Author: Helena Edwards
View: 3149Helena Edwards has lived a long life of adventure. Sometimes this has involved travel, usually alone and off the beaten track, in Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan and Morocco, for example, dealing with unusual circumstances as the arose. At others the adventure has involved apparently everyday work, among extraordinary people, where the challenge was to the basic notion of what is real and what is not. We find Helena frozen in mid movement during a 'Stop Exercise' at J.G. Bennett's Coombe Springs, dangling from the end of a rope in the Swiss Alps, intuiting what sort of idiot she was in Gurdjieff's flat in Paris, and teaching Gurdjieff's Movements herself. We see her crossing central Turkey in blazing heat on a search, hearing difficult truths from the Indonesian teacher Pak Subuh, accepting the hospitality of a stranger at an oasis, entrained with a Soviet propagandist, and experiencing the Sufi way of teaching at first hand. All This - and Heaven Too? recalls some of the twentieth century's more remarkable teachers. Much has been written about G I Gurdjieff, J G Bennett and Idries Shah. Few met all three, let alone worked closely with two of them. Helena Edwards provides valuable insights into their methods, and into Fourth Way and Sufi work in general. Helena has produced, with modesty, a self-portrait of someone who is herself a remarkable women.

Schon gar nicht, wenn es darum geht, Frank Sinatra zu hören und Martinis zu genießen. Wären da nur nicht diese Aussetzer, kleine Erinnerungslöcher. Für Mimi ist das normal, schließlich wird sie alt, und wer sich zuviel erinnert, verschläft das Heute. Ihre Familie aber findet, es ist höchste Zeit, ein paar der dunklen Flecken in der Familiengeschichte aufzufüllen.

Gender, Narrative, and History
Author: Alison L. McKee
Category: Performing Arts
View: 6667This book explores the relationship among gender, desire, and narrative in 1940s woman’s films which negotiate the terrain between public history and private experience. The woman’s film and other form of cinematic melodrama have often been understood as positioning themselves outside history, and this book challenges and modifies that understanding, contextualizing the films it considers against the backdrop of World War II. In addition, in paying tribute to and departing from earlier feminist formulations about gendered spectatorship in cinema, McKee argues that such models emphasized a masculine-centered gaze at the inadvertent expense of understanding other possible modes of identification and gender expression in classical narrative cinema. She proposes ways of understanding gender and narrative based in part on literary narrative theory and ultimately works toward a notion of an androgynous spectatorship and mode of interpretation in the 1940s woman’s film.
The Life of Bette Davis
Author: Ed Sikov
Publisher: Henry Holt and Company
Category: Biography & Autobiography
View: 7161The legendary Hollywood star blazes a fiery trail in this enthralling portrait of a brilliant actress and the movies her talent elevated to greatness She was magnificent and exasperating in equal measure. Jack Warner called her "an explosive little broad with a sharp left." Humphrey Bogart once remarked, "Unless you're very big she can knock you down." Bette Davis was a force of nature—an idiosyncratic talent who nevertheless defined the words "movie star" for more than half a century and who created an extraordinary body of work filled with unforgettable performances. In Dark Victory, the noted film critic and biographer Ed Sikov paints the most detailed picture ever delivered of this intelligent, opinionated, and unusual woman who was—in the words of a close friend—"one of the major events of the twentieth century." Drawing on new interviews with friends, directors, and admirers, as well as archival research and a fresh look at the films, this stylish, intimate biography reveals Davis's personal as well as professional life in a way that is both revealing and sympathetic. With his wise and well-informed take on the production and accomplishments of such movie milestones as Jezebel, All About Eve, and Now, Voyager, as well as the turbulent life and complicated personality of the actress who made them, Sikov's Dark Victory brings to life the two-time Academy Award–winning actress's unmistakable screen style, and shows the reader how Davis's art was her own dark victory.

View: 1778I have completed this manuscript Just Remember This, or as American Pop Singers 1900-1950+, about music before the 1950s in America. It perhaps offers knowledge and insights not previously found in other musical reference books. I have moreover been working on this book very meticulously over the past twelve-plus years. It started as a bit of fun and gradually became serious as I began to listen along with the vocalists of popular music, of the era before 1950, essentially just before the dawn of rock and roll. If you can call it that! Indeed genre and labeling of American music started here, and then from everywhere. While the old adage of always starting from somewhere could be noted in every century, the 1900s had produced the technology. Understanding the necessity, more so, finds a curiosity on the part of a general public hungry for entertainment, despite 6 day work weeks, World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II.

Grundlagen des populären Films
Author: Georg Seeßlen
Publisher: Schüren Verlag
View: 6728Der Autor verfolgt das Genre von seinen Anfängen (Das Kabinett des Dr. Caligari, , M- eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder) über den film noir bis hin zum Schweigen der Lämmer, Illuminati und Shutter Island und zeigt was die Faszination des Genres ausmacht, welche Ängste und welche Hoffnungen es im Zuschauer auslöst und welchen Blick auf die Gesellschaft die Verbrecherjagd erlaubt. Wie eigentlich jedes Filmgenre, wie jede "ordentliche" Geschichte, handelt der Thriller von Leidenschaft, von Sex und von Verbrechen, allgemeiner: von Grenzverletzungen innerhalb der gesellschaftlichen Regelungen. Doch anders als zum Beispiel im Gangsterfilm dient hier das Verbrechen nicht (oder doch nur in sehr neurotischer Weise) einem "sozialen Aufstieg über die Hintertreppe", und anders als zum Beispiel im Detektivfilm dient seine Aufklärung nicht dem gesellschaftlichen Konsens, ja das Verbrechen und seine Ahndung dienen, so scheint es zunächst, im Thriller sehr oft zu überhaupt nichts. Das Verbrechen ist weder vom Ursprung noch vom Ziel her eindeutig zu fassen, es wirkt eher wie das Zeichen für eine viel tiefer gehende Beunruhigung: Regeln und Gesetze werden da nicht so sehr verletzt oder umgangen, sondern gerade durch Übererfüllung oder durch die perfekteste Aufrechterhaltung des "schönen Scheins" ad absurdum geführt. Die Anpassung an tatsächliche oder gedachte Größen, weniger die Erfüllung eines Bedürfnisses als die einer Rolle, führt zur Gewalt. Am Ende von PSYCHO wissen wir, was mit Norman Bates und der seltsamen Liebe zu seiner Mutter geworden ist; es klingt vernünftig, was uns der Psychologe da erzählt, und doch beginnt hier die schreckliche Verlängerung dieses "Falls" in unser Alltagsleben hinein, und kein Sherlock Holmes wäre da, durch seine rationalization die völlige Normalität des Vernünftigen wiederherzustellen. In einem Thriller steht das Verbrechen selbst, nicht seine Aufklärung, nicht seine Motivation, nicht seine Determination im Vordergrund.
