STRANGER THAN PARADISE MAVERICK FILM- MAKERS IN RECENT AMERICAN CINEMA de PONCE DE LEON , Juan. Ed. Prion Books Limited , 1998

Reseña del editor:

This is a study of the outsider directors who have come to dominate America's and Hollywood's creative output in the last two decades: the Coen Brothers; Hal Hartley; Todd Haynes; Jim Jarmusch; Spike Lee; Richard Linklater; David Lynch; John Sayles; Steven Soderbergh; Quentin Tarantino; and Wayne Wang. The book places these directors within the story of the growth of American independent film-making, and draws connections to their forerunners from the late-1960s and 1970s, influences such as Robert Altman, John Cassavetes, Roger Corman, and Martin Scorcese. As well as a chapter on each of the above 11 directors, the book provides a general assessment of the explosion of independent cinema in the States: mainstream mavericks (Tim Burton, John Dahl); new queer cinema (Rose Troche, Tom Kalin); black film-makers (Charles Burnett, John Singleton); women directors (Alison Anders, Maggie Greenwald); experimentors, imitators, cult figures, and a peripheral cast of hundreds from Steve Buscemi to Gus Van Sant.

Descripción Prion Pub., London England, 1998. Hard Cover in Dust Jacket. Condición: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. Photos Ilustrador. 1998 Printing. 1998 HARDCOVER book in its original dust Jacket . BRAND NEW from 1998 publisher . Never opened , Never read , Never marked . Book size : 6" wide x 9-1/2" tall x 1-1/3" thick ; 374 pages with index , illustrated with black & white Photographs . Independent movies and their indie film makers . The Coen Brothers , Hal Hartley , Todd Haynes , Jim Jarmusch , Spike Lee , David Lynch , John Sayles , Steven Soderbergh , Quentin Tarantino , Wayne Wang , Allison Anders , Maggie Greenwald , Nancy Savaca . In creative terms, Hollywood has come to be regarded as a spent force, increasingly given to producing undemanding action spectaculars . Extravagant, spiralling budgets ensure that the studio committees invariably take low-risk creative decisions . Yet at the same time the American cinema has been revitalized by the growth of the 'indie scene' - as burgeoning cinematic culture distinguished not only by the ability of young film-makers to work wonders on a low budget, but by the stylistic freshness and thematic originality of their movies . 'Stranger than Paradise' is a ground-breaking study of some of the most talented, audacious and influential film-makers to have worked in the American cinema through the 80s and 90s . and they've made it all the way to Cannes . Some, such as Jarmusch, Hartley and Haynes, have remained wholly independent of Hollywood; others, like Lynch, Sayles, Wang and Sonderbergh, have alternated or combined personal projects with work for the studios; still others, like Lee or the Coen Broothers, have used the Hollywood system to bring their own special vision of of the world to a wider public; while the wunderkind Quentin Tarantino, playing new variations on traditional genres, is both taken up by Hollywood and also transforming it . While these film-makers - to whom the book devotes individual chapters - are clearly very different, distinctive talents, they all display a robust sense of creative independence . Reluctant to bow to the compromises favoured by mainstream Hollywood, each qualifies as an auteur . Individual artistry, however, never exists in a vacuum . Accordingly, the book locates their achievements within the maverick tradition of American film-making, drawing connections with Orson Welles, John Cassavetes, Roger Corman, Robert Altman and Martin Scorsese . Geoff Andrew is film Editor at London's Time Out Magazine, and managed Electric Cinema . He is the author of Hollywood Gangsters , Film Handbook, Films of Nicholas Ray, and others .
