    Title: Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America
    Author: WATERS JOHN

    A cross-country hitchhiking journey with America's most beloved weirdo

    John Waters is putting his life on the line. Armed with wit, a pencil-thin mustache, and a cardboard sign that reads "I'm Not Psycho," he hitchhikes across America from Baltimore to San Francisco, braving lonely roads and treacherous drivers. But who should we be more worried about, the delicate film director with genteel manners or the unsuspecting travelers transporting the Pope of Trash?

    Before he leaves for this bizarre adventure, Waters fantasizes about the best and worst possible scenarios: a friendly drug dealer hands over piles of cash to finance films with no questions asked, a demolition-derby driver makes a filthy sexual request in the middle of a race, a gun-toting drunk terrorizes and holds him hostage, and a Kansas vice squad entraps and throws him in jail. So what really happens when this cult legend sticks out his thumb and faces the open road? His real-life rides include a gentle eighty-one-year-old farmer who is convinced Waters is a hobo, an indie band on tour, and the perverse filmmaker's unexpected hero: a young, sandy-haired Republican in a Corvette.

    Laced with subversive humor and warm intelligence, "Carsick" is an unforgettable vacation with a wickedly funny companion and a celebration of America's weird, astonishing, and generous citizenry."

    Author: LYNCH DAVID

    For the 10th anniversary of David Lynch's bestselling reflection on meditation and creativity, here is a new edition featuring the author's exclusive interviews with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

    When it first appeared in 2006, David Lynch s "Catching the Big Fish" was celebrated for being as close as Lynch will ever come to an interior shot of his famously weird mind ("Rocky Mountain News") Now for the bestseller s 10th anniversary, Lynch dives deeper into the creative process and the benefits of Transcendental Meditation with the addition of his exclusive q-and-a interviews with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

    The musicians open up to Lynch about their artistry, history, and the benefits they have experienced, artistically and personally, from their decades-long practice of Transcendental Meditation -- a technique that they and their fellow "Beatles" helped popularize in the 1960s.

    "Catching the Big Fish" is a revelation for all want to understand Lynch s personal vision. And it is equally compelling for any who wonder how they can nurture their own creativity."

    Title: Charles Hawtrey, 1914-1988 the Man Who Was Private Widdle
    Author: LEWIS ROGER


    This is a small masterpiece of biographical investigation, and fitting testament to a comic genius whose place in British cultural history is now assured. Charles Hawtrey, the skinny one with the granny glasses, was everybody's favourite in the Carry Ons - but who exactly was he? Up to now the man has remained a mystery.


    Examining Hawtrey's origins as a child star and performer in revue and the Will Hay films, this wonderful little book looks at his career in radio and television, and then to the sad and slow decline of a belligerent recluse on the Kent coast. The high camp exuberance of his acting gave way to bitterness and alcoholism and if you asked Hawtrey for an autograph he'd be more likely to call the police instead.


    Roger Lewis's short life of Hawtrey opens out like a Chinese box to address such issues as the nature of fame, neglect, loss, sexual confusion, Drambuie, betrayal, marine bandsmen, and fine cambric knickers trimmed with lace and blue ribbon. Its moral would seem to be that you don't necessarily turn out as the person you thought you'd become.

Drawing on the philosophy of Henri Bergson, Deleuze identified his work as #147;a logic of the cinema#148;, setting out to #147;isolate certain cinematographic concepts#148; philosophically. To do this, he brings together diverse examples from a variety of major filmmakers, including Ingmar Bergman, Charlie Chaplin, Sergei Eisenstein and Alfred Hitchcock, among many others.

Cinema II is Deleuze's second work on cinema, completing the reassessment of the art form begun in Cinema I. Influenced by the philosophy of Henri Bergson, Deleuze here offers a compelling analysis of the cinematic treatment of time and memory, thought and speech. The work draws on examples from major film makers, including Federico Fellini, Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles, among many others.

