound-conscious producers as David O. Selznick and Val Lewton. Written by the leading film music scholars from Europe, North America, and Australia, Music, Sound and Filmmakers: Sonic Style in Cinema will complement other volumes in Film Music Coursework, or stand on its own among a body of research.

Unlike previous collected volumes about pop music in film, where a generalised approach has been adopted, it offers instead a close examination of these two most pervasive and significant mediums in contemporary culture.
"The collection introspects, assembling the pop song into various guises and documenting how individuals dissemble the multiple roles that the pop song plays in all and one audio-visual moment. The song as: ghost, role-play, memory trigger, narrator, marketing device, translator, alienator, membership rite, etc." (Taken from the back cover) Notes: Includes index ISBN: 184150078X More info

AUSTRALIA Summary: Over the last decade popular cinema has employed a variety of forms of music. These include traditional composed screen music, pre-recorded music tracks, mixes of music and sound effects and various combinations of these. In response to this, film music scholars have developed new ways of understanding and analysing the role of film music in relation to genre, narrative and creative roles and inter-relations in film music scoring. 'Reel Tracks' provides a series of insightful analyses of recent mainstream Australian cinema. Following the editor's careful exploration of film music's relation to national cinema culture and identity, individual chapters offer stimulating and diverse accounts of music in films such as Rabbit-Proof Fence (2002), Lantana (2001), Chopper (2000) and Paradise Road (1997). The chapters in this volume also address broader themes such as the musical representation of sexuality in cinema and music's representation of regions, localities and ethnicity. Reel Tracks is an important contribution to both Australian film studies and the international understanding of the role of music in contemporary western cinema. This volume is targeted to both cinema studies readers and film music students, teachers and aficionados.

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.

By integrating the music of Beethoven, Mahler, and others into their films, directors such as Fassbinder, Kluge, and Syderberg consciously called attention to its cultural significance. Through this music their films could reference and, in some cases, explore an embedded cultural tradition that included German nationalism and the rise of Nazism, especially during a period when German films were gaining international attention for the first time since the 1920s. Classical music conditioned the responses of German audiences in the 1970s and 1980s and was, in turn, reinterpreted in new cinematic contexts. In this pioneering volume, Hillman enriches our understanding of the powerful effects of music in cinema and the aesthetic and dramatic concerns of postwar German filmmakers."
