Summary:

'A blisteringly imaginative crime novelist...violent, amoral, terse and fast-moving...a classic American novelist' Kirkus Reviews Bill Collins is young, good looking, agile and strong, but he's a drifter with mild multiple neuroses, in and out of institutions, and dangerously violent on occasion. When he gets involved with the hard-drinking Fay Anderson and the deceptively pleasant ex-police officer everyone knows as Uncle Bud in a ruthless kidnap plot, everything goes to hell in a hurry, and the end, for Bill, is inevitable and shattering. This is a tour de force of paranoia and violence from the master of the crime noir novel.

Summary:

Frank Dillon, il nous ressemble bien, au fond, à vous comme à moi. Sauf qu'il est un peu plus fou, et que ça le tracasse. Et que là où vous et moi, nous nous contentons d'oublier d'écrire à notre vieille grand-mère pour le Nouvel An, lui, il va plus loin dans le crime : il tue, et plusieurs fois. Mais au bout du compte, s'estime aussi innocent que vous et moi. Est-ce le dernier des salauds, ou le premier des pauvres types ?

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.”

Summary:

"Il faut laisser sortir ses monstres, si on ne veut pas que ce soient eux qui nous bouffent." J'ai connu un potier dans le Berry : quand ça le faisait chier de faire des assiettes, toujours les mêmes, il prenait sa terre et il faisait un monstre. Un énorme monstre. En terre cuite. Et il disait : "Je fais ça parce qu'il faut que ça sorte ! J'en ai plein comme ça à l'intérieur de moi !" Il avait raison. Il faut laisser sortir ses monstres, si on ne veut pas que ce soient eux qui nous bouffent.

Summary:

Sitôt sorti de prison, Doc McCoy programme avec son épouse Carol un hold-up dont le butin doit leur permettre d'éponger leurs dettes. Si Doc et Carol nourrissent l'un pour l'autre une grande passion, ils n'en sont pas moins des gangsters sanguinaires, comme en témoignent le complice qu'ils éliminent, les malheureux qui croisent leur route ou le juge que Carol avait corrompu pour faire libérer son mari. Une violence exacerbée par leur longue séparation, et que la paranoïa inhérente à toute cavale ne fait rien pour arranger. Durement éprouvés par leur fuite, ils commencent à se méfier l'un de l'autre.

De Londres au fin fond des Carpates, quel périple ! En arrivant à Bistritz, Jonathan Harker est épuisé. Mais son hôte, le comte Dracula, a tout prévu : une chambre est retenue à l'auberge. Le lendemain, Jonathan prendra la diligence jusqu'au col de Borgo. De là, une calèche le conduira au château. Mais pourquoi les habitants du village se signent-ils avec des mines épouvantées quand Jonathan leur dit où il compte se rendre ? Pourquoi lui fait-on cadeau d'un crucifix ? De guirlandes d'ail ? Il est vrai que ce pays est celui de toutes les superstitions... Malgré ces mises en garde, Jonathan Harker poursuit sa route. Certes, ces montagnes escarpées, ces loups qui hurlent dans le lointain ont de quoi vous faire frissoner. Mais enfin, nous sommes au XIXe siècle, que diable ! Et Jonathan est un homme raisonnable...

Summary:

Dans la grande tradition du roman sudiste, La Couleur pourpre, qui dénonce l'oppression raciale et sexuelle dont furent victimes les femmes noires, a fait date. Celie et Nettie sont deux soeurs séparées à l'adolescence mais liées par un amour indéfectible que ne terniront ni les brimades ni le mépris, ni les guerres ni l'absence. Celie, mariée enfant à un homme violent, ne reçoit pas les lettres que lui adresse Nettie, devenue missionnaire en Afrique, car son mari les subtilise. Ignorant l'adresse de sa soeur, elle-même envoie ses lettres au Bon Dieu. Une correspondance sans espoir de réponse. Une correspondance qui sauvera les deux femmes du désespoir. Lauréat du prix Pulitzer et de l'American Book Award en 1983, La Couleur pourpre a été adapté au cinéma en 1984 par Steven Spielberg.

Summary:

Frankenstein ou Le Prométhée moderne (Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus) est un roman gothique et considéré a posteriori comme le précurseur de la science-fiction, publié en 1818 par la jeune britannique Mary Shelley , maîtresse et future épouse du poète Shelley. Le roman est le récit d'une tentative d'exploration polaire par Robert Walton. La majeure partie de ce récit est constituée par l'histoire de la vie de Victor Frankenstein que Walton a recueilli sur la banquise. Ce récit tourne lui même autour de la narration à Frankenstein, par le monstre auquel il a donné vie, des tourments de celui-ci, qui justifient la haine qu'il lui porte.

Summary:

A Los Angeles Times Bestseller The most important development in American culture of the last two decades is the emergence of independent cinema as a viable alternative to Hollywood. Indeed, while Hollywood's studios devote much of their time and energy to churning out big-budget, star-studded event movies, a renegade independent cinema that challenges mainstream fare continues to flourish with strong critical support and loyal audiences. Cinema of Outsiders is the first and only comprehensive chronicle of contemporary independent movies from the late 1970s up to the present. From the hip, audacious early works of maverick David Lynch, Jim Jarmusch, and Spike Lee, to the contemporary Oscar-winning success of indie dynamos, such as the Coen brothers (Fargo), Quentin Tarentino (Pulp Fiction), and Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade), Levy describes in a lucid and accessible manner the innovation and diversity of American indies in theme, sensibility, and style. Documenting the socio-economic, political and artistic forces that led to the rise of American independent film, Cinema of Outsiders depicts the pivotal role of indie guru Robert Redford and his Sundance Film Festival in creating a showcase for indies, the function of film schools in supplying talent, and the continuous tension between indies and Hollywood as two distinct industries with their own structure, finance, talent and audience. Levy describes the major cycles in the indie film movement: regional cinema, the New York school of film, African-American, Asian American, gay and lesbian, and movies made by women. Based on exhaustive research of over 1,000 movies made between 1977 and 1999, Levy evaluates some 200 quintessential indies, including Choose Me, Stranger Than Paradise, Blood Simple, Blue Velvet, Desperately Seeking Susan, Slacker, Poison, Reservoir Dogs, Gas Food Lodging, Menace II Society, Clerks, In the Company of Men, Chasing Amy, The Apostle, The Opposite of Sex, and Happiness. Cinema of Outsiders reveals the artistic and political impact of bold and provocative independent movies in displaying the cinema of "outsiders"-the cinema of the "other America."

Summary:

451 degrés Fahrenheit représentent la température à laquelle un livre s'enflamme et se consume. Dans cette société future où la lecture, source de questionnement et de réflexion, est considérée comme un acte antisocial, un corps spécial de pompiers est chargé de brûler tous les livres, dont la détention est interdite pour le bien collectif. Montag, le pompier pyromane, se met pourtant à rêver d'un monde différent, qui ne bannirait pas la littérature et l'imaginaire au profit d'un bonheur immédiatement consommable. Il devient dès lors un dangereux criminel, impitoyablement poursuivi par une société qui désavoue son passé.
