Citizen Kane by Laura Mulvey ( Book )
29 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Citizen Kane's reputation as one of the greatest films of all time is matched only by the accumulation of critical commentary that surrounds it. What more can there be to say about a masterpiece so universally acknowledged? Laura Mulvey, in a fresh and original reading, illuminates the richness of the film, both thematically and stylistically, relating it to Welles's political background and its historical context. In a lucid and perceptive critique she also investigates the psychoanalytic structure that underlies the film's presentation of Kane's biography, for once taking seriously what Orson Welles himself disparagingly referred to as 'dollar book Freud.' In her foreword to this special edition, published to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the BFI Film Classics series, Laura Mulvey focuses on the film's politics, highlighting the contemporary 'rhymes' in Kane's portrayal of a scandal prone press baron in a time of economic crisis

Cindy Sherman : retrospective by Cindy Sherman ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in 3 languages and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This comprehensive catalogue traces the career of Cindy Sherman, examining her achievements as one of the leading American artists of our time. By exploring the myriad constructions of female identity and the body in our culture, Sherman imitates and confronts assorted representational stereotypes, becoming for many an icon of the contemporary concerns of feminism and postmodernism. Essayists Amada Cruz, Elizabeth A. T. Smith, and Amelia Jones offer keen insight and observations from several distinct vantage points, demonstrating that Sherman's work is a lens through which to view contemporary art and its ongoing concern with the profound issues of the structures of the self. More than 200 images show the breadth of Sherman's body of work, from the Untitled Film Stills of the 1970s to series such as Centerfolds, Fashion, Disasters, Fairy Tales, and History Portraits, as well as photographs influenced by surrealist artists. Also included are intriguing excerpts from Sherman's notebooks, selections from her contact sheets, and numerous Polaroid studies, all of which shed light on the artist's process

Godard's Contempt : essays from the London Consortium by London Consortium ( Book )
12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Godard's Contempt (Le Mepris) remains one of the most intriguing and critically discussed twentieth century films. An experimental film made with a Hollywood budget and a stellar cast, an adaptation of a famous novel which completely transforms the source material's themes and concerns, and the climax of the Nouvelle Vague, which also signalled its collapse, Contempt is paradoxical as well as one of the most beautiful movies ever made. The essays collected in Godard's Contempt construct a framework for a renewed set of questions and analyses of Godard's great modern classic. Drawing on work by young scholars from the London Consortium, the essays benefit from their wide range of disciplinary and cultural backgrounds. One of the most exciting recent experiments in graduate education, the Consortium is a partnership of five institutions: the Architectural Association, Birkbeck, University of London, the Institute of Contemporary Arts, the Science Museum and the Tate. With an introduction by MacCabe and a post-script by Mulvey, the collection combines work from those most established of film critics with the very freshest and most varied voices"--
