America's most trusted and best-known film critic Roger Ebert presents one hundred brilliant essays on some of the best movies ever made. Roger Ebert, the famed film writer and critic, wrote biweekly essays for a feature called 'The Great Movies,' in which he offered a fresh and fervent appreciation of a great film. The Great Movies collects one hundred of these essays, each one of them a gem of critical appreciation and an amalgam of love, analysis, and history that will send readers back to that film with a fresh set of eyes and renewed enthusiasm-or perhaps to an avid first-time viewing. Ebert's selections range widely across genres, periods, and nationalities, and from the highest achievements in film art to justly beloved and wildly successful popular entertainments. Roger Ebert manages in these essays to combine a truly populist appreciation for our most important form of popular art with a scholar's erudition and depth of knowledge and a sure aesthetic sense. Wonderfully enhanced by stills selected by Mary Corliss, the film curator at the Museum of Modern Art, The Great Movies is a treasure trove for film lovers of all persuasions, an unrivaled guide for viewers, and a book to return to again and again. The Great Movies includes: All About Eve • Bonnie and Clyde • Casablanca • Citizen Kane • The Godfather • Jaws • La Dolce Vita • Metropolis • On the Waterfront • Psycho • The Seventh Seal • Sweet Smell of Success • Taxi Driver • The Third Man • The Wizard of Oz • and eighty-five more films.

Our Great Canal Journeys: A Lifetime of Memorie...
27,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

For more than half a century, a shared love of canals and narrowboats has been inseparable from the marriage of Timothy West and Prunella Scales. The two iconic actors have spent many of the happiest days of their life together enjoying the calming pleasures of watching land and nature unfold before them at four miles an hour. In 2014, Tim and Pru took to the canals of Britain and beyond with a television crew and a brief to record their best-loved trips along the most beautiful waterways they could find. Little did anyone guess that their seemingly light-hearted travelogue, and the story of their lives that it revealed, would transcend the programme's gentle façade, becoming something entirely more powerful. From the outset, the reflective undertones of the possibilities of later life, and the realities of Prunella's dementia, struck a chord with viewers around the country. Now in its seventh series, the show has been described as 'beautiful and meditative' by the Guardian, 'touching' by the Independent and 'a hymn to the possibilities of later life' by the Telegraph, there is no finer, nor more thought-provoking, travelogue on British television. In this handsomely presented book, Timothy West tells the story of the couple's life and travels. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photography, Our Great Canal Journeys recounts their storied careers as actors while recording their remarkable journeys along some of the world's most scenic waterways. Beyond this, however, it explores with sensitivity the trials, but also the joys, of ageing, and how Prunella's struggle with dementia has both changed, and yet failed to change, their lives together. By turns humorous and poignant, Our Great Canal Journeys is at once a beautifully observed ode to a unique, magical method of travelling the world, and a warm meditation upon love, learning and life.

Quicklet on Dexter Season 1 (TV Show)
3,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

ABOUT THE BOOK Dexter broke new grounds for Showtime in multiple ways. It debuted strong with more than 600,000 viewers during the premiere and its finale set a Showtime record with an audience of over a million people. However, Dexter's success was not strictly a matter of numbers. Serial killers are traditionally villains in TV and film but author Jeff Lindsay created a serial killer who lived in more 'shades of grey.' His original novel 'Darkly Dreaming Dexter' allowed the reader to sympathize with main character Dexter Morgan and the show maintained the book's darker tones. Dexter embraced the concept of the anti-hero and took it to further extremes than most shows are willing to. That is one advantage to the show airing on Showtime instead of a broadcast network because the show creators have more creative freedom without worrying about censors. Editors recut the show for airing on CBS after the ratings success on Showtime and due to programming holes left in the CBS schedule from the writer's strike in 2008. Dexter is currently entering its seventh season on Showtime. MEET THE AUTHOR Dave Beaudrie is a graduate and valedictorian of Michigan State University with a B.A. in Advertising. He also studied Theatre and has performed in multiple productions around the country. He is a professional screenwriter as well with several projects either produced or in pre-production. He is licensed as a security specialist in the state of California and worked in the field for several years. Beaudrie is an avid mixed martial arts fan and has written extensively on the subject. He writes comedy as well under a pen name and resides in Los Angeles. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The casting of Dexter was vital to the show's success and producers found a star in Michael C. Hall. Fresh off his work in the HBO series 'Six Feet Under' and an accomplished stage actor, Hall had proven himself worthy of emotionally demanding roles but the question remained as to whether he could anchor a series himself? The answer was a resounding 'yes' as Hall's intense performance created a cultural icon the likes of which hadn't been seen on television before. Hall was charismatic and funny, even while playing a relatively emotionless character without a real sense of humor. The supporting cast was up to the task as well, with Jennifer Carpenter and Julie Benz standing out as the two women in Dexter's life. Carpenter brought a humor and neurosis to Dexter's foster-sister Debra that was an effective counter-balance to Dexter's stoicism. Benz's Rita was a good-hearted woman who desperately wanted to love Dexter but didn't know if she knew how. Dexter first used Rita as a smokescreen to appear 'normal' to the outside world but eventually developed a genuine affection and sense of responsibility for both her and her kids, which he himself thought he was incapable of doing. The cast was rounded out by David Zayas as Angel, the closest thing Dexter has to a friend in his life, and Erik King as Sgt. Doakes, who suspects Dexter of illegal activity but can't prove anything. Lauren Velez played Dexter's flirtatious superior Lt. Maria LaGuerta, who had a bone to pick with Debra and who was often a better politician than a cop. Dexter's conscience is kept in check by the memory of his adopted father Harry, played warmly by James Remar. 'Dexter' embraced the concept of the anti-hero and took it to further extremes than most shows are willing to. That is one advantage to the show airing on Showtime instead of a broadcast network because the show creators have more creative freedom without worrying about censors. Editors recut the show for airing on CBS after the ratings success on Showtime and due to programming holes left in the CBS schedule.
