Über diesen Titel
Twayne Filmmakers SeriesSeries Editor: Frank Beaver, University of MichiganThis series explores the history of motion pictures by studying individual filmmakers and cinematic movements, illuminating the most significant aspects of film for the student, scholar, and general reader.An Academy Award-winning director whose trademark infotainment films, in which factually based events in history are presented with an editorial biasPlatoon, Salvadore, Born on the Fourth of July, and JFK Stone has spawned vigorous debate over the ethics of blurring the line between news journalism and fictional narrative. And while the aforementioned films lean towards news, many of his other films, such as Wall Street and Talk Radio are clearly fictionalized explorations of real situations in American society today.The Twayne Filmmakers Series provides students with rich opportunities for studying individual filmmakers, national cinema, and filmmaking technique. Books in the Filmmakers Series are written by major film scholars, historians, and critics who bring their special insights to a highly diverse collection of studies about the twentieth centurys major art form: the motion picture.Frank Beaver, Series EditorI opened it with dread, but as it turned out, I did not have to ignore this as another whipping. On the contrary, I learned things about myself and the way my films are perceived. My congratulations on a sincere and well-crafted analysis.Oliver Stone . . . a welcome addition to film collections.Library JournalFrom Library Journal:
Twayne's "Filmmakers" series (e.g., Kenneth C. Kaleta's David Lynch , LJ 12/92) continues with this volume on Stone, the Oscar-winning writer/director whose films include JFK (1991) and Born on the Fourth of July (1990). As one of the most talked-about directors around, Stone has come a long way since his debut, a forgotten horror film called Seizure (1974). Beaver (communications, Univ. of Michigan), author of several previous film texts, takes a clear-eyed look at Stone's work, praising its passion and skill while candidly assessing the director's shortcomings. Still young, Stone will undoubtedly make more noteworthy films (this book doesn't include the recent Heaven and Earth , which completes the Vietnam trilogy he began with Platoon in 1986), and it's a bit early for the definitive work on his career. Nevertheless, this is a highly competent look at an important artist and will be a welcome addition to most film collections.
