DAS FULMINANTE DEBÜT DES DÜSTERSTEN REGISSEURS DER WELT - »Ich glaube, dass man sich alles vorstellen kann. Man sollte nur nicht alles tun« sagt David Cronenberg David Cronenberg entführt uns auf die verbotene Seite des Lebens – dorthin, wo man den anderen aus Liebe verschlingt. Naomi ist Journalistin, Nathan Fotograf - immer unterwegs, ist das Paar meist getrennt, aber stets per Facebook verbunden. Sie sind die perfekten Globetrotter. Naomi recherchiert in Paris ein sonderbares Verbrechen. Nathan fotografiert in einer Budapester Spezialklinik eine riskante Operation. Das Abgründige zieht sie an, stürzt die beiden in eine leidenschaftliche Amour fou im freien Fall. Verstörend unheimlich scheint der Roman mehr von uns zu wissen, als wir selbst wahrhaben wollen.

For more than 30 years, David Cronenberg has produced films, mostly outside the Studio system, which continue to disturb, surprise and challenge audiences. He has also been repeatedly drawn to literary fiction for inspiration, adapting works by figures like William Burroughs, J.G. Ballard and Patrick McGrath. This book is only the second single-authored study on Cronenberg and as well as containing the first detailed analysis of eXistenZ (1999) Spider (2003) and A History of Violence (2005), it is the first to explore how understanding certain written texts, from both underground and mainstream fiction, can help us understand how Cronenberg's films work.

The Media Violence Debate

Ill Effects is a radical re-examination of the whole 'media effects' debate. It questions not only whether the media is capable of directly influencing people's views and actions, but also whether the idea of 'effects' is the most useful way of conceptualising the relationship between the media and audiences. Ill Effects looks at the reasons why the media are routinely blamed for horrific events such as the murders of James Bulger and Suzanne Capper and the Hungerford massacre, as well as for perceived trends such as the alleged 'death of the family' and the rise of 'yob culture'. The authors' concern goes beyond individual cases: they discuss the development and current state of play of research into media effects, the remarkable power of 'common-sense' notions of media effects and the way in which the effects issue has become embroiled in debates about freedom of expression and censorship. They suggest how audiences really respond to media texts, and argue that there is an urgent need for informed and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the media.

New York nach der Apokalypse: Es gibt nur noch zwei Sorten von Menschen, Nicht-Infizierte und Infizierte, die als Zombies ihr Unwesen treiben. In Zone One, dem südlichen Teil von Manhattan, soll Mark Spitz, ein Held von konkurrenzloser Mittelmäßigkeit, mit einem Trupp Zivilisten die Zombies bekämpfen und die Menschheit retten. Doch ist er vielleicht selbst schon einer von ihnen? Colson Whitehead hat eine grandiose Persiflage des Horror-Genres geschrieben, in der sich Trash-Talk mit feinstem Humor verbindet, ein Porträt der Megapole New York – wie sie werden könnte oder bereits schon ist.

Architecture + Film II "All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun."—Jean-Luc Godard An integral part of today’s culture, film has become a major frame of reference for architects, artists, writers and cultural theorists. Following up on the popularity of the 1994 issue of Architectural Design, ‘Architecture and Film I’, this title takes a multi-faceted look at the representation of architecture through the big screen. Examples are drawn from a wide range of cinematic periods and genres — early Film Noir, Soviet cinema, Jacques Tati, Mall Movies, Los Angeles disaster movies, cyborg and sci-fi, horror movies and James Bond. The association between architecture and film is explored from every angle, architecture is looked at as setting and scenery, and as subject. Film-makers give their account of making architectural documentaries; the evolution of cinema buildings from sideshow to arthouse is examined; the architect-turned-director Patrick Keiller is interviewed; and film-inspired architectural projects are featured
