Ethan Coen (b. 1957) and Joel Coen (b. 1954), known as the Coen brothers, are among the most creative of contemporary American directors. From their very first feature, Blood Simple (1984), to their most recent film, True Grit (2010), they have written, directed and produced their films jointly. Their style is unique, somewhere between film noir (Fargo, 1996; No Country for Old Men, 2007) and mordant comedy (The Big Lebowski, 1998; A Serious Man, 2009). No matter what genre they tackle, their films deal with recurrent themes: American ethnicity, religion and Judaism, brotherhood and the family unit. They have received numerous awards, including a Palme d'Or for Barton Fink (1991) and four Oscars - including best Picture - for No Country for Old Men (2007).

The concepts and theories surrounding the aesthetic category of the grotesque are explored in this book by pursuing their employment in the films of American auteurs Tim Burton, Terry Gilliam, the Coen Brothers and David Lynch. The author argues that interpreting these directors’ films through the lens of the grotesque allows us1to situate both the auteurs and the films within a long history of the grotesque in art and aesthetics. This cultural tradition effectively subsumes the contribution of any artist or1genre that intersects it but also affords the artist or genre—the auteur and the genre filmmaker—a pantheon and an abundance of images, themes, and motifs through which he1or she can subversively represent the world and our place in it.

Intelligent, experimental, frightening, funny and always delightfully surprising, Coen brothers' films mark a constant high-point in the cinema of the Eighties and Nineties. Their eccentric vision is born of a unique relationship: Joel Coen directs, Ethan produces, they both write. Although their films share many themes and, indeed, many actors, their subjects range from the hard noir of Blood Simple via the sophisticated fantasy of The Hudsucker Proxy to the frostbitten comedy-of-errors of Fargo. As well as winning critical acclaim all over the world, their films have led the way for the renaissance in American independent movie-making and inspired directors like Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction), Danny Boyle (Shallow Grave, Trainspotting) and the Wachowski Brothers (Bound, The Matrix). What's in this Pocket Essential guide? As well as an introductory essay, each of the Coen brothers' films is discussed in detail, including the enigmatic Miller's Crossing, the perplexing Barton Fink and the madcap The Big Lebowski - and there's a handy multi-media reference at the back...

Menschen auf der Flucht. Marseille im Sommer 1940: Am Rande Europas versammeln sich die von den Nazis Verfolgten und Bedrohten. Sie hetzen nach Visa, Bescheinigungen und Stempeln, um nach Übersee ins rettende Exil zu entkommen. Im Chaos der Stadt, in den Cafés, auf dem Gang von Behörde zu Behörde kreuzen sich ihre Wege – und für kurze Zeit sind fremde Leben durch Hoffnungen, Träume und Leidenschaften miteinander verbunden. »Ein zeitaktueller Roman.« Hanjo Kesting, NDR. »›Transit‹ gehört zu den Büchern, die in mein Leben eingreifen, an denen mein Leben weiterschreibt, so dass ich sie alle paar Jahre zur Hand nehmen muss, um zu sehen, was inzwischen mit mir und mit ihnen passiert ist.« Christa Wolf.
