How can we find ideas for films and stories? Probably you’ve already read some books about scriptwriting. And you’ve found out, that the topic of finding ideas is generally not treated very well. One or two pages at best and the recommendations are most of the time the same. Furthermore all these strategies are mostly seen against the backdrop of traditional (Hollywood like) scriptwriting i.e. the dramatic line. And even more: Film is always seen as entertainment, not as an art, as a subjective medium!<br />This book is about how to find ideas. Mainly for films, but it also can be used for storytelling in general and other creative work. It is about learning how to train this muscle, which we call imagination, on a daily basis, as Jean-Claude Carriére once put it.<br />Actually this book is a practical guide with a lot of exercises and some films I would like you to watch. Take your time, do the exercises, watch as many of the films mentioned as possible. The latter will broaden your horizon and show you, that there are as many possibilities to tell a story than stars in the sky. Without all of them, the exercises and the films, this course makes no sense! The goal is to give your ideas a chance to live and to survive beyond all the templates, rules and formulas used in all the “traditional“ books about scriptwriting.

Joseph McBride has been writing about films for fifty years. His career as a critic and historian has included acclaimed biographies of Frank Capra, Steven Spielberg, and John Ford, and three books about Orson Welles. McBride’s extensive journalistic work, the best of which is collected in "Two Cheers for Hollywood: Joseph McBride on Movies," includes interviews with directors; profiles of screenwriters; features on stars and craftspeople; accounts of visiting sets; and essays on some of his favorite films. Among the filmmakers he covers in "Two Cheers for Hollywood" are Billy Wilder, Alfred Hitchcock, George Cukor, John Huston, George Stevens, François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Richard Lester, Joe Dante, Hal Ashby, Elia Kazan, Robert Riskin, Abraham Polonsky, Michael Wilson, Marguerite Roberts, John Wayne, James Stewart, Peter O’Toole, and Katharine Hepburn. <br /><br />"Two Cheers for Hollywood" is a rich, insightful, often amusing chronicle of McBride’s decades of covering the American film industry and observing its decline from the challenging films of the 1960s to the juvenilia of today. This provocative collection brings together sixty-four pieces with commentaries on them, including a new monograph on the Coen Bros. and several other essays written for this book. "Two Cheers for Hollywood" demonstrates why McBride has helped set the standard for the field of film scholarship. As the late novelist Thomas Flanagan wrote in The New York Review of Books, McBride “deploys his wide knowledge of American social and film history with tact, wit, and imagination.” McBride is a professor in the School of Cinema at San Francisco State University.<br />

"Alex Shaw is consistently insightful, amusing, and able to cut right to the heart of the things he's passionate about.<br />His reviews always offer valuable perspectives delivered with wit, clarity and an almost lyrical quality. An invaluable look at a medium all too often given at best surface level dissection."<br /><br />- Laura Dale (Let's Play Video Games)<br /><br />The project of watching one movie every single day of the year and writing something interesting about them, no matter how good or bad they are, continues. Find out all about movies you've never seen or even heard of, and maybe get a little more out of those you know already. The next 100 mini-essays, including analyses of Beauty and the Beast, Alien, 300, The Lost World, Ninja 2: Shadow of a Tear, Arthur (both versions), Drop Dead Gorgeous, Dead Rising, Blank Check, the new Power Rangers, The Faculty, The Conjuring 2, Son of the Mask, The Avengers (no, the other one), all three Naked Guns, Spider-Man: Homecoming and a whole boatload of Universal Monsters including pretty much all the Mummies.<br /><br />Along the way, Alex Shaw takes several troubling movies and completely re-edits them, fixing issues and uncovering strengths that were otherwise eclipsed. These include Bad Boys II, Alien vs Predator Requiem, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Spider-Man 3, and The Wolverine.<br /><br />Even the very worst movies are rarely a complete waste of our time. You can nearly always find something good in them, even if that just means just writing a drily hilarious think-piece. Alex can be found hosting the weekly School of Movies podcast and writing the New Century Multiverse.

<p>This book investigates the formations of masculinity in Hungarian cinema after the fall of communism and explores some of the cultural phenomena of the years following the 1989 regime change. The films explored offer a unique perspective encompassing two entirely different worlds: state socialism and neoliberal capitalism. The films suggest that Eastern Europe is somehow different than its western counterpart and that its subjects are marked by what they went through before and after 1989. These films are all remembering, interpreting, picturing, marketing and trying to come to terms with this difference—with the memory and effects of state-socialism.  In looking closely at the films’ male figures, one may not only get a glimpse of the dramatic changes Eastern European societies went through after the fall of communism but also see the brave new world of global neoliberal capitalism through the eyes of the Eastern European newcomers.</p>

Customer Reviews
Gay pornography, online and onscreen, is a controversial and significantly under-researched area of cultural production. In the first book of its kind, Gay Pornography: Representations of Sexuality and Masculinity explores the iconography, themes and ideals that the genre presents. Indeed, John Mercer argues that gay pornography cannot be regarded as one-dimensional, but that it offers its audience a vision of plural masculinities that are more nuanced and ambiguous than they might seem. Mercer examines how the internet has generated an exponential growth in the sheer volume and variety of this material, and facilitated far greater access to it. He uses both professional and amateur examples to explore how gay pornography has become part of a wider cultural context in which modern masculinities have become ‘saturated’ by their constantly evolving status and function in popular culture.
