9780199973842: Dangerous Rhythm: Why Movie Musicals Matter
Review:

This is a book by someone who is indeed captivated: a love letter for the best of musical cinema and a blown raspberry for the worst... ( The Spectator, Sam Leith)

Richard Barrios's survey of the genre dives vividly into all its contradictions, its seemingly accidental triumphs, and its most effortful, well-meant failures. He knows the litany of films inside out, and there's not much that gets past him: the book is somewhere between a stern celebration and a wake...He has sharp words for every scar on his weathered, ageing, occasionally miraculous art form. And rightly so. ( The Telegraph, Tim Robey)

Barrios knows his stuff, and musical film aficionados are well advised to get a hold of Dangerous Rhythm. He combines vast knowledge of the subject with tangy writing, resulting in a hard-to-put-down read. ( Matthew Kennedy, author of Roadshow! The Fall of Film Musicals in the 1960s)

Few people can discuss early-talkie musicals and television's Glee with equal authority. Richard Barrios sees it all as part of a continuum, which is what makes his wide-ranging book so relevant. His sense of humor and lively prose style transform a scholarly treatise into a highly enjoyable reading experience. ( Leonard Maltin, film critic and historian.)

Simultaneously a rigorous dissection of and a valentine to the movie musical. ( Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

[A] hugely readable, authoritative meditation on the Hollywood musical. ( Philadelphia Inquirer)

[Barrios] writes about his subject authoritatively...and always directly. He does so with an absence of heavy theorizing and an abundance of strong opinions. Part of what makes Dangerous Rhythm enjoyable to read is its idiomatic prose. ( Wall Street Journal)

Barrios knows this material inside out, which allows him to step back to make often inspired observations. ( New York Times Book Review)

Over the years, there have been many books written about the American film musical, ranging from the superficial to the academically analytical. Few have the sheer readability - and concentrated insight - of Dangerous Rhythm, an enjoyable (and highly informative) volume. ( Barry Forshaw, DVD Choice)

Descripción Oxford. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. Estado de conservación: New. Love them or hate them, movie musicals have been a cornerstone of the film industry for more than eight decades, and they continue to be reinvented for each generation. From such classics as The Wizard of Oz, Singin' in the Rain, My Fair Lady, and The Sound of Music, to more recent fare like Chicago and South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, Richard Barrios takes an opinionated, informed, and highly diverting look at movie musicals. In addition to assessing the performers, composers, and directors behind these extravaganzas, Barrios also chronicles the often contentious relationship between Broadway and Hollywood that has sometimes threatened the production of the films."Few people can discuss early-talkie musicals and television's Glee with equal authority. Richard Barrios sees it all as part of a continuum, which is what makes his wide-ranging book so relevant. His sense of humor and lively prose style transform a scholarly treatise into a highly enjoyable reading experience."—Leonard Maltin 276. Nº de ref. de la librería 63878

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 243 x 164 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Insightful, witty, as exuberant as its subject matter, Dangerous Rhythm offers a fresh, revolutionary take on a uniquely American institution: the movie musical. In a book that is at once history, analysis, investigation, and meditation, noted film historian Richard Barrios takes on the entire musical spectrum, from Al Jolson and The Broadway Melody to hip-hop and Les Miserables. Over nine decades, the musical film has been a cornerstone of the entertainment world, yet its existence has been more erratic that any other type of film. Barrios delves deep into the genre, uncovering what makes it a commercially and artistically successful art form that, despite falling in and out of favor with the American public, has a firm and enduring hold on the American cultural imagination. Each chapter focuses on a core issue relating to the musical film: what does it take to make a successful musical performer? What is the relationship between film musicals and Broadway musicals? How does the rise. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780199973842
