Even Cowgirls Get the Blues by Tom Robbins Summary

The whooping crane rustlers are girls. Young girls. Cowgirls, as a matter of fact, all “bursting with dimples and hormones”—and the FBI has never seen anything quite like them. Yet their rebellion at the Rubber Rose Ranch is almost overshadowed by the arrival of the legendary Sissy Hankshaw, a white-trash goddess literally born to hitchhike, and the freest female of them all. Freedom, its prizes and its prices, is a major theme of Tom Robbins’s classic tale of eccentric adventure. As his robust characters attempt to turn the tables on fate, the reader is drawn along on a tragicomic joyride across the badlands of sexuality, wild rivers of language, and the frontiers of the mind.

The Second Part of King Henry IV by William Shakespeare Summary

Melchiori offers a fresh approach to the text of The Second Part of King Henry IV, which he sees as an unplanned sequel to the First Part, itself a 'remake' of an old, non-Shakespearean play. The Second Part deliberately exploits the popular success of Sir John Falstaff, introduced in Part One; the resulting rich humour gives a comic dimension to the play which makes it a unique blend of history, morality play and comedy. Among modern editions of the play this is the one most firmly based on the quarto. It presents an eminently actable text, by showing how Shakespeare's own choices are superior for practical purposes to suggested emendations, and by keeping interference in the original stage directions to a minimum, in order to respect, as Shakespeare did, the players' freedom. This updated edition includes a new introductory section by Adam Hansen describing recent stage, film and critical interpretations.

The Gus Van Sant Touch by Justin Vicari Summary

Beloved, controversial, influential, the creator of such fascinating and award-winning films as My Own Private Idaho, Good Will Hunting, Elephant, and Milk, Gus Van Sant stands among the great international directors, equally at home in Hollywood and the avant-garde. Examining his films thematically, this book finds consistency of vision in Van Sant’s unique approach to cinema, which deploys postmodernist techniques such as appropriation, nonlinear narrative, and queering—not in the service of the chic but to apply an all-inclusive viewpoint to ageless tales of life, love and death. Van Sant’s films are viewed through a multi-genre prism, including the work of Bruce Weber and Derek Jarman, the westerns of Sam Peckinpah, the music of the Velvet Underground and Nirvana, the fiction of Sam D’Allesandro, and especially the “cut-up”/collage practice of intertextual authorship pioneered by William Burroughs.

Gentlemen of the Shade by Jen Sookfong Lee Summary

Gus Van Sant’s film and the ’90s cult of the alternative Gus Van Sant’s 1991 indie darling My Own Private Idaho perplexed and provoked, inspiring a new ethos for a new decade: being different was better than being good. Gentlemen of the Shade examines how the film was a coming-of-age for a generation of young people who would embrace the alternative and bring their outsider perspectives to sustainability, technology, gender constructs, and social responsibility. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 16.0px Times; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} My Own Private Idaho — fragmented and saturated with colour and dirt and a painfully beautiful masculinity — also crept into popular media, and its influence can still be traced. R.E.M. Portlandia. Hipsterism. James Franco. Referencing the often-funny and sometimes-tragic cultural touchstones of the past 26 years, Gentlemen of the Shade sets the film as social bellwether for the many outsiders who were looking to join the right, or any, revolution.

Gus van Sant by Stéphane Bouquet,Jean-Marc Lalanne Summary

Gus van Sant a profondément transformé notre regard sur la jeunesse américaine. En 2003, le jury du festival de Cannes, bouleversé par la transposition de la fusillade du lycée de Columbine qu'il livre avec Elephant, lui décerne la Palme d'or. Son parcours est fait de métamorphoses successives, des quartiers populaires de Portland, " sa " ville, filmée d'abord en noir et blanc dans Mala Noche jusqu'au San Francisco des années 70, reconstitué pour faire revivre la lutte de Harvey Milk pour les droits des homosexuels. A la fin des années 80, il représente le jeune auteur indépendant par excellence avec Drugstore Cowboy, My Own Private Idaho, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. Son univers peuplé d'une nouvelle génération d'acteurs ( Matt Dillon, River Phoenix, Keanu Reeves... ) affirme son identité homosexuelle et mêle les influences du western classique, de la culture " beat ", de la peinture hyperréaliste et des écoles contemporaines de la photographie américaine. Au milieu des années 90, l'auteur se mue en artisan des studios avec Will Hunting et A la recherche de Forrester. Psycho marque le tournant qui le conduit vers Gerry, Elephant, Last Days et Paranoid Park et le statut d'un artiste protéiforme au moment où l'on découvre qu'il peint, photographie, compose et interprète... L'oeuvre de Gus van Sant est à la fois neuve et prise dans le mouvement d'une génération. Chacune de ses périodes place le cinéaste au meilleur poste d'observation, dans l'œil du cyclone, à partir duquel il ressent et donne à voir les contours du temps présent.

Framing Shakespeare on Film by Kathy M. Howlett Summary

The aesthetics of frame theory form the basis of Framing Shakespeare on Film. This groundbreaking work expands on the discussion of film constructivists in its claim that the spectacle of Shakespeare on film is a problem-solving activity. Kathy Howlett demonstrates convincingly how viewers' expectations for understanding Shakespeare on film can be manipulated by the director's cinematic technique. Emphasizing that the successful film can transform Shakespeare's text while remaining rooted in Shakespearean conceptions, Howlett raises the question of how directors and audiences understand the genre of Shakespeare on film and reveals how the medium alters the patterns through which the audience views Shakespeare.

City of Night by John Rechy Summary

[Rechy’s] tone rings absolutely true, is absolutely his own. . . . He tells the truth, and tells it with such passion that we are forced to share in the life he conveys. . . . This is a most humbling and liberating achievement.” James Baldwin When John Rechy’s explosive first novel appeared in 1963, it marked a radical departure in fiction, and gave voice to a subculture that had never before been revealed with such acuity. It earned comparisons to Genet and Kerouac, even as Rechy was personally attacked by scandalized reviewers. Nevertheless, the book became an international bestseller, and fifty years later, it has become a classic. Bold and inventive in style, Rechy is unflinching in his portrayal of one hustling youngman” and his search for self-knowledge within the neon-lit world of hustlers, drag queens, and the denizens of their world, as he moves from El Paso to Times Square, from Pershing Square to the French Quarter. Now including never-seen original marked galley pages and an interview with the author, Rechy’s portrait of the edges of America has lost none of its power to move and exhilarate.
