The Cinema of Kathryn Bigelow Book Description :

Kathryn Bigelow has undoubtedly been one of Hollywood's most significant female players, well known in popular terms for films such as Point Break and Blue Steel, yet relatively unexplored in academia. This collection explores how Bigelow can be seen to provide a point of intersection to a whole range of issues at the forefront of contemporary film studies and of the transformation of Hollywood into a post-classical cinema machine, with a particular emphasis on her most ambitious and controversial picture, Strange Days....

Kathryn Bigelow Book Description :

With her gripping film The Hurt Locker, Kathryn Bigelow (b. 1951) made history in 2010 by becoming the first woman to win an Oscar for Best Director. Since then she has also filmed history with her latest movie, which is about the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden. She is one of Hollywood's brightest stars, but her roots go back four decades to the very non-Hollywood, avant-garde art world of New York City in the 1970s. Her first feature The Loveless (1982) reflected those academic origins, but subsequent films such as the vampire-Western Near Dark (1987), the female vigilante movie Blue Steel (1989), and the surfer-crime thriller Point Break (1991) demonstrated her determination to apply her aesthetic sensibilities to popular, genre filmmaking. The fi...

Kathryn Bigelow Book Description :

Sean Redmond's work fills an important gap in the scholarship on the European-inspired auteur working within the Hollywood cinema machine, Kathryn Bigelow. Structured to meet the needs of both the student and scholar, Redmond's volume situates Bigelow within her historical and critical context, exploring key collaborative relationships and new ways of watching her films. Beginning with Bigelow's biography, Redmond surveys the evolution of Kathryn's career as a Hollywood outsider with movies such as The Set-up (1978) and Near Dark (1987) to Hollywood blockbusters like Point Break (1991), The Hurt Locker (2010) and Zero Dark Thirty (2012).One of the key determinants of this volume is to locate Bigelow as a filmmaking artist who is able to transcend the...

The Algiers Motel Incident Book Description :

On the evening of July 25, 1967, on the third night of the 12th Street Riot, Detroit police raided the Algiers Motel. Acting on a report of gunfire, officers rounded up the occupants of the motel's annex—several black men and two white women—and proceeded to beat them and repeatedly threaten to kill them. By the end of the night, three of the men were dead. Three police officers and a private security guard were tried for their deaths; none were convicted. In The Algiers Motel Incident, first published in 1968, Pulitzer Prize–winning author John Hersey strings together interviews, police reports, court testimony, and news stories to recount the terrible events of that night. The result is chaotic and sometimes confusing; facts remain ...
