♥ 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 : 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 : Darren AronofskyÂ?s Films and the Fragility of Hope
☯ Full Synopsis : "Darren Aronofsky's Films and the Fragility of Hope offers the first sustained analysis of the current oeuvre of the film director, screenwriter, and producer Darren Aronofsky. Including Pi (1998), Requiem for a Dream (2000), The Fountain (2006), The Wrestler (2008), Black Swan (2010), and Noah (2014), Aronofsky's filmography is discussed with respect to his style and the themes of his films, making astute connections with the work of other directors, other movies and works of art, and connecting his films with other disciplines such as math, philosophy, psychology, and art history. Jadranka Skorin-Kapov deploys her background in philosophy and math to analyze an American filmmaker with an individual voice, working on both independent productions and big-budget Hollywood films. Aronofsky is revealed to be a philosopher's director, considering the themes of life and death, addiction and obsession, sacrifice, and the fragility of hope. Skorin-Kapov discusses his ability to visually present challenging intersections between art and philosophy. Concluding with a transcript of a conversation between the author and Aronofsky himself, Darren Aronofsky's Films and the Fragility of Hope is a much-needed study on this American auteur."Article| Jadranka Skorin-Kapov| Statement ..."

This chronicle is a beautiful, dynamic presentation of that sequence, with corresponding screen grabs, behind-the-scenes photography, the script as it pertains to the sequence, and the "maps" of his shot list. mother! The Making of the Fever Dream also includes a preface from Aronofsky about this shoot, and this book is a record of a film that will have audiences, Aronofsky fans, and film school denizens discussing the movie for years to come."Article| Darren Aronofsky| Statement ..."
