Requiem pour le rêve américain by Noam Chomsky Summary

Le rêve américain est mort. Ce qui était possible autrefois aux États-Unis – partir de rien et gravir l’échelle sociale grâce à son travail, son mérite, ses efforts, quel que soit son milieu d’origine – ne l’est plus aujourd’hui. Pourquoi ? Parce que les inégalités n’ont jamais été aussi fortes, et la mobilité sociale jamais aussi réduite. Un cercle infernal voit la richesse et le pouvoir se concentrer dans les mains d’une infime minorité, qui applique la « vile maxime » d’Adam Smith : « Tout pour nous, rien pour les autres. » Noam Chomsky appelle au réveil de la majorité, aux innombrables petits actes de personnes anonymes. Ce sont ces derniers qui pourront faire basculer notre avenir.

Requiem for the American Dream by Noam Chomsky Summary

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! In his first major book on the subject of income inequality, Noam Chomsky skewers the fundamental tenets of neoliberalism and casts a clear, cold, patient eye on the economic facts of life. What are the ten principles of concentration of wealth and power at work in America today? They're simple enough: reduce democracy, shape ideology, redesign the economy, shift the burden onto the poor and middle classes, attack the solidarity of the people, let special interests run the regulators, engineer election results, use fear and the power of the state to keep the rabble in line, manufacture consent, marginalize the population. In Requiem for the American Dream, Chomsky devotes a chapter to each of these ten principles, and adds readings from some of the core texts that have influenced his thinking to bolster his argument. To create Requiem for the American Dream, Chomsky and his editors, the filmmakers Peter Hutchison, Kelly Nyks, and Jared P. Scott, spent countless hours together over the course of five years, from 2011 to 2016. After the release of the film version, Chomsky and the editors returned to the many hours of tape and transcript and created a document that included three times as much text as was used in the film. The book that has resulted is nonetheless arguably the most succinct and tightly woven of Chomsky's long career, a beautiful vessel--including old-fashioned ligatures in the typeface--in which to carry Chomsky's bold and uncompromising vision, his perspective on the economic reality and its impact on our political and moral well-being as a nation. "During the Great Depression, which I'm old enough to remember, it was bad–much worse subjectively than today. But there was a sense that we'll get out of this somehow, an expectation that things were going to get better . . ." —from Requiem for the American Dream

Requiem for a Marriage by J.b. Edwards Summary

Thoreau once said, "Live the life you have dreamed." The plays in this book are the dreams in the life that I have led. By that I mean that I have drawn upon a life's full experience to construct a fictional story. But these are stories that are meant to entertain, because that's the first responsibility of the theater; but also to explore the dreams and hopes and failures of real people living in our time.

Requiem for a Soul by Clint Gaige Summary

Requiem for a Soul is the story of redemption for an artist. Stephen Vale has been highly lauded as the artist of his generation, but he has never felt comfortable being himself. Driving home on his thirty-fifth birthday to discover himself, what he finds are more questions. Written from the perspective of Stephen Vale's fictional biographer and told through the voices of Vale and those who knew him, this is the eternal story of the search for peace in the eye of an internal war. Advance praise for Requiem for a Soul: "I first met Clint while he was a struggling poet, but he has always had the gift of observation. He is the quintessential storyteller. He packs a lot of meaning into each sentence and at times, each word. I'm sure this will become an instant classic. And, I'm not just saying that to get an autographed copy."—Ron Saikowski, Washington Times "Gaige is a humanist, he is extremely powerful in subtlety of observation and depth of meaning. Requiem for a Soul is a search for love, a search for why we are abandoned by those we love, a search for answers to why we abandon those we love, in short, a search for meaning in life."—Sean Meiers, Publisher/Editor Random Reasonings, Literary On-Line "Gaige draws back the veil of an artist's life and gives us a good look at ourselves. The story and his characters have a clear objective; they look us straight in the eyes and realize, that you're looking at yourself!"—Sara Lindley, Editor, Creative Writer's Forum

Bodies in Pain by Tarja Laine Summary

The films of Darren Aronofsky invite emotional engagement by means of affective resonance between the film and the spectator’s lived body. Aronofsky’s films, which include a rich range of production from Requiem for a Dream to Black Swan, are often considered “cerebral” because they explore topics like mathematics, madness, hallucinations, obsessions, social anxiety, addiction, psychosis, schizophrenia, and neuroscience. Yet this interest in intelligence and mental processes is deeply embedded in the operations of the body, shared with the spectator by means of a distinctively corporeal audiovisual style. Bodies in Pain looks at how Aronofsky’s films engage the spectator in an affective form of viewing that involves all the senses, ultimately engendering a process of (self) reflection through their emotional dynamics.

Pop psy by Jean-Victor BLANC Summary

La représentation des troubles mentaux est généralement erronée et paradoxale. D'un côté, ils exercent une fascination, des tabloïds aux nombreuses œuvres mettant en scène des troubles psychiques ; de l'autre, ils font peur, et leurs approches artistiques, souvent terrifiantes, sont prises pour argent comptant. Fréquemment abordée, la maladie mentale reste pourtant mal comprise. Se rase-t-on forcément la tête comme Britney Spears lorsqu'on est bipolaire ? La schizophrénie ressemble-t-elle à un dédoublement de la personnalité façon Black Swan ? Une série Netflix peut-elle déclencher des suicides ? Si je prends des antidépresseurs, vais-je me retrouver dans Requiem for a Dream ? Répondre à ces questions en mixant culture pop et psychiatrie, tel est le pari du Dr Jean-Victor Blanc dans ce livre à la fois sérieux, scientifique et divertissant. Ainsi souhaite-t-il rendre sa discipline, encore méconnue, accessible au grand public afin de diminuer la stigmatisation dont les personnes touchées par les troubles psychiques sont victimes.

