It displays the rich diversity of film production in the country, and in doing so highlights a number of specific contexts - Maori, documentary and short filmmaking, literary adaptations, the development of the national Film Commission and Archive, marketing and censorship, in addition to explorations into the place of bicultural relations, spirituality, masculinity and disability - that have created a cinema of global significance. Featuring critical accounts of internationally-acclaimed features like The Piano and Once Were Warriors, as well as the growth of the national infrastructure that made such films possible, Contemporary New Zealand Cinema is the most thorough study available of a vibrant filmmaking culture. The book also includes a fully comprehensive filmography detailing all New Zealand feature and television films."--BOOK JACKET Notes: Filmography: p.-253

In her film reviews, she dissects the 'mega' filmmakers of our time - Steven Spielberg, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa, Pedro Almodovar, Ken Russell and David Lynch. Definitely not 'one of the boys', Suzanne Moore's attitude to the good and famous is refreshing and irreverent." -Book blurb.

His rambunctious filmography remains an artistic force on par with Hollywood's greatest comic directors: Chaplin, Lubitsch, Sturges, and Wilder. Like Wilder, Edward's propensity for hilarity is double-helixed with pain, and in films like Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Pink Panther, and even days of Wine and Roses, we can hear him off-screen, laughing in the dark. And yet, despite those enormous successes, he was at one time considered a Hollywood villain. After his marriage to Julie Andrews, Edwards's Darling Lili nearly sunk both of them and brought Paramount Pictures to its knees. Almost overnight, Blake became an industry pariah, which ironically fortified his sense of satire, and allowed him to simultaneously fight the Hollywood tide as he rode it. Employing keen visual analysis, meticulous research, and troves of interviews and production files, Sam Wasson delivers the first complete account of one of the maddest figures Hollywood has ever known." - BOOK JACKET Notes: Includes filmography.; Includes bibliographical references and index.
