"Based on director Bob Fosse's own extravagant life, this vibrant and spectacular film follows Fosse's alter ego. Joe Gideon in his relentless pursuit of sex, drugs and self-destruction. His womanizing both supports and debilitates him as he juggles his mistress, ex-wife and beloved daughter. Hovering over all of his excess is an angel. The proceedings are set amid rapturous dream sequences, lavish production numbers and fabulous sets"--Container

Chris Drury : mushrooms/clouds by Ann M Wolfe( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 141 libraries worldwide
"British artist Chris Drury has been lauded for his many installations and site-specific works that investigate themes related to the environment." "In Mushrooms/Clouds, a series of artworks commissioned by the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, Drury brought an international perspective to topics ranging from land and water appropriation to nuclear testing in the American West. In many of these works, Drury utilizes materials collected from such places as Pyramid Lake, Donner State Park, and the Nevada Test Site to engage viewers in the many connections between art and the environment at the micro and macro scales. Drury's embrace of metaphor and analogy also offers multiple meanings with the objects and artwork he creats. He makes visual the myriad connections between the natural and built environment and the historical interface of culture, ecology, economists, and politics on a place."--Jacket
