    Studying The Devil's Backbone

    R29,00
    "The Devil's Backbone" (2001) is a Gothic film written and directed by Guillermo del Toro ( "Pan's Labyrinth," 2006). The story centers on a ghost that haunts an isolated orphanage during the Spanish Civil War. "Studying The Devil's Backbone" explores the narrative of the film in relation to central concerns, such as genre, theme, iconography, representation, and film language. Through these elements, the volume reads the film's unique blend of literary Gothic, Western, and War film and the use of bombs, ghosts, and color as visual signifiers. It critiques the central characters and compares their representation of women, monsters, and political context against an examination of mise-en-scene, sound, and special effects. In addition, the author provides a critical biography of del Toro, an analysis of his auteurist traits, and an in-depth bibliography and filmography.

    Studying The Matrix

    R29,00
    "Anna Dawson feels that The Matrix is far more substantial than it first looks and her enthusiasm for the film is not only valuable but ultimately infectious."-- "TES" 2003 saw the release of two sequels to the surprise 1999 hit, "The Matrix," prompting producer Joel Silver to declare 2003 as 'the Year of "The Matrix"'. Certainly, interest in the film and its sequels has never been greater, and there can be no better time for using the original film for study in the classroom. Science fiction fans are absorbed in the revolutionary special effects and the convincingly depicted dystopia narrative; action movie buffs relish the conjunction of Hong Kong martial arts techniques with mainstream Hollywood aesthetics; and intellectuals immerse themselves in the film's explicit and deliberate evocation of Baudrillard and higher mathematics. "Studying The Matrix" considers the diverse influences behind the film--be it cinematic, philosophical, literary or comic book--together with its iconographic use of costumes, groundbreaking special effects and its stars, alongside its very particular industrial and ideological background, all in the context of the key concepts of media studies.
