My Winnipeg by Guy Maddin( Visual )

"The geographical dead center of North America and the beloved birthplace of Guy Maddin, Winnipeg is the frosty and mysterious star of Maddin's "docu-fantasia." A work of memory and imagination, Maddin's film burrows into what the filmmaker calls "the heart of the heart" of the continent, conjuring a city as delightful as it is fearsome, populated by sleepwalkers and hockey aficionados. Take part in Winnipeg's annual epic scavenger hunt! Pay your respects to the racehorses forever frozen in the river! Help judge the yearly homoerotic Golden Boy pageant! What is real and what is fantasy is left up to the viewer to sort out in Maddin's hypnotic, expertly conceived paean to that wonderful and terrifying place known as My Hometown."--Container

This leads to duels and suicidal plunges galore. Sexual frenzies teem in this world of repression, setting off incestuous love triangles and quadrangles with deadly consequences
Dracula : pages from a virgin's diary by Guy Maddin( Visual )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prepare yourself: This is unlike any other Dracula film you have ever seen. It is probably unlike any movie you have ever seen. This film is an adaptation of a ballet first performed by the Winnipeg Royal Ballet in 1998, choreographed by Mark Godden to the music of Gustav Mahler. Like a newly discovered treasure from the silent era, the story is driven purely by images, with occasional sound effects, intertitles, color tinting, and dramatic splashes of red over washed-out black-and-white photography. Distilled down to just a few powerful scenes, the subject is the emotional impact of the vampire's invasion. Lush and dreamlike, voluptuous, whimsical, and exceedingly strange, the film is surprisingly faithful to the 1897 novel, featuring a Dracula who embodies demonic sexual hysteria imported into repressed Victorian England

Diva : defiance and passion in early Italian cinema by Angela Dalle Vacche( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Animated by a luminous goddess at its center, the diva film provided a forum for denouncing social evils and exploring new models of behavior among the sexes ... Dalle Vacche offers the first authoritative study of this important film genre of the cinema that preceded the First World War ... Contrasting the Italian diva with the Hollywood vamp Theda Bara and the famous Danish star Asta Nielsen, Dalle Vacche shows how the diva oscillates between articulating Henri Bergson's vibrant life-force and representing the suffering figure of the Catholic mater dolorosa."--Cover

Few know, however, that he is just as gifted a writer, and his resolutely purple prose, as eccentric and enchanting as his film work, is a true delight. From the Atelier Tovar gathers, in one volume, the best of Maddin's writing: his journalism (originally published in the Village Voice, Cinema Scope, Film Comment and points beyond), unpublished short sto

Collection of films by Kenneth Anger. "A major influence on everything from the films of Martin Scorese, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and David Lynch to the pop art of Andy Warhol to MTV, Anger's work serves as a talisman of universal symbols and personal obsessions, combining myth, artifice and ritual to render cinema with the power of spell or incantation."--Publisher's web site
