Stardust memories by Woody Allen( Visual )

20 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sharp, satirical look at the high price of fame, Woody Allen's Stardust Memories is a "wickedly funny" (The New York Times) story about a disillusioned filmmaker who is just about at the end of his rope. Sparkling with the confidence of an artist in full bloom, Stardust Memories is "a film to be seen and savored" (Jeffery Lyons)! Legendary comic filmmaker Sandy Bates (Allen) is tired of being funny. Teetering on the brink of a nervous breakdown, Bates attends a weekend retrospective of his films, only to confront the meaning of his work, the memories of his great love, Dorrie (Charlotte Rampling), and the merits of settling down with new girlfriend, Isobel (Marie-Christine Barrault). Plagued by hallucinations, alien visitations and the bloodless studio executives trying to re-cut his bleak new film, Bates struggles to find a reason to go on living. But when he falls prey to a gun-wielding fanatic, his zany brush with death reveals that there is value to his own existence, and that often, the best reason to go on living is life itself

Cinematographer style( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Belying what many think of as the technical orientation of their job, cinematographers can be remarkably loquacious, a fact evident from the beginning of the interviews with 110 prominent practitioners of the craft. The men and women interviewed are interested in discussing the aesthetics and emotional content of light, composition, movement, and color--the building blocks of the film image. Forget directors, actors, and screenwriters: based on this documentary, nobody talks as passionately or poetically about the art of film as cinematographers

She was savagely beaten once by a man from Pennsylvania, who may have been his friend. Taking a journey into the underbelly of the Big Apple the two begin to realize that everything and everyone may not be what they seem. Dangers lurk in the shadows, old habits become harder to break, and love is a four-letter word best left unspoken for two people from two very different worlds
