The quintessential guide to Woody Allen's lifetime of work, Woody Allen: Film by Film examines each of Allen's movies, from when he vented his first neuroses in 1965 with What's New Pussycat, by way of Oscar winner Annie Hall, Hannah and Her Sister, all the way to his latest works of Wonder Wheel and Cafe Society. Woody Allen has enjoyed a career unlike any other writer or director in Hollywood. The impact of his comedy and his psychoanalysis of the modern world have been hugely influential and had a profound effect on popular culture ever since. Filled with key images of his films, as well as lots of behindthe- scenes content. As Woody said about himself: "The two biggest myths about me are that I'm an intellectual, because I wear these glasses, and that I'm an artist because my films lose money." As self-critical as ever - and with a hotly tipped Oscar material new film scheduled for the end of 2017 - Woody Allen remains a force to be reckoned with.

Reality Transformed

Since the late 1960s film theory has been dominated by grand theories that examine motion pictures from a psychoanalytic, semiotic, or Marxist point of view. Irving Singer offers an approach to the philosophy of film by returning to the classical debate between realist and formalists - he shows how the opposing positions may be harmonized and united. He accepts the realist claim that films somehow capture reality, but agrees with the formalist belief that they transform it. Extending his earlier work on meaning in art and life, he suggests that the meaningfulness of movies derives from techniques that re-create reality in the process of presenting it to viewers who have learned to appreciate the aesthetics of cinematic transformation.

From the moment her daschund humped his leg on a Soho street, aspiring rock star/subway performer Curtis Birnbaum knew he was a goner. He sensed Camilla was a woman who would equally inspire and terrify him. And, miraculously, his ploys for her affection work. With the addition of Camilla to his life, the only thing he lacks for complete happiness is that elusive record deal (and some health insurance). But then, ominously, Camilla begins to slip away. In this daring East Village love story, Nick Fowler gives us a hero who is completely honest about his heartbreak. We root for Curtis as he bottoms out and blunders his way through a series of hilarious misadventures--from a nude modeling stint, to a regretable steam room incident at Crunch gym, to a destination he has only dreamed of: the top floor of Worldwide Plaza where the record moguls preside. Through it all, Curtis remains determined to win back Camilla. Delightfully quirky and unexpectedly poignant, A Thing (or Two) about Curtis and Camilla conjures a tale about the price of love that is as true as it is hysterical. From the Trade Paperback edition.
