Robert Downey Jr. may be best known as Iron Man, but his career as an actor stretches back to the 1970s and features several Oscar-quality roles. He has worked with a wide range of innovative directors from Oliver Stone and Robert Altman to Richard Linklater and Shane Black, and has played punk kids, detectives, journalists and even a serial killer. This collection of new essays examines, in roughly chronological order, more than 25 of Downey’s best performances in films as diverse as Less Than Zero, Chaplin, Natural Born Killers, A Scanner Darkly, The Soloist and Tropic Thunder. Including a biography, chronology and filmography, the book highlights the inseparability of the actor’s biography from his works and from the unique combination of talents he brings to his roles.

Part of the Encore Film Book Classics series, this is a reprint of the original text to Gus Van Sant: An Unauthorized Biography by James Robert Parish. Few directors in today's moviemaking world have such a controversial and intriguing body of screen work as Gus Van Sant. At the start, the struggling Van Sant used his life's savings to make his debut feature, Mala Noche (1985). This highly regarded independent picture was the springboard to Van Sant's Drugstore Cowboy (1989) and My Own Private Idaho (1991). Although he long refused to be part of the Hollywood studio system, Van Sant nevertheless has created such later crowd-pleasing features as Good Will Hunting (1997), for which he was Oscar-nominated, and Finding Forrester (2000). Gus Van Sant: An Unauthorized Biography is a revealing study of a modern-day Renaissance man who has enjoyed highly successful gallery exhibitions of his paintings, who composes songs, performs, and records. He turns out sophisticated still photography, has written a satirical and controversial novel (Pink) and has directed music videos featuring Elton John, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Hanson. Based on interviews with family, friends, and colleagues, this book explores his successes and his artistic misfires. Above all, this biography reveals how a most unusual talent and independent film icon has succeeded on his own terms.

Recreating Jane Austen is a book for readers who know and love Austen s work. Stimulated by the recent crop of film and television versions of Austen s novels, John Wiltshire examines how they have been transposed and recreated in another age and medium. Wiltshire illuminates the process of recreation through the work of the psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott, and offers Jane Austen s own relation to Shakespeare as a suggestive parallel. Exploring the romantic impulse in Austenian biography, Jane Austen as a commodity, and offering a re-interpretation of Pride and Prejudice, this book approaches the central question of the role Jane Austen plays in the contemporary cultural imagination.

For almost thirty years, David Thomson’s Biographical Dictionary of Film has been not merely “the finest reference book ever written about movies” (Graham Fuller, Interview), not merely the “desert island book” of art critic David Sylvester, not merely “a great, crazy masterpiece” (Geoff Dyer, The Guardian), but also “fiendishly seductive” (Greil Marcus, Rolling Stone). This new edition updates the older entries and adds 30 new ones: Darren Aronofsky, Emmanuelle Beart, Jerry Bruckheimer, Larry Clark, Jennifer Connelly, Chris Cooper, Sofia Coppola, Alfonso Cuaron, Richard Curtis, Sir Richard Eyre, Sir Michael Gambon, Christopher Guest, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Spike Jonze, Wong Kar-Wai, Laura Linney, Tobey Maguire, Michael Moore, Samantha Morton, Mike Myers, Christopher Nolan, Dennis Price, Adam Sandler, Kevin Smith, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlize Theron, Larry Wachowski and Andy Wachowski, Lew Wasserman, Naomi Watts, and Ray Winstone. In all, the book includes more than 1300 entries, some of them just a pungent paragraph, some of them several thousand words long. In addition to the new “musts,” Thomson has added key figures from film history–lively anatomies of Graham Greene, Eddie Cantor, Pauline Kael, Abbott and Costello, Noël Coward, Hoagy Carmichael, Dorothy Gish, Rin Tin Tin, and more. Here is a great, rare book, one that encompasses the chaos of art, entertainment, money, vulgarity, and nonsense that we call the movies. Personal, opinionated, funny, daring, provocative, and passionate, it is the one book that every filmmaker and film buff must own. Time Out named it one of the ten best books of the 1990s. Gavin Lambert recognized it as “a work of imagination in its own right.” Now better than ever–a masterwork by the man playwright David Hare called “the most stimulating and thoughtful film critic now writing.”

Through such internationally-recognized icons as Nike "C", Nirvana, Microsoft "C", and The X-Files, the Pacific Northwest has gained a recognizable identity in modern pop culture. Wet and Wired profiles familiar regional icons such as Frasier, Starbucks "C", and Ken Griffey Jr., but also sheds light on lesser known curiosities such as the J. P. Patches Show, Mountain Bars, 13 Coins, and Bill Walton, providing an encyclopedia of the Pacific Northwest's most unusual and unique people, places, and things. The entries are arranged in seven categories: -- Arts and Literature (Beverly Cleary, Merce Cunningham, and Ken Kesey) -- Business and Politics (Bob Packwood, REI "C", Greenpeace, and Nordstrom "C" ) -- Food and Drink (Murchies, Krusteaz, Rainier Beer, and Carnation "C" ) -- Media (Singles, Pamela Anderson, Gus Van Sant, and Animal House) -- Music (Jimi Hendrix, Bing Crosby, Sarah McLachlan, and Bachman-Turner Overdrive) -- Places, Products, and Events (Slinky, Ted Bundy, the Erector Set,,and Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe) -- Sports and Recreation (Steve Prefontaine, Earl Anthony, windsurfing, and the Seattle Seahawks) From Here Come the Brides to Twin Peaks, the Pacific Northwest is a unique mix of sophistication and eccentricity. Wet and Wired is a useful guide for transplants and visitors, as well as a regional tribute for PNW natives.

This official illustrated companion book features oral histories, archival photographs, behind-the-scenes stills, and the story of the new Focus Features film directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, My Own Private Idaho), starring Academy Award winner Sean Penn (Mystic River, Dead Man Walking) as gay-rights icon Harvey Milk. His life changed history. His courage changed lives. In 1977, Harvey Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, becoming the first openly gay man to be voted into major public office in America. His victory was not just a victory for gay rights; he forged coalitions across the political spectrum. From senior citizens to union workers, Harvey Milk changed the very nature of what it means to be a fighter for human rights and became, before his untimely death in 1978, a hero for all Americans. Part I, "The History," covering Milk's life in New York pre-1973 through his death in San Francisco in 1978, features: * a brief history of Harvey Milk * 90 historical photos * and recollections from Milk's many activist friends in his Castro Street neighborhood, campaigns and eventual victory, Prop 6 protests, the Gay Freedom Day Parade, and Harvey Milk's enduring legacy. Part II, "The Movie," details the making of the film, and includes: * commentary by screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, who was on the set every day * movie stills, side-by-side with the historical photos they re-create * and behind-the-scene shots of the real historical characters who consulted on or appeared in the film.
