Solar flares : science fiction in the 1970s by Andrew M Butler( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Solar Flares examines the ways in which science fiction confronted a new epoch and its own history, including the rise of fantasy, the sci-fi blockbuster, children's sci-fi, pseudoscience, and postmodernism. It explores significant figures such as Joanna Russ, Samuel R. Delaney, and Octavia Butler. From Larry Niven's Ringworld to Thomas M. Disch's On Wings of Song, from The Andromeda Strain to Flash Gordon, this book reclaims seventies science fiction writing, film, and television--alongside music and architecture--as a crucial period in the history of science fiction

Film studies by Andrew M Butler( )

"This book offers a concise introduction to the appreciation and study of film. This second edition begins with an examination of early film theory before analysing how films are put together - framing, performance, setting, costume and editing. It then explores a number of approaches taken to film over the last half century - the auteur theory, structuralism, psychoanalysis, feminism, and queer theory with a new chapter on Marxism. There are also overviews on stars, genres, national cinemas and film movements from around the world."--BOOK JACKET

Film studies by Andrew M Butler( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seeing a film is only half the fun. The real joy comes from arguing about it afterwards in the pub or on the journey home. But have you ever felt you needed to know a little more? This book offers a concise introduction to the appreciation and study of film. This second edition begins with an examination of early film theory before analysing how films are put together: framing, performance, setting, costume and editing. It then explores a number of approaches taken to film over the last half century: the auteur theory, structuralism, psychoanalysis, feminism, and queer theory, with a new chapter on Marxism. There are also overviews on stars, genres, national cinemas, and film movements from around the world. With this book in your pocket, you can gasp as directors break the 30-degree rule, marvel as Oedipus complexes are resolved, shudder as you become aware of your own voyeurism, and tell your metteur en scène from your mise en scène. Going to the cinema may never be the same again ..."--Www.audible.co.uk
