Most films rely on a script developed in pre-production. Yet beginning in the 1950s and continuing through the recent mumblecore movement, key independent filmmakers have broken with the traditional screenplay. Instead, they have turned to new approaches to scripting that allow for more complex characterization and shift the emphasis from the page to performance. In Rewriting Indie Cinema, J. J. Murphy explores these alternative forms of scripting and how they have shaped American film from the 1950s to the present. He traces a strain of indie cinema that used improvisation and psychodrama, a therapeutic form of improvised acting based on a performer’s own life experiences. Murphy begins in the 1950s and 1960s with John Cassavetes, Shirley Clarke, Barbara Loden, Andy Warhol, Norman Mailer, William Greaves, and other independent directors who sought to create a new type of narrative cinema. In the twenty-first century, filmmakers such as Gus Van Sant, the Safdie brothers, Joe Swanberg, and Sean Baker developed similar strategies, sometimes benefitting from the freedom of digital technology. In reading key films and analyzing their techniques, Rewriting Indie Cinema demonstrates how divergence from the script has blurred the divide between fiction and nonfiction. Showing the ways in which filmmakers have striven to capture the subtleties of everyday behavior, Murphy provides a new history of American indie filmmaking and how it challenges Hollywood industrial practices.
Dennis Hopper: One of the most talented but controversial actors of recent decades, almost as notorious for his off-screen hell-raising as he is for his roles in such powerful films as his self-directed The Last Movie, David Lynch's Blue Velvet, and Tim Hunter's River's Edge. Jack Hunter has selected his own chronological Top Ten of Dennis Hopper's movies, which are analysed in illustrated, in-depth essays by some of the best cutting-edge film critics of today. The result is both an incisive overview of Dennis Hopper as an actor, and an anthology of films by some of the leading cult directors of recent decades.
The fifth in the ultrascreen series of eclectic anthologies examines the influence of Scorsese's upbringing in Little Italy on Mean Streets and Goodfellas; the urban madness of Taxi Driver and Bringing Out the Dead; the Catholic religiosity that permeates all the way from Mean Streets to the controversial interpretation of the Gospels in The Last Temptation of Christ. It also describes the devotion to US cinema that led the director to tackle the all-American musical in New York, New York, make a sequel to a classic in The Color of Money, and remake a pulp crime movie in Cape Fear. In its surprising wealth of interviews, essays and reviews, Martin Scorsese: A Journey through the American Psyche examines a filmmaker whose works offer little pieces of history reflected through the viewfinder, be it in the era-of-assassination backdrop of Taxi Driver or the bloody nineteenth-century canvas of Gangs of New York.
