Publisher: Princeton University Press 2002-11-25 | 336 Pages | ISBN: 0691095221 | PDF | 1.1 MB

Classical Athenian literature often speaks of democratic politics in sexual terms. Citizens are urged to become lovers of the polis, and politicians claim to be lovers of the people. Victoria Wohl argues that this was no dead metaphor. Exploring the intersection between eros and politics in democratic Athens, Wohl traces the private desires aroused by public ideology and the political consequences of citizens' most intimate longings…

English | McFarland (October 22, 2013) | ISBN-10: 0786469765 | 332 pages | PDF | 12 MB

In 1970s Italy, after the decline of the Spaghetti Western, crime films became the most popular, profitable and controversial genre. In a country plagued with violence, politicaltensions and armed struggle, these films managed to capture the anxiety and anger of the times in their tales of tough cops, ruthless criminals and urban paranoia. Recent yearshave seen renewed critical interest in the genre, thanks in part to such illustrious fans as Quentin Tarantino. This book examines all of the 220+ crime films produced in Italybetween 1968 and 1980, the period when the genre first appeared and grew to its peak. Entries include a complete cast and crew list, home video releases, a plot summary and the author's own analysis. Excerpts from a variety of sources are included: academic texts, contemporary reviews, and interviews with filmmakers, scriptwriters and actors. There are many onset stills and film posters.

Spanish film pioneer Segundo de Chomón spent most of his influential career associated with Pathé Laboratories. Chomón joined the company in 1901 and set up a laboratory for adding color to film in Barcelona. He started directing newsreels the following year. Chomón's innovations include the development of several camera tricks, including single-frame techniques, optical dissolves, and complicated traveling shots. In 1902, Chomón successfully combined live-action with miniatures in the short Choque de Trenes/Collision of Trains. In 1905, he was the first Spanish filmmaker to use stop-motion techniques in Eclipse de Sol/Eclipse of the Sun. Toward the end of 1905, Chomón relocated to Paris to direct over 100 short films for Pathé; he also shared his techniques with other directors. He first used the traveling shot (the first time it was ever used) in a scene for La Vie et la Passion de Notre Seigneur Jesus Christ/The Life and Passion of Jesus Christ (1907), which was directed by Ferdinand Zecca and Lucien Nonguet. Chomón accomplished the shot by devising a special skating device, and perfected the special shot while filming Cabiria for Italian director Giovanni Pastrone in 1914. In 1909, Chomón was among the first to use silhouettes in one of the first animated films, the surreal Une Excursion Incoherente/Traveler's Nightmare. Chomón returned to Barcelona in 1910 and worked closely with Juan Fuster to create a series of short fiction films. In 1911, he produced a series of travel documentaries for Pathé and later in the year founded Ibérico, his own production company (he released his films through Pathé). Chomón moved to Italy in 1912 and worked as a cinematographer and special effects technician with the Italia Film company, for whom Chomón also directed several animated shorts. Chomón co-invented a two-tone color process in the 1920s with Swiss engineer Ernest Zollinger. The pair later exhibited two color films at various science expos. Chomón died of illness in Paris in 1929 shortly after returning from Morocco where he was shooting color footage.

The film was a sensation and audiences all over the world were entranced. It was hugely influential and ushered in a whole era of Comedy, Italian Style. Aiding and abetting the mischievous fun was the wonderful score by Carlo Rustichelli. Rustichelli, born in 1916, had begun working in film in 1939 and by 1962 had become a hugely popular composer for Italian films. His first film for Pietro Germi was Lost Youth in 1948 and thus began one of the longest and most fruitful director/composer collaborations ever, with Rustichelli composing scores for all but the first of Germi’s films – eighteen in total. He also worked with other directors such as Billy Wilder, Mario Bava, Gillo Pontecorvo, Luigi Comencini, and provided scores for countless sword and sandal films, spaghetti westerns, crime films, and just about every genre imaginable. He was a superb melodist, and Divorce, Italian Style is rife with great themes, which all serve the film perfectly. In fact, the film would be unthinkable without Rustichelli’s wonderful and tuneful score.

Modernism, Ireland and the Erotics of Memory by Nicholas Andrew Miller
English | Oct. 7, 2002 | ISBN: 0521815835 | 240 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Nicholas Miller re-examines memory and its role in modern Irish culture. Asserting that a continuous renegotiation of memory is characteristic of Irish modernist writing, he investigates a series of case-studies in modern Irish historical imagination. He reassesses Ireland's self-construction through external or "foreign" discourses such as the cinema, and proposes new readings of Yeats and Joyce as "counter-memorialists." This original study attracts scholars of Modernism, Irish studies, film and literary theory.

Genre: Drama, Adult

To break into the film-making world, many well-known actors and actresses first starred in marginal films, such as this one, originally an 8 mm porn-stag flick. 23 year-old Sylvester Stallone was featured in this low-grade, crude film (originally rated X, but drastically edited for its retitled re-release on 35 mm) in his first acting role as Stud, for which he was paid $100/day for two days' work. He followed this role with a bit part in Woody Allen's Bananas (1971) and a half-dozen more films before his breakthrough with Rocky (1976). Then, this little-known film came to light and was renamed and re-released (heavily-edited without the hard-core penetrative sequences) with a more provocative title in reference to his nicknamed role in the boxing film, The Italian Stallion. This adult film displayed two bathing scenes (shower and bath) between Study and Kitty (Henrietta Holm), bestiality, fellatio, lesbianism, semi-light S&M (belt-whipping), and a prolonged orgy scene on the psychedelic-carpeted floor of the couple's Manhattan apartment.
