Gerard Loughlin is one of the leading theologians working at the interface between religion and contemporary culture. In this exceptional work, he uses cinema and the films it shows to think about the church and the visions of desire it displays. Discusses various films, including the Alien quartet, Christopher Nolan’s Memento, Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange, Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell to Earth and Derek Jarman’s The Garden. Draws on a wide range of authors, both ancient and modern, religious and secular, from Plato to Levinas, from Karl Barth and Hans Urs von Balthasar to André Bazin and Leo Bersani. Uses cinema to think about the church as an ecclesiacinema, and films to think about sexual desire as erotic dispossession, as a way into the life of God. Written from a radically orthodox Christian perspective, at once both Catholic and critical.

Audiences respond to three things in the films of Nicolas Roeg, their power, their style and the fact that they puzzle them. The author argues that all three elements are tied together, with the power of the films springing from their source in ancient mysteries.

Nicolas Roeg, der für Filme wie »Don't Look Now«, »Walkabout« und »The Man Who Fell to Earth« bekannt ist, war nie ein Regisseur, mit dem sich das Publikum und die Kritiker leicht getan haben. Dies ist mindestens so sehr dem Inhalt seiner Filme geschuldet wie ihrer Erzählweise, die sich dem Prinzip der Unordnung verschrieben hat. Keyvan Sarkhosh zeigt: In impliziter Auseinandersetzung mit und dezidierter Abgrenzung von den Traditionen des klassischen Hollywood-Kinos setzen Roegs Filme an die Stelle eines auf linearen Erzählkonventionen basierenden Realismus ein vielschichtiges und verzweigtes Netz, in dem sich Raum und Zeit verbinden und verdichten.

Nicolas Roeg is one of the most distinctive and influential film-makers of his generation. The generation of film-makers who define contemporary movie-making - Danny Boyle, Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland), Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), James Marsh (Man on Wire), and Guillermo Del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth), all acknowledge their debt to the work of Nicolas Roeg. Roeg began as a cameraman, working for such masters as Francois Truffaut and David Lean. His explosive debut as a director with Performance, established an approach to film-making that was unconventional and ever-changing, creating works such as Don't Look Now, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Bad Timing, Insignificance, and, more recently, Puffball. Having now reached eighty years of age, Roeg has decided to pass on to the next generations, the wealth of wisdom and experience he has garnered over fifty years of film-making.

During the first part of the twentieth century, Hollywood experienced an influx of European filmmakers seeking new lives in America. With them came unique perspectives and styles from their home countries that forever affected American film production. Well-known talents like Charlie Chaplin, Billy Wilder, and Alfred Hitchcock all made America their filmmaking base, as did other less known but equally influential filmmakers. This is the complete guide to directors, screenwriters, artistic directors, cinematographers, and composers of European birth who made at least one film in the United States. The book is arranged by country, and each chapter begins with that country's cinema history. Each filmmaker from that country is then given a separate entry, including biographical and professional highlights, and synopses and analyses of their better-known films. Photographs from films that featured European talent are included. An index of names and titles allows for easy reference, and a complete bibliography is also included.

A young couple’s dream of a rustic idyll turns into a battle between good and evil in Fay Weldon’s novel about passion, deceit, and witchcraft Liffey longs to live in the country. Her dream comes true when she and her husband, Richard, rent the aptly named Honeycomb Cottage. Richard will commute from the city on weekends; Liffey will have a baby. It seems like an ideal arrangement. But being pregnant, living in the country, and waiting for a husband to come home is not easy. For one thing, there’s really bad neighbor trouble, which Richard refuses to recognize. Liffey finds Tucker, the farmer, far too attentive, and suspects that she is the victim of witchcraft. Tucker’s wife, Mabs, jealous and spiteful, is obsessed by the idea that she should be pregnant rather than Liffey. As new life swells inexorably inside her, Liffey realizes all are dancing to the baby’s tune. This is a wise and moving story about love, lust, and the stubbornness of new life. Puffball is a potent brew from Fay Weldon’s fertile imagination.
