THE PASSION OF DAVID LYNCH: WILD AT HEART IN HOLLYWOOD, Nochimson, Martha P.
49 Nochimson, Martha P. THE PASSION OF DAVID LYNCH: WILD AT HEART IN HOLLYWOOD
University of Texas Press 1997 0292755651 / 9780292755659 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Filmmaker David Lynch asserts that when he is directing, ninety percent of the time he doesn't know what he is doing. To understand Lynch's films, Mar tha Nochimson believes, requires a similar method of being open to the subc onscious, of resisting the logical reductiveness of language. In this innov ative book, she draws on these strategies to offer close readings of Lynch' s films, informed by unprecedented, in-depth interviews with Lynch himself. Nochimson begins with a look at Lynch's visual influences--Jackson Pollock, Francis Bacon, and Edward Hopper--and his links to Alfred Hitchcock and Or son Welles, then moves into the heart of her study, in-depth analyses of Ly nch's films and television productions. These include Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, Dune, The Elephant Man, E raserhead, The Grandmother, The Alphabet, and Lynch's most recent, Lost Hig hway. Nochimson's interpretations explode previous misconceptions of Lynch as a deviant filmmaker and misogynist. Instead, she shows how he subverts traditional Hollywood gender roles to offer an optimistic view that love and human connection are really possible.

51 Palin, Michael MICHAEL PALIN DIARIES 1969-1979: THE PYTHON YEARS
Libri 2006 0297844369 / 9780297844365 Hardcover Very Good/Good 
Michael Palin is not just one of Britain's foremost comedy character actors , he also talks a lot. Yap, yap, yap he goes, all day long and through the night . . . then, some nights, when everyone else has gone to bed, he goes home and writes up a diary. --John Cleese For Palin it has been one hell of a ride, but he seems to have maintained e quilibrium all along the way. . . . In sum, it's tempting to call him a Ren aissance Man. But that, as any Pythonite would be quick to tell you, would be silly. --Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World Michael Palin has kept a diary since he was newly married in the late 1960s , when he was beginning to make a name for himself as a TV scriptwriter, an d Monty Python was just around the corner. This volume of his diaries reveals how Python emerged and triumphed, how he , John Cleese, Graham Chapman, the two Terrys--Jones and Gilliam--and Eric Idle came together and changed the face of British comedy. But this is but only part of Palin's story. Here too is his growing family, his home in a n orth London Victorian terrace, his solo effort as an actor, and his writing endeavours (often in partnership with Terry Jones) that produce Ripping Ya rns and even a pantomime. Meanwhile, Monty Python refuses to go away: his account of the making of bo th The Holy Grail and the Life of Brian movies are page-turners, and the so metimes extraordinary goings-on of the many powerful personalities who coal esced to form the Python team makes for funny and riveting reading. A perceptive and witty chronicle, the diaries are a rich portrait of a fasc inating period. C]harming and at times revelator

53 Peter, Etc Brook THE QUALITY OF MERCY: REFLECTIONS ON SHAKESPEARE
Nick Hern Books 2014 1848424108 / 9781848424104 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. In The Quality of Mercy, one of the world's most revered theatre directors reflects on a fascinating variety of Shakespearean topics. In this sequence of essays, Peter Brook debates such questions as who was the man who wrote Shakespeare's plays, why Shakespeare is never out of date, and how actors should approach Shakespeare's verse. He also revisits some of the plays which he has directed with notable brilliance, such as King Lear, Titus Andronicus and, of course, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Taken as a whole, this short but immensely wise book offers an illuminating and provocative insight into a great director's relationship with our greatest playwright. 'An invaluable gift from the greatest Shakespeare director of our time...Brook's genius, modesty, and brilliance shine through on every page' James Shapiro, author of 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare

THE MEASURE OF A MAN: A SPIRITUAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY, Poitier, Sidney
54 Poitier, Sidney THE MEASURE OF A MAN: A SPIRITUAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY
HarperSanFrancisco 2007 0061357901 / 9780061357909 Paperback Near Fine 
"I have no wish to play the pontificating fool, pretending that I've sudden ly come up with the answers to all life's questions. Quite that contrary, I began this book as an exploration, an exercise in self-questing. In other words, I wanted to find out, as I looked back at a long and complicated lif e, with many twists and turns, how well I've done at measuring up to the va lues I myself have set." --Sidney Poitier In this luminous memoir, a true American icon looks back on his celebrated life and career. His body of work is arguably the most morally significant in cinematic history, and the power and influence of that work are indicative of the character of the man behind the many storied roles. Sidney Poitier here explores these elements of character and personal values to take his own measure--as a man, as a husband and a father, and as an actor.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. In Speaking Shakespeare, Patsy Rodenburg tackles one of the most difficult acting jobs: speaking Shakespeare's words both as they were meant to be spoken and in an understandable and dramatic way. Rodenburg calls this "a simple manual to start the journey into the heart of Shakespeare," and that is what she gives us. With the same insight she displayed in The Actor Speaks, Rodenburg tackles the playing of all Shakespeare's characters. She uses dramatic resonance, breathing, and placement to show how an actor can bring Hamlet, Rosalind, Puck and other characters to life. This is one book every working actor must have.
