♥ Book Title : Requiem for a Dream
☯ Full Synopsis : "A tale of four people trapped by their addictions, the basis for the acclaimed Darren Aronofsky film, by the author of Last Exit to Brooklyn. Sara Goldfarb is devastated by the death of her husband. She spends her days watching game shows and obsessing over appearing on television as a contestant—and her prescription diet pills only accelerate her mania. Her son, Harry, is living in the streets with his friend Tyrone and girlfriend Marion, where they spend their days selling drugs and dreaming of escape. When their heroin supply dries up, all three descend into an abyss of dependence and despair, their lives, like Sara’s, doomed by the destructive power of drugs. Tragic and captivating, Requiem for a Dream is one of Selby’s most powerful works, and an indelible portrait of the ravages of addiction. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hubert Selby Jr. including rare photos from the author’s estate."Article| Hubert Selby| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Gnawing Vultures from Within - Concepts of Addiction and the Addiction to Concepts in Darren Aronofsky's "Requiem for a Dream"
☯ Full Synopsis : "Bachelor Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Paderborn, 48 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: "A very creative and innovative approach of the topic of addiction and drugs. Formally correct, thoroughly researched and highly entertaining to read!" (zustandiger Prof. fur diese BA-Arbeit) Im Anhang befinden sich hilfreiche Bilder, die die Bewegung der Geschichte unterstutzen., abstract: Die Arbeit ist zwar innerhalb der Amerikanistik geschrieben, hat jedoch auch einige filmwissenschaftliche Elemente. Ich habe darin den Zusammenhang von Drogen innerhalb unserer modernen Gesellschaft untersucht (immer mit Hinblick auf den Roman/den Film "Requiem for a Dream") sowohl in sozio-kultureller als auch philosohischer und psychologischer Sicht. Wer den Film kennt, wird wissen, dass Abhangigkeit hierbei jedoch eine weitere Dimension durchbricht, angetrieben durch das parallel Storytelling der Geschichte von Sara Goldfarb. Die Geschichte unterscheidet sich zunehmend von anderen "Drogenfilmen," sie etabliert eine Ebene von Abhangigkeit, die weit uber die ubliche Nahaufnahme der Nadel hinausgeht. Sie stellt ein Epigramm unserer Gesellschaft dar ist und ein sehr spannendes und lehrreiches Thema!"Article| Anika Meier| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Dark Dreams 2.0
☯ Full Synopsis : "Greatly expanded and updated from the 1977 original, this new edition explores the evolution of the modern horror film, particularly as it reflects anxieties associated with the atomic bomb, the Cold War, 1960s violence, sexual liberation, the Reagan revolution, 9/11 and the Iraq War. It divides modern horror into three varieties (psychological, demonic and apocalyptic) and demonstrates how horror cinema represents the popular expression of everyday fears while revealing the forces that influence American ideological and political values. Directors given a close reading include Alfred Hitchcock, Brian De Palma, David Cronenberg, Guillermo Del Toro, Michael Haneke, Robert Aldrich, Mel Gibson and George A. Romero. Additional material discusses postmodern remakes, horror franchises and Asian millennial horror. This book also contains more than 950 frame grabs and a very extensive filmography."Article| Charles Derry| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Requiem for the American Dream
☯ Full Synopsis : "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"Article| Noam Chomsky| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Bodies in Pain
☯ Full Synopsis : "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."Article| Tarja Laine| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Disjointed Perspectives on Motherhood
☯ Full Synopsis : "Disjointed Perspectives on Motherhood presents the accounts of mothers who have suffered a major physical and/or psychically traumatic accident, and, as a consequence, their minds and bodies have been drastically changed. They live under the pressure of having discovered the alter ego of their traumatized personality, and now, distressed, cannot embrace their unconditional maternal love. Instead, they enter into a phase where they face the challenge of revealing who they are as persons before accepting or motivating themselves as mothers. The mothers presented in this volume also seem to have another thing in common: their transnational, fluid, female identity as they enter into an imaginary dialog that transcends geographical and temporal perspectives on womanhood and motherhood. This collection introduces and analyzes recurrent words that define a woman's body and mind today: fear, competition, motherhood and career rights, selfishness, ambition, destruction, distance, and identity. By using unprecedented comparative critical approaches such as phenomenological, medical, feminist, and re-enchantinent theories, and by analyzing works from literature, cinema, and visual arts, this collection attempts to reestablish and redefine a canonical concept with the intention to revitalize an otherwise taken-for-granted image and role."Article| Catalina Florina Florescu| Statement ..."
