Film Theory Goes to the Movies
Film Theory Goes to the Movies fills the gap in film theory literature which has failed to analyze high-grossing blockbusters. The contributors in this volume, however, discuss such popular films as The Silence of the Lambs, Dances With Wolves, Terminator II, Pretty Woman, Truth or Dare, Mystery Train, and Jungle Fever. They employ a variety of critical approaches, from industry analysis to reception study, to close readings informed by feminist, deconstructive and postmodernist theory, as well as recent developments in African American and gay and lesbian criticism. An important introduction to contemporary Hollywood, this anthology will be of interest to those involved in the fields of film theory, literary theory, popular culture, and women's studies.

Encyclopedia of French Film Directors
Cinema has been long associated with France, dating back to 1895, when Louis and Auguste Lumi_re screened their works, the first public viewing of films anywhere. Early silent pioneers Georges MZli_s, Alice Guy BlachZ and others followed in the footsteps of the Lumi_re brothers and the tradition of important filmmaking continued throughout the 20th century and beyond. In Encyclopedia of French Film Directors, Philippe Rège identifies every French director who has made at least one feature film since 1895. From undisputed masters to obscure one-timers, nearly 3,000 directors are cited here, including at least 200 filmmakers not mentioned in similar books published in France. Each director's entry contains a brief biographical summary, including dates and places of birth and death; information on the individual's education and professional training; and other pertinent details, such as real names (when the filmmaker uses a pseudonym). The entries also provide complete filmographies, including credits for feature films, shorts, documentaries, and television work. Some of the most important names in the history of film can be found in this encyclopedia, from masters of the Golden Age_Jean Renoir and RenZ Clair_to French New Wave artists such as Fran_ois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.

The Phantom of the Opera
The Opera ghost really existed. He was not, as was long believed, a creature of the imagination of the artists, the superstition of the managers, or a product of the absurd and impressionable brains of the young ladies of the ballet, their mothers, the box-keepers, the cloak-room attendants or the concierge. Yes, he existed in flesh and blood, although he assumed the complete appearance of a real phantom; that is to say, of a spectral shade. When I began to ransack the archives of the National Academy of Music I was at once struck by the surprising coincidences between the phenomena ascribed to the "ghost" and the most extraordinary and fantastic tragedy that ever excited the Paris upper classes; and I soon conceived the idea that this tragedy might reasonably be explained by the phenomena in question. The events do not date more than thirty years back; and it would not be difficult to find at the present day, in the foyer of the ballet, old men of the highest respectability, men upon whose word one could absolutely rely, who would remember as though they happened yesterday the mysterious and dramatic conditions that attended the kidnapping of Christine Daae, the disappearance of the Vicomte de Chagny and the death of his elder brother, Count Philippe, whose body was found on the bank of the lake that exists in the lower cellars of the Opera on the Rue-Scribe side. But none of those witnesses had until that day thought that there was any reason for connecting the more or less legendary figure of the Opera ghost with that terrible story. The truth was slow to enter my mind, puzzled by an inquiry that at every moment was complicated by events which, at first sight, might be looked upon as superhuman; and more than once I was within an ace of abandoning a task in which I was exhausting myself in the hopeless pursuit of a vain image. At last, I received the proof that my presentiments had not deceived me, and I was rewarded for all my efforts on the day when I acquired the certainty that the Opera ghost was more than a mere shade....
Charlot au coeur de l criture cin matographique de Chaplin
Cet ouvrage en deux tomes - Le Muet et le Parlant - interroge l'écriture cinématographique de Chaplin. dont l'œuvre compte pas moins de quatre-vingts films, réalisés de 1914 à 1967. La critique ayant généralement négligé le travail du réalisateur proprement dit a paru judicieux à l'auteur de se demander comment Chaplin concevait sa démarche, et comment il composait ses films, à partir de la figure qu'il invente : Charlot. L'exceptionnelle carrière de Chaplin, qui débute quasiment avec l'histoire du cinématographe. lui permet de connaître le passage du muet au parlant. Ce bouleversement technique révolutionnaire rencontre d'abord ses farouches réticences, mais il le contraint finalement à repenser son écriture et son personnage mythique. Mariange Ramozzi-Doreau s'efforce de saisir les liens qu'entretiennent dès l'origine, Charlot et l'esthétique Chaplinienne, et d'analyser les métamorphoses auxquelles on assiste lorsque Chaplin écrit pour le Cinéma parlant. à partir de 1940. Elle tend à montrer la compétence technique du cinéaste : l'originalité de Chaplin est d avoir pensé son art en le fondant sur le persona unique de Charlot, dont lui seul était à même de réaliser les avatars les plus insoupçonnés. L'ouvrage voudrait aussi faire partager au lecteur l'engouement de son auteur pour cette figure haute en couleurs d'un cinéma drôle et pétillant d'intelligence.
