    In the 1980s, director Bruce Beresford and producer Sue Milliken were mid-career in a world that welcomed film makers. They worked together on a number of projects, some of which never made it to the first day of filming, and stayed in touch by fax machine. As well as taking care of professional business, the faxes are chock full of industry gossip and news, ruminations on books they had read or films that they had seen. It’s a fun, fascinating, informative and ultimately charming read.

    The Unusual Suspects is a list of 104 feature films which Ginnane believes an awareness, and knowledge of, may alleviate much of the need for a conventional film school based curriculum for emergent producers, directors and writers. As David Stratton says in his foreword to the book: β€˜... you can learn more about making movies by experiencing the great movies of the past than by any other method.’

    Each film is given a page to itself (with a still from the film on the opposite page) and as well as an analysis of the film including plot lines or plot elements (so spoiler alert) he also talks about the director and his place in film history.

    Wes Anderson is the most influential comedic voice from the past two decades of American cinema. A true auteur, his intimate involvement in each of his films; Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Moonrise Kingdom, includes scriptwriting, set design, soundtrack selections and unit photography. Anderson's visual artistry, inimitable tone and idiosyncratic characterisations make each of his films instantly recognisable as "Andersonian."

    The Wes Anderson Collection is the first in-depth overview of Anderson's work, guiding readers through the life and career of one of the most talked-about contemporary filmmakers. Previously unpublished photos, artwork and ephemera complement a book-length interview between Anderson and award-winning film critic Matt Zoller Seitz, who offers insights into Anderson's creative process, influences, and the production of his films. These elements come together in a meticulously designed object in the spirit of Anderson's movies: melancholy and playful, wise and childish--and thoroughly original.

    Woody Allen is not only one of the great movie directors but one of the foremost creative artists of our time. In over forty-five movies, from Annie Hall to Midnight in Paris, and through a career that's included stand-up, play-writing, screenwriting, directing, and acting, Woody has evolved more than reinvented himself. In the first biography of Allen in over twenty years, David Evanier writes about Allen's private life as well as his very public career. He untangles fact from rumor about Allen's relationship with Mia Farrow as well as the great scandals that surfaced in the 1990s and recently resurfaced, and makes thoughtful connections between Allen's romantic relationships and the characters in his movies.

    In fresh interviews with collaborators, boyhood pals, family and friends, Evanier fills in fascinating details about where Woody came from, how he got his start, and how he has been able to be moral in his business dealings and make exactly the movies that interest him most with the people who interest him most, from Diane Keaton to Cate Blanchett to Michael Caine.

    Even the closest Allen-watcher will be riveted by Evanier's rich portrait: detailed but sweeping, Woody is the biography of an artist who has never lost his passion, talent and capacity to break new artistic ground, who has always been swept up in the creative act of becoming.
