The Japanese filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu is not as well known as Akira Kurosawa, but his films are as extraordinary and original as those of his more famous counterpart. David Bordwell has divided this thorough introduction to Ozu’s life and work into two sections. The first offers a theory of themes, ideas, and obsessions that run through Ozu’s large body of films. The second treats each of Ozu’s movies in turn, closely examining their individual particularities. Ozu’s films are quiet and methodically paced, but richly rewarding and deeply moving. Rent any one or two of the

Two types of films were examined with respect to fundamental properties that are essential for biosensor applications. The first was formed by electrostatic binding of charged electroactive transition metal complexes into hydrophilic ion exchange polymers. The second comprised thin phospholipid layers, prepared from liposomes composed of mixtures of naturally occurring amphiphiles. Several lipophilic biomolecules are located in & designed to function within the lipid bilayer structure of the membranes that enclose cells & cell organelles. Illustrated.

Play It Again, Sam is a timely investigation of a topic that until now has received almost no critical attention in film and cultural studies: the cinematic remake. As cinema enters its second century, more remakes are appearing than ever before, and these writers consider the full range: Hollywood films that have been recycled by Hollywood, such as The Jazz Singer, Cape Fear, and Robin Hood; foreign films including Breathless; and Three Men and a Baby, which Hollywood has reworked for American audiences; and foreign films based on American works, among them Yugoslav director Emir Kusturica's

Rainer Werner Fassbinder is one of the most prominent and important authors of post-war European cinema. Thomas Elsaesser is the first to write a thoroughly analytical study of his work. He stresses the importance of a closer understanding of Fassbinder's career through a re-reading of his films as textual entities. Approaching the work from different thematic and analytical perspectives, Elsaesser offers both an overview and a number of detailed readings of crucial films, while also providing a European context for Fassbinder's own coming to terms with fascism.

Thinking in Pictures shows for the first time, in rigorous shot-by-shot analyses, what Griffith really did--and allows us to understand the implications for film narrative in general. Anyone with an interest in early cinema will find the book compelling, but the text will also intrigue readers seeking understanding of film usages on a more general, theoretical level.When Griffith began making films, the shot had been recognized as a basic element of film, the camera had a certain amount of freedom, transitional effects had been explored, audiences displayed an appetite for narrative. It was th
