The Secrets of Body Language gives a thoroughgoing overview on general behavior as well as on each of the body parts and signals they give. Once you have learned how to understand these signals, you will see the world in a much more deeper way.

Gebundene Ausgabe - 160 pages - Museum of Modern Art - Englisch ´Art and fine craftsmanship, which are essential to Italian culture, are evident in these gloriously beautiful posters.´ Martin Scorsese ´The Italians have their own way of making movies and their own way of making movie posters, too—these are images overflowing with action and emotion. Dave Kehr has put together a fine book depicting the beauty that reflects the great contribution of Italian cinema.´ Clint Eastwood With a pride in fine printing and an innate pre-disposition toward the grand and passionate, Italy has produced some of the finest film posters in the world.These colorful images, startling in their freshness and boldness, arouse expectations of romance, mystery, action, or escape. Italian Film Posters is the first collection of these highly evoca-tive images to be published in English. While Italian film posters are well known to Euro-pean collectors and cinema lovers—and the work of artists such as Anselmo Ballester, Alfredo Capitani, and Luigi Martinati is displayed in muse-urns and commands high prices at auction—they remain largely unknown to the American public. This overview of the Italian tradition begins with the Art Nouveau-influenced designs of the silent-film era, moves into the stunning stone lithographs of the 1930s and 1940s, and concludes with the idiosyncratic creations made possible by offset printing in the 1950s and 1960s. The volume opens with a lively and highly inform-ative introduction by Dave Kehr, a NewYork-based film journalist who has written for the Chicago Tribune and the NewYork Daily News and currently writes for The NewYork Times. The 128 color illus-trations, including details of several of the posters, are organized thematically into six sections: ´´Fantasy & Adventure,´´ ´´The Musical,´´ ´´The West-ern,´´ ´´Melodrama,´´ ´´Film Noir,´´ and ´´The New Wave.´´ This organization invites many dramatic and unusual comparisons and contrasts. Included are examples of such film classics as L´Avventura, 8Z, French Cancan, Spellbound, Casablanca, The Lady from Shanghai, La Notte, Bicycle Thieves, and many others. Besides the films themselves, no other arti-fact of the film industry is more provocative than the poster. Film historians and archivists, movie-goers, poster collectors, and the general reader will find the images in this book captivating, amus-ing, sensual, and, often, astonishing.
In Escape to Shangri-La, Michael X - the very first American researcher to write about Nazi UFOs - provides an overview of the situation. Using early 1950s articles from Police Gazette, Michael X was able to piece together the story - the escape of U-boats U-530 and U-977 from Nazi Germany. Hitler went to Argentina, where UFOs were being developed in secret underground installations by West German scientists. Meanwhile, American Nazi saucers were being developed in places like West Virginia and Area 51. The Nazi saucers were modeled on the silent ´´electromagnetic´´ or ´´bell´´ saucers built of copper by Viktor Schauberger, an Austrian inventor, in 1940. (Michael X´s The German Saucer Story describes the Schriever-Habermohl and Bellonzo-Schriever-Miethe discs, concluding that German scientists were busy assembling large flying discs in underground factories around the world.) This is an exact facsimile of the original 1960 Saucerian edition, with all of the flavor of samizdat reports of the era, including artsy paste-up and a whimsical feel, despite the subject matter. This wonderful piece of vintage Americana makes a great addition to the shelf of today´s serious ufologist. But more than that, it is a piece of history. Escape to Shangri-La provides details that may have been lost along the way - as the material in this book was spread and co-opted by so many other researchers. Here, however, is where it all began. Not long after Michael X made these revelations, he disappeared forever. Was he taken away by the saucers, or by the MIB? With time, and with increased consciousness about this corner of history, perhaps we will someday find out. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Barker.

Film music is as old as cinema itself. Years before synchronized sound became the norm, projected moving images were shown to musical accompaniment, whether performed by a lone piano player or a hundred-piece orchestra. Today film music has become its own industry, indispensable to the marketability of movies around the world. Film Music: A Very Short Introduction is a compact, lucid, and thoroughly engaging overview written by one of the leading authorities on the subject. After opening with a fascinating analysis of the music from a key sequence in Quentin Tarantino´s Reservoir Dogs, Kathryn Kalinak introduces listeners not only to important composers and musical styles but also to modern theoretical concepts about how and why film music works. Throughout the book she embraces a global perspective, examining film music in Asia and the Middle East as well as in Europe and the United States. Key collaborations between directors and composers - Alfred Hitchcock and Bernard Herrmann, Akira Kurosawa and Fumio Hayasaka, Federico Fellini and Nino Rota, to name only a few - come under scrutiny, as do the oft-neglected practices of the silent film era. She also explores differences between original film scores and compilation soundtracks that cull music from preexisting sources. As Kalinak points out, film music can do many things, from establishing mood and setting to clarifying plot points and creating emotions that are only dimly realized in the images. This book illuminates the many ways it accomplishes those tasks and will have its listeners thinking a bit more deeply and critically the next time they sit in a darkened movie theater and music suddenly swells as the action unfolds onscreen. 1.
