Taxi driver by Amy Taubin( Book )

24 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and French and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scorsese transformed the script into what is now considered one of the two or three definitive American films of the 1970s. De Niro is mesmerising as Travis Bickle--pent up, bigoted, steadily slipping into psychosis, the personification of American post-Vietnam masculinity. Cybill Shepherd and Jodie Foster give fine support and Scorsese brought in Bernard Herrmann, the greatest of film composers, to write what turned out to be his last score. Crucially, Scorsese rooted Taxi Driver in its New York locations, tuning the film's violence into the hard reality of the city. Technically thrilling though it is, Taxi Driver is profoundly disturbing--finding, as Amy Taubin shows, racism, misogyny and gun fetishism at the heart of American culture

After being diagnosed with a rare and mysterious eye condition, Gray recalls his hilarious and obsessive pursuits into alternative healing. His mission takes him on different cultural adventures: to a Native American sweat ceremony involving mass nude encounters in a sweatbox; to a debilitating raw vegetable diet guru; and, most memorably, a trip to the Philippines to try out the "Elvis Presley of psychic surgeons."
James Nares by James Nares( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This long-awaited comprehensive monograph on James Nares brings together his paintings and films. Upon his arrival in New York in 1974, British-born James Nares became a central member of the city's vibrant No Wave art scene, making experimental Super 8 films, playing in downtown bands, and staging live performances. The following decade, he turned to painting, using handmade brushes to create monumental strokes that are almost three-dimensional in their detail and depth. Today, Nares continues to employ the mediums of film and paint to explore physicality, motion, and the unfolding of time, as seen in his 2011 video Street, exhibited to great acclaim at such institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. This definitive monograph, produced in close collaboration with the artist, surveys the entirety of Nares's career. Lushly illustrated, including paintings, photographs, and stills that have never before been published, the book features essays by leading film critic Amy Taubin, cultural writer Glenn O'Brien, and innovative film curator Ed Halter in addition to an illuminating conversation between Nares and longtime friend and fellow artist Christopher Wool."--Jacket

Then he disappears, re-emerging incognito in Bolivia, where he organizes a small group of Cuban comrades and Bolivian recruits to start the great Latin American Revolution.

Journeys from Berlin : 1971 by Yvonne Rainer( Visual )

2 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prompted by experience as an expatriate American artist in (West) Berlin, Journeys from Berlin is a curiously prescient, relevant film on the nature and psychology of violence, isolation, trauma, and repression. The sounds of an urban couple's the off-screen conversations are juxtaposed against a scrolling text describing the political climate of 1960s Cold War era (West) Germany, as the government scrambled to contain the threat posed by a domestic terrorist group, the Baader-Meinhof gang (Red Army Faction). The film is a multi-layered reflection of seeming irresolvable, contradictory synchronicity - of dichotomous collisions between image and sound, words and sentiment, time and memory, ideology and action

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In New York City's Central Park in 1968, a director and his crew are shooting a scene for a movie involving a bitter argument between a young married couple. As the director re-shoots the same scene from multiple angles, cameras film the "real" action as they capture the reactions of the actors, the director, an increasingly disenchanted crew and various mystified onlookers. Thirty-five years later, the director goes back to Central Park to film a sequel using the same actors playing the same roles. Uses multiple cameras, mixing cinema verite and conventional shooting styles, as well as improvisation and scripted dialog to observe and reflect upon the creative aspects of the filmmaking process, blurring lines between reality and fiction
