This book focuses on the screen adaptations of 65 famous mysteries and examines how the filmmakers either succeeded or failed in the telling of the story. Interviews with several famous mystery writers are included, with their comments on how filmmakers treated their work.

This book comprises what may be called exercises in comparative cinema. Its focus on endings, near-endings and late style is connected with the authors argument that comparative criticism itself may constitute an endgame of criticism, arising at the moment at which societies or individuals relinquish primary adherence to one tradition or medium. The comparisons embrace different works and artistic media and primarily concern works of literature and film, though they also consider issues raised by the interrelationship of language and moving and still images, as well as inter- and intra-textuality. The works probed most fully are ones by Theo Angelopoulos, Ingmar Bergman, Harun Farocki, Theodor Fontane, Henry James, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Chang-dong Lee, Roman Polanski, Thomas Pynchon, and Paul Schrader, while the key recurrent motifs are those of dusk, the horizon, the labyrinth, and the ruin.

250 Classic Movies brings to the attention of movie fans, and hopefully new fans of older films, motion pictures that are well worth seeing, time and again. Actually, the really good movies never get old. The fist time you see a classic film you might watch it for pure entertainment value. The second time might engross you more in the story. The acting might enthrall you more in the third viewing. And the fourth time? The cinematography, the costumes, the make-up, the sets, or the character players, some in the background (and in musicals, the individual dances), all may suddenly capture your imagination. That's the good thing about the classics-they don't get old because there is so much to behold it's almost impossible to truly see it all the first time around. For this book, the author has selected 250 films that have been acclaimed by critics and/or have been box-office winners or chosen as award-winners by various organizations. Are they the greatest movies ever made? Not necessarily, but they certainly are among the best. To add to the full enjoyment of each film, there are data, awards, trivia, a review, back-stories, posters and photographs-including stills and candids. The book covers twenty categories of filmmaking including foreign films. Represented are famous films from England, Italy, France, Germany, Japan, Sweden, Australia, and Russia. While this book is intended as an overview of the great movies of the first century of filmmaking, we hope it serves as an inspiration to readers to look at other movies of the first hundred years because, after all, in the Golden Age of Hollywood studios were making 700 films a year! So we have a lot to look forward to in our research into the great Classic Movies. George McManus spent 40 years as a broadcast journalist, most of it in California, where he covered the Academy Awards backstage. His time in radio/TV also provided him the opportunity to interview, at length, dozens of filmmakers, often while they were on a book or movie promotion tour. These experiences not only inspired this book, but also enhanced the author's knowledge/appreciation of the films that grace these pages. Mr. McManus lives with his wife and their children in Northern California. He hosts The Midnight Movie on the local community access channel.

If student filmmakers want to learn how to direct great films, then they should study great film directors. Studying a director close-up will encourage and motivate students of film and provide a role model for them to follow as they continue to mature their own creative artistic elements in filmmaking. In learning about a film director, it is important to analyze their personality, vision of cinema, directing style, creative artistic elements in film, as well as any other aspect of motion picture production that communicates their talents. With the goal of serving as a source of encouragement and valuable reference for beginning as well as seasoned film directors, "Techniques of the Film Masters" was written with that aim in mind.

I ll Do It My Way The Incredible Journey Of Aamir Khan

I’ll Do It My Way: The Incredible Journey Of Aamir Khan is the story of Aamir Khan’s journey as an actor, producer, director, and one of the true mavericks of Indian cinema. Beginning with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, his debut film as an actor, the book traces his rise to stardom and his evolution as an actor, who is very often talked about as a cut above the rest. All through a career spanning several years, Aamir has been known to be very discerning in his choice of films. He has admirably balanced offbeat movies with box-office hits, neither compromising on innovation nor commercial success. He has re-invented himself at every turn, constantly bringing a fresh perspective to film-making. His entrance into film production and direction was every bit as groundbreaking as it was expected to be. The book covers 20 years of Aamir’s journey in Bollywood and highlights several of his landmark movies such as1947 Earth, Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, and Dil. The information contained in the book is backed by research into 20 years worth of press coverage. The author also interviewed numerous people who collaborated with Aamir on various projects over the years, including Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Mahesh Bhatt, Ronnie Screwvala, Aditya Bhattacharya, Indra Kumar, Mansoor Khan, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Asin, A.R. Murugadoss, Nandita Das, and Rajkumar Hirani. The author has worked on the book for 3 years to give the readers interesting insight into the growth and success of Aamir Khan - a unique, versatile Indian actor in a league of his own. I’ll Do It My Way: The Incredible Journey Of Aamir Khan was published in 2012 by Om Books International.
