Steven, Peter (editor):  Jump Cut: Hollywood, Politics and Counter Cinema
Book Number: 40103
Between the Lines 1985 8vo softcover 400pp index, b/w illus. very good. In the world of film, Hollywood has always been the center of power; it has supplied the dominant voice. Hollywood stars and movies with their sophisticated blend of entertainment, art, and ideology have captivated audiences everywhere. But there is another world of film, perhaps lesser known: the counter-cinema. This kind of film provides a dynamic, growing opposition -- a subservice counterpoint -- to Hollywood. It includes the work of radical Third World filmmakers, the women's movement, gays and lesbians, and the independent left. It is a practice that identifies with political movements in society and has developed a conscious critique of the dominant cinema. The essays in this collection bring together an integrated analysis of Hollywood and the counter-cinema, and call for a political criticism of the cinema.

Tornatore, Giuseppe:  "Cinema Paradiso" film script
Book Number: 42867
Faber and Faber June 21, 1995 8vo softcover 95pp very good. Screenplay. English. Cinema Pardiso is one of the most honoured films in recent times. Winner of an Oscar for Best Foreign Film, A Golden Globe as well as a host of major European awards. It was voted Best Film of the Decade by the Guardian. The film tells the story of a young boy who is taken in hand by his surrogate father, the projectionist of the local cinema, and initiated into the magic relm of movies. The film is a hymn to movie romance, all the more so since in the real world love is fleeting, full of pain and regret. It is a bittersweet lament for the love that eludes us in real life, but is there to confort us in the dark embrace of the cinema.

Beresford, Bruce:  Josh Hartnett Definitely Wants to Do This...True Stories from a Life in the Screen Trade
Book Number: 46585
Fourth Estate January 2007 8vo Hardcover in d/w 322pp Near fine. A wickedly funny account of celebrity, Hollywood, and everything in between. What's it like to be a veteran director up against the machinations of modern-day Hollywood, with its self-absorbed stars, studio executives who think 'Singapore' is a made-up country, destitute producers posing as lords of finance - the mad, the bad and the downright notorious. Award-winning film-maker Bruce Beresford takes us through the highs and lows of the screen trade - from high-powered dinner tables to obscure backlots, from the centres of power to far-flung locations -- with a cast of characters that includes Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Jeffrey Archer, Steven Seagal, and many others. Delightfully literate and sharply observant, this is a highly entertaining insider's account of a rarely glimpsed world. Bruce Beresford has made some of Australia's best known and most interesting films, including Breaker Morant, Puberty Blues and The Adventures of Barry Mackenzie, and has had international success with Black Robe, Double Jeopardy and Driving Miss Daisy, which won an Academy Award. He lives in Sydney. This is his first book.
