Yet Kevin was doubly haunted, living next door to the one-time residence of Bram Stoker, and the shadow of both a vampire and Gerald stretch far across his early years.

His film debut was made during the peak of the Troubles in Ireland, and he addresses the sectarian violence head-on in his first outing, Angel. This film also marked Jordan's long-time association with the actor Stephen Rea, who has appeared in nine of the director's films and is often seen as Jordan's doppelganger. Angel was awarded the London Evening Standard Most Promising Newcomer Award, the first of many accolades. These include the London Critics Circle Award for Best Film and Best Director for The Company of Wolves, Best Film at the BAFTAs, as well as an Academy Award for Best Screenwriter for The Crying Game, Best Film at the Venice Film Festival for Michael Collins, Best Director at the Berlin Film Festival for The Butcher Boy, and a BAFTA for Best Screenplay for The End of the Affair. The director continued to publish works of fiction as well as writing the scripts for most of his feature films, and in 2011 he produced a highly regarded novel, Mistaken, set in Jordan's home turf of Dublin and featuring characters who are duplicates of one another as well as mysterious arrivals and departures at the home of the Irish author Bram Stoker. The filmmaker has most recently produced, written, and directed the television series The Borgias and completed his fourteenth feature film, Byzantium, the story of a mother and daughter vampire duo, recalling his earlier work on Interview with a Vampire"--2001ocn154711372book20080.81Zucker, CaroleThe cinema of Neil Jordan : dark carnivalCriticism, interpretation, etc'The Cinema of Neil Jordan' discusses his entire output as part of the first comprehensive study of Jordan's career, looking beyond ideological and national concerns to view his films through the prism of Celtic folklore+-+96992105461582ocn052693864book20030.90Rockett, EmerNeil Jordan : exploring boundariesCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+73639695461532ocn037721407book19980.88Rogers, LoriFeminine nation : performance, gender, and resistance in the works of John McGahern and Neil JordanHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+6604536125451ocn053903634book20040.76Murphy, NeilIrish fiction and postmodern doubt : an analysis of the epistemological crisis in modern fictionCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+4360198225364ocn401164395book20090.93Pernot-Deschamps, MargueriteThe fictional imagination of Neil Jordan, Irish novelist and film maker : a study of literary styleCriticism, interpretation, etcThis work examines Neil Jordan's use of images taken from Irish history, Catholicism, the Irish land and the world of art and the senses, in his films and, heretofore unexamined novels. Neil Jordan, who is famous worldwide as a film maker, started his career as a writer of short stories, through which he seemed to follow a very Irish literary tradition. As he became more and more attracted to the world of cinema, he gave up writing short stories, and has released over fifteen films since his first feature film, Angel, came out. He has, however, never relinquished writing, and four novels have been published to date: The Past (1980), The Dream of a Beast (1983), Sunrise with Sea Monster (1994) and Shade (2004). All of his five works seem very different at first sight, and yet they are united by both the particular use Jordan makes of images, mostly related to his native country, and his constant attempt at finding the right narrative voice to convey the complexity of individuals and their relationships with others. Moreover, Jordan has never settled for one particular form of narrative and has, therefore, been free to experiment with quite different narrative courses, thus approaching the multifaceted reality of human nature from different angles every time and holding a multiplicity of mirrors to its inherent complexity+-+K612998225201ocn475663203book20090.81Neil JordanHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+4175164138324132ocn429184298book20090.97Pollone, MatteoNeil JordanCriticism, interpretation, etc61ocn038056023book19960.97Neil JordanCriticism, interpretation, etc41ocn060162436book19980.23Contemporary literary criticismCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+088571232531ocn475954268book20070.66Malone, PeterThrough a Catholic lens : religious perspectives of nineteen film directors from around the worldMovie texts are often examined for subtexts and for the way that they dramatize social and psychological issues as well as current movements.