Requiem for a Lost Empire by Andreï Makine Summary

In this remarkable novel, which spans eighty years of the twentieth century, Andreï Makine describes, beautifully but unsparingly, the almost uninterrupted succession of violence, misery, and horror that has been visited on the Russian people since the October Revolution of 1917. For those quick to forget, or too young to remember, he paints a graphic portrait of those years in a three-generational novel that is as moving as it is revealing. A young Russian army doctor is sent to distant shores to bind the wounds of those in Africa, the Near East, and South America that are pawns in the global political chess game during the Cold War. Recruited by an intelligence agent, he experiences the bloody reality of revolution on the ground. The book casts its eye back toward his grandfather Nikolai, a Red cavalry soldier fighting the Whites in 1920, and his father, whose story of World War II is invoked with a passion and force that bear comparison to the best writing on the subject. From the battlefields of the 1920s to the harsh African heat and dust of the desert in the 1980s, from the orphanage where the narrator spent his youth to the art galleries and chic salons of the glittering new West, Requiem for a Lost Empire has all the sweep and depth, all the beauty and insight of the great Russian novels. It is, as the eminent French critic Edmonde Charles-Roux noted, "an astonishing novel, one that will surely stand the test of time."

At the Edges of Vision by Ren?ande Vall Summary

In At the Edges of Vision, Ren?van de Vall re-examines the aesthetics of spectatorship in terms of new-media art and visual culture. The aesthetic experience of visual art has traditionally been described in terms of the distanced contemplation and critical interpretation of the work's form and representational content. Recent developments in installation, video and computer art have foregrounded the bodily and affective engagement of the spectator and, in retrospect, throw into question the model of spectatorial distance for more traditional art forms as well. But what does this development entail for art's potential for reflective, imaginative and experiential depth? Is art still capable of providing a critical counterpoint to the ubiquitous presence of sensational, yet short-lived media imagery when it speaks to the senses rather than to the mind? In a thorough examination of examples from painting, film, installation art and interactive video, and computer art, Van de Vall argues for a tactile and affective conception of reflection, linking philosophy and art. Looking at a Rembrandt self-portrait and navigating through an internet art work have in common that both types of work rely on a playful, rhythmically structured, sensuous and embodied reflexivity for the articulation of meaning. This sensuous dimension of playful reflexivity is just as important in philosophical thought, however, as the transcendental condition for genuine, open-ended reflection. Drawing on the philosophy of Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, Lyotard and Deleuze on the one hand and on new-media theory on the other, Van de Vall develops a performative phenomenology of aesthetic reflection, visuality and visual art, in order to rethink art's ethical and political relevance in present-day digital-media culture.

Requiem pour l'Est by Andreï Makine Summary

'Ce chuchotement dans lequel j'avais cru reconnaître ta voix me rappela une soirée lointaine, dans cette ville qui brûlait derrière notre fenêtre avec sa moustiquaire déchirée. Je me souvenais que ce soir-là, la proximité de la mort, notre complicité face à cette mort m'avaient donné le courage de te raconter ce que je n'avais encore jamais avoué à personne : l'enfant et la femme cachés au milieu des montagnes, des paroles chantées dans une langue inconnue... Je me savais à présent incapable de dire la vérité de notre temps. Je n'étais ni un témoin objectif, ni un historien, ni surtout un sage moraliste. Je pouvais tout simplement reprendre ce récit interrompu alors par la nuit, par les routes qui nous attendaient, par les nouvelles guerres. Je commençai à parler en cherchant seulement à préserver le ton de notre conversation nocturne d'autrefois, cette amertume sereine des paroles à portée de la mort.'

The New Biographical Dictionary of Film by David Thomson Summary

For almost thirty years, David Thomson’s Biographical Dictionary of Film has been not merely “the finest reference book ever written about movies” (Graham Fuller, Interview), not merely the “desert island book” of art critic David Sylvester, not merely “a great, crazy masterpiece” (Geoff Dyer, The Guardian), but also “fiendishly seductive” (Greil Marcus, Rolling Stone). This new edition updates the older entries and adds 30 new ones: Darren Aronofsky, Emmanuelle Beart, Jerry Bruckheimer, Larry Clark, Jennifer Connelly, Chris Cooper, Sofia Coppola, Alfonso Cuaron, Richard Curtis, Sir Richard Eyre, Sir Michael Gambon, Christopher Guest, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Spike Jonze, Wong Kar-Wai, Laura Linney, Tobey Maguire, Michael Moore, Samantha Morton, Mike Myers, Christopher Nolan, Dennis Price, Adam Sandler, Kevin Smith, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlize Theron, Larry Wachowski and Andy Wachowski, Lew Wasserman, Naomi Watts, and Ray Winstone. In all, the book includes more than 1300 entries, some of them just a pungent paragraph, some of them several thousand words long. In addition to the new “musts,” Thomson has added key figures from film history–lively anatomies of Graham Greene, Eddie Cantor, Pauline Kael, Abbott and Costello, Noël Coward, Hoagy Carmichael, Dorothy Gish, Rin Tin Tin, and more. Here is a great, rare book, one that encompasses the chaos of art, entertainment, money, vulgarity, and nonsense that we call the movies. Personal, opinionated, funny, daring, provocative, and passionate, it is the one book that every filmmaker and film buff must own. Time Out named it one of the ten best books of the 1990s. Gavin Lambert recognized it as “a work of imagination in its own right.” Now better than ever–a masterwork by the man playwright David Hare called “the most stimulating and thoughtful film critic now writing.”
