Or avocados? During the heady years of tax incentives and 10BA it didn't much matter to Australian investors where they put their surplus funds. For the Australian film industry, booming after the creative revival of the 1970s, the next decade became one of confusion and controversy. In THE AVOCADO PLANTATION, David Stratton gives us a comprehensive look at the making of 270 film features between 1980 and 1990. He discusses the big name attractions - GALLIPOLI, THE MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER, MAD MAX 2, CROCODILE DUNDEE, MAN OF FLOWERS, SWEETIE - and a host of lesser known films. Adventure films, horror films, love stories, comedies, they're all here: the smash hits, the turkets and the quality movies appreciated by discerning audiences. Stratton tells the behind-the-scenes stories of how the films were made - or in some casxes, un-made. He talks with directors such as Peter Weir, George Miller and Paul Cox, as well as producers, writers, actors, and crew members. Their reflections and revelations form a major part of THE AVOCADO PLANTATION." [Taken from book jacket] Notes: Includes index ISBN: 0732902509 LON: 7520974 Donation: Simon Wincer ID2: 255 More info

Shumway examines the defining characteristic of Sayle's cinema: its realism. Positing the filmmaker as a critical realist, Shumway explores Sayle's attention to narrative in critically acclaimed and popular films such as Matewan, Eight Men Out, Passion Fish and Lone Star. The study also details the conditions under which Sayle's films have been produced, distributed, and exhibited, affecting the way in which these films have been understood and appreciated. In the process, Shumway presents Sayles as a teacher who tells historically accurate stories that invite audiences to consider the human world they all inhabit." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references, filmography and index ISBN: 9780252078569 Contents: -- acknowledgments -- John Sayles: critical realist -- John Sayles: independent -- John Sayles: realist -- Beginnings: return of the Secaucus seven -- Establishing a career -- Lianna and Baby it's you -- The brother from another planet and Springsteen videos -- Matewan -- Eight Men out -- Place and melodrama: city of hope and passion fish -- Stories -- Lone star -- Men with guns -- Limbo -- Millennial ZSayles -- Casa de los babys -- Silver city -- Honeydripper -- interviews with John Sayles -- filmography -- bibliography -- index -- More info
