George A. Romero : interviews by George A Romero( )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interviews in this collection cover a period of over forty years. In whatever format they originally appeared-the printed page, the internet, or the video interview-these discussions illustrate both the evolution of Romero's chosen forms of technology and the development of his thinking about the relationship between cinema and society.

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a range of contributions from established and emerging scholars, this book illuminates the origins of Hong Kong neo-noir, its styles and contemporary manifestations, and its connection to mainland China. Case studies include classics such as The Wild Wild Rose (1960) and more recent films like Full Alert (1997) and Exiled (2007), as well as an in-depth look at the careers of iconic figures like Johnnie To and Jackie Chan. By examining at its past and its contemporary development, "Hong Kong Neo-Noir" also points towards the genre's possible future development
John Woo's Bullet in the head by Tony Williams( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though underappreciated in contemporary film criticism, Bullet in the Head is a landmark in John Woo's career as a film director. Featuring strong early work by Hong Kong stars such as Tony Leung Chiu-wai and Simon Yam, the film functions both as a modern Jacobean revenge tragedy and as an allegory of fears surrounding the Tiananmen Square incident for Hong Kong residents facing reunification with China. Detailing the circumstances surrounding production and the role of leading stars, Tony Williams argues for the film's central importance as a major triumph of dynamic Asian cinema and assesses its significance both for Hong Kong cinema and Woo's later career."--Jacket

Tony Williams examines the relationship of Aldrich's films to the Cultural Front movement of the 1930s as well as to the blacklist of the 1950s. He also delineates Aldrich's attempts to follow the progressive ideals of such mentors as Jean Renoir, Lewis Milestone, and Charlie Chaplin."

The corner of Arundel Lane and Charles Street by Tony Williams( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LONGLISTED FOR THE PORTICO PRIZE. Potter down to The Corner of Arundel Lane and Charles Street and find a strange landscape opening up before you: the city's dishevelled edge of huts and fallen fences slides towards a sullen and uncanny countryside. Elegant, intelligent, charming and accessible, these poems reinvent the pastoral for dark times. They peddle dreams and nightmares, hollow laughter, elegy and joy, and use a spectrum of forms and tones from the prosaic to the metrical, from wry cynicism to high rhetoric. Meet botanists, bastards, predators and pray
