    Studying Disaster Movies

    R29,00 R244,23

    The disaster film taps into our fear of events beyond our control, ones that are often rooted in real-life experience, making the genre a particularly potent mixture of entertainment and grounded events. "Studying Disaster Films" provides a comprehensive introduction to a sub-genre that has flourished since the 1970s, fully accounting for the genre's origins and focusing on key films, including "Airport," "The Towering Inferno," "The Day After Tomorrow," and, most recently, "Cloverfield." Each case study presents a complete examination of the film, covering production, distribution, and marketing, and tackles such major critical areas as close textual analysis of scenes, issues of representation, and critical reaction. Within this context, "The Day After Tomorrow" and "Cloverfield" are examined as products of current moral panics. There is also a consideration of "reality" disaster films, such as "United 93." Written in a lively manner, this volume synthesizes central film and media concepts, affording the reader a thorough overview of the sub-genre.

    Studying The Devil's Backbone

    R29,00 R244,23
    "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.
