And then there’s Lisa (Jennifer Jason Leigh), a woman who sounds and looks different from everyone else in the world. The film is a meditation on life, love, wants, needs, and perceptions of self and others.Scenes from Anomalisa contains an abridged script, as well as behind-the-scenes images and film stills. It adapts the feeling and nuance of the film into a package that will appeal not only to fans of Kaufman and Johnson, but to cinephiles and animation fans as well.

    Title: SO ANYWAY...
    Author: CLEESE JOHN
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Candid and brilliantly funny, this is the story of how a tall, shy youth from Weston-super-Mare went on to become a comedy giant.

    En route, John Cleese describes his nerve-wracking first public appearance, at St Peter's Preparatory School at the age of 8 and 5/6ths; his endlessly peripatetic home life with parents who seemed incapable of staying in any house for longer than six months; his first experiences in the world of work as a teacher who knew next to nothing about the subjects he was expected to teach; his hamster-owning days at Cambridge; and his first encounter with the man who would be his writing partner for over two decades, Graham Chapman. And so on to his dizzying ascent via script-writing for Peter Sellers, David Frost, Marty Feldman and others to the heights of Monty Python.

    Punctuated from time to time with John Cleese's thoughts on topics as diverse as the nature of comedy, the relative merits of cricket and water-skiing, and the importance of knowing the dates of all the kings and queens of England, this is a masterly performance by a master performer.

    Publishing status: OCTOBER 2016 NEW RELEASE

    In just a few years, what used to be an immobile piece of living room furniture, which one had to sit in front of at appointed times in order to watch sponsored programming on a finite number of channels, morphed into a glowing cloud of screens with access to a near-endless supply of content available when and how viewers want it. With this phenomenon now a common cultural theme, a writer of David Thomson’s stature delivering a critical history, or “biography” of the six-decade television era, will be a significant event which could not be more timely. With Television, the critic and film historian who wrote what Sight and Sound‘s readers called “the most important film book of the last 50 years” has finally turned his unique powers of observation to the medium that has swallowed film whole.

    Over twenty-two thematically organized chapters, Thomson brings his provocatively insightful and unique voice to the life of what was television. David Thomson surveying a Boschian landscape, illuminated by that singular glow—always “on”—and peopled by everyone from Donna Reed to Dennis Potter, will be the first complete history of the defining medium of our time.

    The brilliant and essential guide to the award-winning director of Days of Heaven, Badlands and The Tree of Life.


    Terrence Malick's debut film, Badlands, announced the arrival of a unique talent. In the 40 years since that debut, Malick has only made 5 films, but they are distinctive in their beauty.

    This book is not meant to be a biography of Terrence Malick. The purpose behind the book is to introduce readers to the extraordinary universe of his film-making and to aid them in understanding his work. And to do this through the words of his closest collaborators - cinematographers, set designers, costumers, cameramen, directors, producers, and actors such as Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek and Jessica Chastain. As their words flow from one to another, they form a fascinating, kaleidoscopic vision of American film and specifically Malick's artistic world. who make up a film.

    This book is the fruit of a journey began years ago when Luciano Baracaroli, Carlo Hintermann, Gerardo Panichi and Daniele Villa made a documentary on the work of Terrence Malick, which led to the making of this book as well.

    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: ‘... 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.
