Shutter Island tie-in - Dennis Lehane Summary

The year is 1954. U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his new ­partner, Chuck Aule, have come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane, to investigate the disappearance of a patient. Multiple-murderess Rachel Solando is loose somewhere on this barren island, despite having been kept in a locked cell under constant surveillance. As a killer hurricane bears relentlessly down on them, a strange case takes on even darker, more sinister shades—with hints of radical experimentation, horrifying surgeries, and lethal countermoves made in the cause of a covert shadow war. No one is going to escape Shutter Island unscathed, because nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is remotely what it seems.

Shutter Island (Patient 67) - Dennis Lehane Summary

Det är sommaren 1954. På Shutter Island ligger Ashcliffe Hospital, ett hårdbevakat sjukhus för mentalsjuka brottslingar. Nu har en av dem lyckats fly därifrån. Kriminalaren Teddy Daniels kallas dit för att tillsammans med sin kollega Chuck Aule ta hand om fallet. Men på Ashcliffe Hospital är ingenting vad det synes vara. Och detsamma gäller Teddy Daniels. Består hans uppdrag verkligen i att ta reda på vad som hänt den saknade Rachel Solando? Eller har han kommit dit för att undersöka ryktena om den radikala psykiatri som lär bedrivas på Ashcliffe Hospital och som sägs innefatta drogexperiment och hjärntvätt och ingå som en del i den kalla krigföringen mot Sovjetunionen? Eller har han helt andra, högst privata skäl att befinna sig på Shutter Island? Ju längre tiden går, desto mer hopar sig frågorna: Vad är det egentligen som pågår bakom sjukhusets murar? Hur kan någon överhuvudtaget avvika från denna strängt isolerade ö? Varför är den tomma fyren omgärdad av elektriskt stängsel och beväpnade vakter? Och vem är den patient 67 som den förrymde fången nämnt i ett kodat, kvarlämnat meddelande? Ju mer Teddy och Chuck försöker kartlägga de mysterier som omger Shutter Island, desto diffusare blir bilden. Ju närmare sanningen de kommer, desto mer undanglidande blir den – och desto mer övertygade blir de om att någon försöker driva dem över vansinnets brant. Översättare: Ulf Gyllenhak

Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory

Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory Pdf/ePub eBook


Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory - Elsie Walker Summary

Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory breaks new ground by redirecting the arguments of foundational texts within film theory to film sound tracks. Walker includes sustained analyses of particular films according to a range of theoretical approaches: psychoanalysis, feminism, genre studies, post-colonialism, and queer theory. The films come from disparate temporal and industrial contexts: from Classical Hollywood Gothic melodrama (Rebecca) to contemporary, critically-acclaimed science fiction (Gravity). Along with sound tracks from canonical American films including The Searchers and To Have and Have Not, Walker analyzes independent Australasian films: examples include Heavenly Creatures, a New Zealand film that uses music to empower its queer female protagonists; and Ten Canoes, the first Australian feature film with a script entirely in Aboriginal languages. Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory thus not only calls new attention to the significance of sound tracks, but also focuses on the sonic power of characters representing those whose voices have all too often been drowned out. Understanding Sound Tracks Through Film Theory is both rigorous and accessible to all students and scholars with a grasp of cinematic and musical structures. Moreover, the book brings together film studies, musicology, history, politics, and culture and therefore resonates across the liberal arts.

Men's Cinema - Stella Bruzzi Summary

Men's Cinema offers a fresh theorisation of men in Hollywood cinema via a theoretical discussion of definitions of masculinity and the close textual analysis of classic and contemporary films. Through an examination of mise-en-scene, Men's Cinema moves beyond discussions of representation and narrative to an exploration of the physical or instinctive effects of cinema and how we are invited to engage with, desire or identify with Hollywood's vision of men and masculinity. By delineating how Hollywood has built up and refined the language of men's cinema through a series of recurrent, refined tropes, this book critically explores masculinity and the concept of a male aesthetic within film.Films discussed include: The Deer Hunter, Dirty Harry, Goodfellas, Inception, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Once Upon a Time in the West, Point Break, Raging Bull, Rebel Without A Cause, Reservoir Dogs, Sherlock Holmes, There's Always Tomorrow, The Wild Bunch.

CinemaÕs Sinister Psychiatrists - Sharon Packer, M.D. Summary

"This book discusses films with diabolical drugging, unethical experimentation, involuntary incarceration, sexual exploitation, lobotomies, "shock schlock," conspiracy theories and military medicine, to show how fact informs fantasy, and when fantasy trumps reality. Except for six "golden years" from 1957 to 1963, portrayals of bad psychiatrists far outnumber good ones and this book tells how and why that was"--

Wahnsinn oder Phantastik? Analyse von „Shutter Island“ unter Berücksichtigung der Merkmale der Phantastik - Jessica Forberger Summary

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 2,0, Universität zu Köln (Institut für deutsche Sprache und Literatur I), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Martin Scorseses „Shutter Island“ erfüllt den Zuschauer nicht nur mit Grauen und Schauder, sondern hinterlässt eine Menge ungeklärter Rätsel. Elemente des Unheimlichen, Übernatürlichen und Wahnsinnigen führen bei dem Rezipienten zu einem Moment der Unsicherheit, der dem der Phantastik sehr ähnelt. Die Grenzen zwischen Realität und Fiktion, Psychose und Traum, wahr und falsch verschwimmen recht schnell. Eine Ambivalenz zwischen physischem und psychischem Gefangensein entsteht. Der Zuschauer verliert den Überblick über die Handlung und wird zum Schluss mit der Auflösung allein gelassen. Nun stellt sich die Frage, in wie weit der Film „Shutter Island“ in das Genre der Phantastik eingeordnet werden kann und welche Rolle der Wahnsinn als Motiv hierbei spielt.

Léonardo le Magnifique

Léonardo le Magnifique - Douglas Wight Summary

Une vie, des films... Leonardo DiCaprio est née le 11 novembre 1974. " Je suis le roi du monde ! " C'était le cri de Leonardo DiCaprio alors qu'il se tenait sur la proue du Titanic. Le film qui a pulvérisé tous les records (près de 20 millions d'entrées en France) et qui le propulse super star ! Leonardo est bien loin de ses débuts lorsqu'il était figurant dans des séries télés avant d'interpréter son 1er grand rôle au cinéma dans Roméo et Juliette (1995). Il a construit sa carrière sur des performances captivantes dans des films comme Attrape moi si tu peux (2002) et Les infiltrés (2006) de Martin Scorcèse. En 2005, il est nommé aux Oscars et remporte le Golden Globe du meilleur acteur pour sa performance dans Aviator (Martin Scorcèse). Un artiste au multiple talent et à la carrière fulgurante. Ecologiste, il s'est énormément consacré aux causes humanitaires à travers le monde et n'a jamais hésité à affirmer ses idées politiques en soutenant notamment les démocrates. Au cinéma, il a côtoyé depuis près de 15 ans les plus grandes actrices mais côté privé, il reste une énigme et son éternel célibat fait de lui l'un des acteurs les plus convoités. Il a notamment été fiancé aux plus belles femmes du monde (Gisele Bündchen, Bar Refaeli) mais il ne semble pas prêt à s'installer. Imprévisible, Leonardo fait toujours des choix de films audacieux. Grand perfectionniste, il est incontestablement l'un des acteurs les plus " bankable " de sa génération...
