The philosophy of TV noir by Steven Sanders( )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 2,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Film noir reflects the fatalistic themes and visual style of hard-boiled novelists and many emigre filmmakers in 1940s and 1950s America, emphasizing crime, alienation, and moral ambiguity. In The Philosophy of TV Noir, Steven M. Sanders and Aeon J. Skoble argue that the legacy of film noir classics such as The Maltese Falcon, Kiss Me Deadly, and The Big Sleep is also found in episodic television from the mid-1950s to the present. In this first-of-its-kind collection, contributors from philosophy, film studies, and literature raise fundamental questions about the human predicament, giving this unique volume its moral resonance and demonstrating why television noir deserves our attention." "With this focus on the philosophical dimensions of crime, espionage, and science fiction series, The Philosophy of TV Noir draws out the full implications of film noir and establishes TV noir as an art form in its own right."--Jacket

The philosophy of Steven Soderbergh( )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the age of twenty-six, Steven Soderbergh launched his career in the film industry with astonishing success. His film sex, lies, and videotape (1989), which he wrote in only eight days, won the prestigious Palm d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, a bittersweet blessing that shaped high expectations for the young director. The film, also nominated for an Academy Award, is regarded by most film experts as a turning point in the history of American independent cinema. The Philosophy of Steven Soderbogh examines Soderbergh's full body of work, from films that brought him commercial success such as Erin Brockovich (2000), to more controversial films such as The Limey (1999), which put his name among the ranks of such celebrated filmmakers as the Coen brothers, David Lynch, and Orson Welles. Editors R. Barton Palmer and Steven M. Sanders introduce readers to the imaginative storylines, philosophically salient themes, and inventive approaches to filmmaking that distinguish Soderbergh's work. Expert scholars analyze Soderbergh's films individually, exploring topics such as the nature of reality in Solaris (2002); the heritage of Enlightenment thought in Schizopolis (1996); guilt, punishment, and redemption in The Limey (1999); altruism in Erin Brockovich (2000); truth, knowledge, and ethics in sex, lies, and videotape (1989); politics as reality and fiction in K Street (2004); and Kantian ethics, performance, and agency in Traffic (2000) and the Ocean's trilogy (2001-2007). Like the Coens and David Lynch, Soderbergh places emphasis on character over narrative, self-conscious stylistic display and visual exuberance, and a deep, often disturbing engagement with the problematic aspects of the human condition. His films take on a variety of cinematic forms, often by joining the traditions of film noir and crime cinema with European styles and themes. By consistently challenging the viewer to question the foundations of knowledge, understanding, and reality, Soderbergh's films have played a significant role in the advancement of American art cinema.

The philosophy of Michael Mann by STEVEN SANDERS( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for restoring vitality and superior craftsmanship to the crime thriller, American filmmaker Michael Mann has long been regarded as a talented triple threat capable of moving effortlessly between television and feature films as a writer, director, and executive producer. His unique visual sense and thematic approach are evident in the Emmy Award-winning The Jericho Mile (1979), the cult favorite The Keep (1983), the American epic The Last of the Mohicans (1992), and the Academy Award-nominated The Insider (1999) as well as his most recent works -- Ali (2001), Miami Vice (2006), and Public

Hitchcock's moral gaze by R. Barton Palmer( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his essays and interviews, Alfred Hitchcock was guarded about substantive matters of morality, preferring instead to focus on discussions of technique. That has not, however, discouraged scholars and critics from trying to work out what his films imply about such moral matters as honesty, fidelity, jealousy, courage, love, and loyalty. Through discussions and analyses of such films as Strangers on a Train, Rear Window, Vertigo, North by Northwest, and Frenzy, the contributors to this book strive to throw light on the way Hitchcock depicts a moral--if not amoral or immoral--world. Drawing on perspectives from film studies, philosophy, literature, and other disciplines, they offer new and compelling interpretations of the filmmaker's moral gaze and the inflection point it provides for modern cinema. --

Passive mode-locking and millimeter-wave modulation of quantum well lasers by Steven Sanders( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Quantum well lasers with their optical cavities electrically divided into regions of saturable absorption and gain are passively mode-locked to generate picosecond pulse trains. Current is injected into the gain region, and the absorber is biased below the p-n junction turn-on voltage to control the absorption level and the rate of extraction of photogenerated carriers. Using only DC or low frequency electrical bias on monolithic devices, pulse trains at repetition rates above 100 GHz are generated for the first time. Theoretical considerations show that quantum well laser properties including the reduction of differential gain with increasing carrier density and the fast recovery time of the absorber allow passive mode-locking to occur at repetition rates far beyond the direct modulation bandwidth of a semiconductor laser, at frequencies above 100 GHz. The saturable absorption in the cavity, however, also induces self-sustained pulsations at a few gigahertz that can interfere with the higher frequency mode-locking process. However, it is shown that increasing the photon lifetime in the cavity can inhibit self-sustained pulsations while extending the range of conditions for high-frequency passive mode-locking. Multisection stripe lasers are fabricated from quantum well materials by etching through the highly conductive cap layer to electrically isolate regions along the stripes. A two-section monolithic triple quantum well GaAs/AlGaAs stripe laser is passively mode-locked at a 108 GHz repetition rate, with pulsewidths averaging 2.4 ps. More stable mode-locking is observed in a three-section passively mode-locked InGaAs/AlGaAs double quantum well laser emitting 5.9 ps pulses at a 42 GHz repetition rate. By coupling a two-section quantum well buried heterostructure laser to an external cavity, the pulse train period becomes comparable to the gain and absorber recovery times and compatible with conventional optical detectors and electronics. It is shown that the laser

This program presents excerpts from and discussion of a new production of Purcell's King Arthur by New York City Opera. Excerpts from the production are interspersed with commentary from the conductor, composer and costume designer. The panel begins with discussion of the origins of the opera and the "semi-opera" form. Morris speaks about his decision to cut all of the non-musical dramatic portions of the text, his ideas for the staging and choreography, his involvement with the realization of the score, the role of dance in opera, the integration of dancers and singers, his interest in baroque music, and his feelings about artists making their creative process open to the public. Glover discusses the score and how the opera depicts England; Mizrahi speaks about the costumes and the relationship between fashion and theatrical design