    Title: Cinema in the Digital Age 2nd Edition
    Author: ROMBES NICHOLAS

    Have digital technologies transformed cinema into a new art, or do they simply replicate and mimic analogue, film-based cinema? Newly revised and expanded to take the latest developments into account, Cinema in the Digital Age examines the fate of cinema in the wake of the digital revolution. Nicholas Rombes considers Festen (1998), The Blair Witch Project (1999), Timecode (2000), Russian Ark (2002), and The Ring (2002), among others. Haunted by their analogue pasts, these films are interested not in digital purity but rather in imperfection and mistakes--blurry or pixilated images, shaky camera work, and other elements that remind viewers of the human behind the camera.

    With a new introduction and new material, this updated edition takes a fresh look at the historical and contemporary state of digital cinema. It pays special attention to the ways in which nostalgia for the look and feel of analogue disrupts the aesthetics of the digital image, as well as how recent films such as The Social Network (2010) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)--both shot digitally--have disguised and erased their digital foundations. The book also explores new possibilities for writing about and theorizing film, such as randomization.

    Title: Cinema of Cruelty from Bunuel to Hitchcock
    Author: BAZIN ANDRE

    An amazing collection of essays from the father of film criticism.

    Perhaps the single most important voice of cinema in the twentieth century, André Bazin profoundly influenced the development of the scholarship that we know now as film criticism. Bazin has acutely analyzed the cinematic values of our time, extending to his international audiences "the impact of art for the understanding and discrimination of his readers."

    The depth and logic of his commentary has elevated film criticism to new heights. The reputation of André Bazin continues to grow as his writings are published and studied by filmmakers and filmgoers alike. Often referred to as the Edmund Wilson of film, Bazin was more than a critic. "He made me see certain aspects of my work that I was unaware of," said Luis Buñuel. "He was our conscience," wrote Jean Renoir. "He was a logician in action," echoed François Truffaut.

    In The Cinema of Cruelty, François Truffaut, one of France¿s most celebrated and versatile filmmakers, has collected Bazin¿s writings on six film "greats": Erich von Stroheim, Carl Dreyer, Preston Sturges, Luis Buñuel, Alfred Hitchcock, and Akira Kurosawa. The result is a major collection of film criticism. 2 black-and-white photographs

    Title: Citizen Kane
    Author: MULVEY LAURA

    'Citizen Kane's' unchallenged reputation as one of the greatest films in all cinema is matched only by the accumulation of critical commentary that surrounds it. What more can there be to say about a masterpiece so universally acknowledged? As Laura Mulvey shows in a fresh and original reading, the richness of the film, both thematically and stylistically, is inexhaustible. In a lucid and perceptive critique she investigates the psychoanalytic structure that underlines the film's presentation of Kane's biography, for once taking seriously what Orson Welles himself disparagingly referred to as "dollar-book Freud." She also illuminates the film's historical context, revealing it to be a prescient commentary on the isolationist politics of prewar America. 

    This new edition of Mulvey's study is published in the Film Classics 20th anniversary series of special editions, with a new foreword by the author, and a stunning new jacket design by Eric Skillman.

    Title: Clint Eastwood's America
    Author: GIRGUS SAM B

    The steady rise of Clint Eastwood's career parallels a pressing desire in American society over the past five decades for a figure and story of purpose, meaning, and redemption. Eastwood has not only told and filmed that story, he has come to embody it for many in his public image and film persona. Eastwood responds to a national yearning for a vision of individual action and initiative, personal responsibility, and potential for renewal. An iconic director and star for his westerns, urban thrillers, and adventure stories, Eastwood has taken film art to new horizons of meaning in a series of masterpieces that engage the ethical and moral consciousness of our times, including "Unforgiven," "Million Dollar Baby," and "Mystic River." He revolutionized the war film with the unprecedented achievement of filming the opposing sides of the same historic battle in "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters from Iwo Jima," using this saga to present a sharply critical representation of the new America that emerged out of the war, a society of images and spectacles. This timely examination of Clint Eastwood's oeuvre against the backdrop of contemporary America will be fascinating reading for students of film and popular culture, as well as readers with interests in Eastwood's work, American film and culture.
